The frantic pace and casual attitudes of modern life have made real friendship a rare experience. The Art of Friendship shows how making true connections can greatly enhance one's life. Seventy brief essays present simple but effective "rules of connecting" with action points to help you put each rule into practice in daily life. Woven throughout are personal anecdotes from the Horchows, sharing their experiences of friendship.
Recognizing that friendships take many forms, the authors offer practical, proven advice that demystifies the process of making friends.
The rules include:
How to create rapport-- even in a crowd
How to transform an acquaintance into a friend
When to e-mail, pick up the phone, send a note, or meet in person
How to maintain long-term friendships --and even when it's time to quit
The book opens with a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell (author of The Tipping Point) that explores the Horchows' special talent for making and keeping friends. Whether your goal is to start a new relationship or reinvest in a longstanding friendship, this inspiring book will reveal how you can build more meaningful connections in your life.

ROGER HORCHOW is the founder of the Horchow Collection, the first luxury mail order only retailer, and a Tony Award winning Broadway producer. His talent for connecting earned him a chapter in Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point.
SALLY HORCHOW is a lifestyle and trend writer whose work appears regularly in publications like the New York Times, Town & Country and DailyCandy.comFrom AudioFile:
The Horchows advise listeners on meeting and making new friends, building foundations for lasting friendships, and managing "advanced friendships." Though their "rules for connecting" are indeed simple, they're often overlooked. In his excellent introduction, Malcom Gladwell explains that the Horchows mean to demystify friendship which, like crime, is simply a matter of "means, motive, and opportunity." Though the book is narrated mainly by Holter Graham, who conveys the message without sounding preachy, the Horchows weigh in frequently. Roger, who has a gravelly Texas accent, and his daughter, Sally, pert and urbane, read the many sidebars. Their friendly voices and entertaining stories enhance this production--which would make a nice gift to a friend. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
