Author: Marisa G Franco
Format: Paperback

When was the last time you made a new friend? For many adults, the answer is too long ago. Loneliness is an increasing problem across the world, with swathes of people unsure how to go about establishing new connections outside the fertile school, college, or university years. In this rigorously researched and compassionate book, friendship expert Dr Marisa Franco explains how the undervaluing of friendship in our culture has led to this epidemic of isolation – and what we can do about it. Weaving together neuroscience and psychology with interviews, personal stories and tips to help readers understand why they may be struggling to form lasting friendships, and what the benefits of friendships are -including mental, social, and physical benefits. This book is a must-have for anyone wondering how they can start to facilitate new relationships.
