Our best friends, gal-pals, bromances, Twitter followers, Facebook friends, long- distance buddies and WhatsApp threads define us in ways we rarely acknowledge. There is so much about friendship we either don t know or don t articulate: why do some friendships last a lifetime, while others are only temporary? How do you break up with a toxic friend? And maybe the most important question: how can we live in the most interconnected age and still find ourselves stuck in the greatest loneliness epidemic of our time? It s killing us, making us miserable and causing a public health crisis. What if meaningful friendships are the solution, not a distraction

In The Friendship Cure, Kate Leaver's much anticipated manifesto brings to light what modern friendship means, how it can survive, why we need it and what we can do to get the most from it. From behavioural scientists to best mates, Kate finds extraordinary stories and research, drawing on her own experiences to create a fascinating blend of accessible smart thinking, investigative journalism, pop culture and memoir.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Kate's mixture of wild and stupendous imagination, emotional intelligence and honest human approach in her writing strikes chords. She will write a wonderful book!' -- Gemma Cairney * BBC1 Radio *
`Kate has a lightness of comedic touch and flair that most writers would kill for. I can always count on her to make the serious stuff funny and readable, and the actually funny stuff even funnier still' -- Zing Tseng * Broadly Editor *
`So many of Kate's pieces get a huge response because they are so painfully and beautifully frank and yet so warm... and I find myself reflecting on them for a long time afterwards' -- Emma Gannon, author of CtrlAltDelete and blogger at girllostincity.com
