Synopsis

The instant New York Times Bestseller

In Platonic, psychologist and friendship expert Dr Marisa G. Franco unpacks why undervaluing friendship in our culture has led to an epidemic of isolation, and what we can do about it.

'Wise, concrete and effective - my friendships are better for it' – Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed

When was the last time you put yourself out there to make a new friend?
How do we keep friends in an era of distraction, burnout, and chaos, especially in a society that often prizes romantic love at the expense of other relationships?

This book offers a clear and actionable blueprint for forging strong and lasting connections with others – and becoming our happiest selves in the process.

Using the groundbreaking framework behind attachment theory, this book teaches us to identify and understand our individual style – secure, anxious or avoidant – and recognize that how we behave in relationships is the key to unlocking what we’re doing right (and what we could do better) in our friendships.

Weaving together cutting-edge research in psychology with interviews, personal stories and practical advice, this book gives us the tools we need to be better friends, and better humans.

'A timely, unique guide to approaching friendship with the love (and self-reflection) it deserves' – Francesca Specter, author of Alonement
