    This book builds a dialogue on friendship, among two and three people, the effect of which is to draw you in. The conversation at first seems to be slow; the text discusses theory, but the style gives a verisimilitude of friendship. One feels that one is part of the discussion group, like a book club.

    What is said about friendship is a real eye-opener, putting friendship at the service of life moving towards God, instead of a mere passing experience. It also helps one to understand how some friendships 'go sour' as it were, without putting any judgement on either party.

    The book nicely brings in classical authors who almost seem, by the quotes, to take part in the discussion.

    It really helped me over some rough spots in my relations with others.
