If you feel tongue-tied in a group, struggle with shyness, or have ever made a mistake that cost you a friend, you’re not alone. Being able to make and keep good friends is so important to our happiness and even our success in life that improving our friendship skills is a must. That’s where this book can help you! Inside you’ll find a blueprint for building friendships: treating others with respect and kindness, having a sense of humor, listening to and looking out for one another, and more.
Getting started is as basic as knowing how to begin and carry on a conversation, and you’ll find plenty of suggestions on how to improve these skills and make a good first impression. A Good Friend gives you ten tips on getting along with others, plus a set of people skills that you can use in all kinds of social situations. Also included is a list of behaviors you’ll want to avoid so you don’t jeopardize or damage your friendships.
