Good concept. Some of the stories are great, others so-so.

I got this book because I had at the time lost a very dear friend. We have since found our way back to each other, but this book did help me decide to be the one to make the "first move".

I first read this book when it came out years ago. Saw it here and decided to look at it again because one of my cherished friendships just disintegrated in a truly mystifying and heartbreaking way. This is a good book to read if you are trying to make sense of a broken friendship. You realize that you are not alone. You realize that lives are complicated and sometimes make no sense. Its a good book for healing.
