Amazon reviewers say:

A unique and wonderful guide to making friends, quickly and for life.
This is NOT your average book with trite advice on "how to make friends" It is far superior in every way. There is solid evidence for everything she says. And,like all Leil Lowndes' books, they are so much fun to read. Stories about some of her "friends" had me ROFL

I'll never be without friends again after reading this book.
I really needed to hear some suggestions on developing/maintaining and nurturing friendships. This book was more than I could have hoped for at a time in my life when I needed friends the most, and didn't seem to have any. It's helped to change my life and see what's most important to me in addition to my immediate family.

It has worked for me and I know it will work for you.
After reading this book and putting her methods to the test, many of my friends want to know why so many people are drawn to me. I just smile and tell them to read the book. It is great for forming personal and interpersonal relationships.

This book spoke to the heart
Reading this book has been like participating in the best quality personal presentation seminar. I've paid hundreds of dollars to attend such seminars and have not achieved the results that I have already achieved after two reads of Ms. Lowndes' book.
Howard Fields (Chicago, IL)
A wonderful book from a wonderful lady!
God Bless Leil Lowndes! How beautiful she is, in every sense of the word, for bringing forth this piece of work to us from her heart. Her book suffuses such a refreshing sense that we can altogether break from the cycle of cliches associated with the labeling on different groups of society. It was a pleasure to read this book.
