The Art of Friendship

In his latest book, daring innovator Andreas Salcher gets to grips with one of life’s big themes: friendship. His prose is intimate, brutally honest and wholly empathetic. A big house in the country, money in the bank or a successful career are not the keys to a long, healthy and satisfying life, but friendships.

Along with love and death, friendship is one of the three topics that occupy us all. In the chapter »The 10 commandments of friendship«, the bestselling author explains how true friendships can be achieved, in a style that is both touching and intellectually challenging. Drawing on his own personal experiences and accompanied by many fascinating real-life examples, he classifies the various types of friendships and answers the fundamental question: »Am I really a good friend?«

 


»When it comes to his visions for the future, he is fearless; when it comes to bringing people together, he is thoughtful; when it comes to making the world a better place, he is tireless.«
lan M. Webber, longstanding editor of the Harvard Business Review
