A lovely, lively look at the importance of friendship as an antidote to loneliness.--Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of A Manual for Heartache and The Last Act of Love
Kate's mixture of wild and stupendous imagination, emotional intelligence, and honest human approach in her writing strikes chords.--Gemma Cairney
Kate's a brilliant journalist. Her look at friendship as a central component to our increasingly isolated and lonely lives really interests me from a social perspective; why are we so disconnected when we're so connected?
A gorgeous book and a reminder of just how intense and special female friendship is.--Emma Gannon, author of CtrlAltDelete
A wide-ranging exploration of what friends mean to us full of rich personal insights and commonsense, accompanied by a good dose of science.--Robin Dunbar, author of How Many Friends Does One Person Need?
Kate has written a beautiful book about something so specific and unchartered, yet so universal. Friendship can change your life as could this book.--Dolly Alderton, author of Everything I Know About Love
Witty, relatable, thought-provoking. If Jon Ronson and Marian Keyes morphed into one magic person and wrote a book, this book would be it.--Rosie Waterland, author of The Anti-Cool Girl
Friends are a critical component of any person's happiness and deserve to be understood as such. So I'm happy to see that Kate Leaver is dedicating an entire book to the subject of friendship. Give me all the scientific research I can handle on why it's good for me to continue to prioritize my friends--in spite of the various societal pressures telling me otherwise.
Fresh and thought-provoking . . . talks about connection and loneliness in a way we need to hear.
The Friendship Cure is here to make us love our girlfriends all over again . . . you'll want to buy it and give it to all of your friends immediately.
