Product Overview

"

From the Publisher:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Rath shares the results of a landmark investigation.

More than a book about the workplace and more than a study of what makes friendships work, Vital Friends: The People You Can't Afford to Live Without (Gallup Press; hardcover, August 1, 2006) by Tom Rath is the first book to take a comprehensive look at the value of friendships in our society across both our private and public lives. The results are startling, provocative, and certain to change the way we look at friendships forever.

Drawing on more than 5 million interviews conducted by The Gallup Organization as well as the work of several leading researchers, Rath uncovers some startling truths about the bonds we form and how they affect everything from our attitude to our productivity.

Vital Friends shines a potent and provocative new light on the value of friendships throughout our lives and gives us each the tools to make the most of each and every one of these connections.
