Summary "This informative book presents stories of real friendships - told by the people who live them. These women talk candidly about what makes a best friend, about navigating the choppy waters of friendship, and much more. Using in-depth interviews, Women's Best Friendships focuses on the many facets of these complex relationships." "With heartfelt first-person accounts and insightful commentary from the author, this book examines three intertwining themes: feelings of competition, issues of dependence and independence, and knowing/understanding. It sheds light on areas of tension among women, especially difficulties in communication, frustration about not being entirely let into a friend's life and thought processes, and the feeling that one friend may value the friendship more than the other."--Jacket.
