"In I Know How You Feel Diane Barth refuses easy assumptions and definitions about women's friendships. The result is a gorgeous and vital exploration of the landscape of women's desire, capacity, and essential need for connection with other women." -Victoria Redel, author of Before Everything

"I Know How You Feel is a smart, perceptive, and complex study of women's friendships and how they enhance, color in, and shape our lives." -Susan Shapiro, author of Unhooked and Lighting Up

"Diane Barth's chapter on loss and rejection is incredibly insightful. I found it especially helpful in thinking about past relationships that didn't seem to have a proper end." -Gabourey Sidibe, author of This Is Just My Face

"Diane Barth helps us honor the richness, the joys, the everyday sustenance women's friendships give, as well as the complications and difficulties these intimate friendships can engender. A smart guide for women of all ages." -Susie Orbach, author of Fat Is a Feminist Issue and co-author of Between Women

"Draw[ing] on interviews with diverse women to examine the 'magical, meaningful, and surprisingly difficult connections they make with friends' . . . a friendly, supportive guide for navigating relationships."-Kirkus Reviews

"A lively and compassionate guide that defines what is meant by 'friend' in the 21st century . . . Barth's engaging guide introduces readers to many types of women and ideas and contains timely advice for anyone who wants to befriend a woman."-Library Journal

"A compelling look at the ways in which women bond, Barth's book is eye-opening and essential reading for anyone trying to build--or maintain--a strong social circle."-BookPage
