    The Friendship Factor is a new book by Brenda Poinsett that explores the friendships of women. This book is divided into three parts. In the first part, the author discusses why women need other women, our need to talk and fellowship with other women, and what makes the bond between women so strong, among other topics. The second part of the book, called Circle the Wagons, Girls talks about the life events when we really need our friends. The author also discusses the different stages of a womans life and how it impacts her friendships. The third part of the book is all about how to be a good friend by listening, being available, and so on.Now, I really enjoyed reading The Friendship Factor, a lot, but I have never been a normal woman. There were several things I read in this book that I just simply did not relate to. Usually when I have a problem, the last thing I want to do is sit around with a group of women and share. Perhaps, Im not the greatest friend I could be because I tend to be more uncomfortable around some women, so those types of friendships have not been a big priority. I have some women friends that I value highly, but my introvert nature makes it hard for me to relate to some of the material in this book.For a normal woman, this book is a treasure. Like I said, I really enjoyed this book. This is not a book of fluff. This is a book of substance and biblical wisdom written with a lot of personality. There is a lot of practical advice and personal reflection from the author which makes this an interesting and useful book. I probably took the most away from the third part of the book which offers advice about being a good friend. I do have some friends who are very dear to me (they know who they are) and I think this book has given me some great advice and incentive to be a better friend. I highly recommend this book to all women who love their friendships. It is a wonderful book.
