Despite our interconnectedness, we are stuck in the greatest loneliness epidemic of our time. Journalist Kate Leaver believes that friendship is the essential cure for this modern malaise, and that, if treated as a priority, it could improve our physical health and emotional well-being.

Drawing upon the research of academics, behavioral scientists, and psychotherapists and the experiences of her friends, Leaver investigates in The Friendship Cure what friendship is, why we need it and what we can do to get the most from it. She answers questions including:
How do you "break up" with a toxic friend?
Can men and women really be platonic
How do you make friends as an adult?
How can friendships help us live longer, better lives?

Written with wit and charm, The Friendship Cure is a fascinating blend of investigative journalism, science, pop culture, and memoir for anyone trying to navigate this lonely world.
