Not a particularly deep read, this book did provide many ideas that if put in place would help me develop new friendships and maintain those older friendships that I hold so dear. Several of the "rules" seemed redundant, but I decided to list some of my favorites (ones I think I do well and want to continue as well as ones I need to implement) as a reminder to myself. *24. Minimize Small Talk (make conversations deeper). *33. Travel (travel afar with someone near, travel with old friends, talk to other travelers, meet locals). *35. Emphasize Quality, not Quantity. *39. Express your affection (don't be afraid to tell friends how much the friendship means to you). *61. Don't keep score (do favors without anticipating anything in return).
