We’ve all had friendships that have gone bad. Whether it takes the form of a simple yet inexplicable estrangement or a devastating betrayal, a failed friendship can make your life miserable, threaten your success at work or school, and even undermine your romantic relationships.

Finally there is help. In When Friendship Hurts, Jan Yager, recognized internationally as a leading expert on friendship, explores what causes friendships to falter and explains how to mend them — or end them. In this straightforward, illuminating book filled with dozens of quizzes and real-life examples, Yager covers all the bases, including:

The twenty-one types of negative friends — a rogues’ gallery featuring such familiar types as the Blood-sucker, the Fault-finder, the Promise Breaker, and the Copycat

How to recognize destructive friends as well as how to find ideal ones

The e-mail effect — how electronic communication has changed friendships for both the better and the worse

The misuse of friendship at work — how to deal with a co-worker’s lies, deceit, or attempts at revenge

How to stop obsessing about a failed friendship

And much more

The first highly prescriptive book to focus on the complexities of friendship, When Friendship Hurts demonstrates how, why, and when to let go of bad friends and how to develop the positive friendships that enrich our lives on every level. For everyone who has ever wondered about friends who betray, hurt, or reject them, this authoritative book provides invaluable insights and advice to resolve the problem once and for all.

    " A little simplistic, but some good advice and viewpoints. Presented in a little too much of a self-help "I wanna be Dr Phil" format. And amazingly glosses over some of the more subtle emotions you have towards friends. But still, worth the quick read. "

    " Excellent book on friendships, past and present! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 4/16/2013

    " S'ok. I guess I need to explore why I'm a loner now. Is that ok? Am I allowed to be a loner? Does that mean I'm some kind of freak? I must turn to pop psych to tell me I'm ok!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deja | 1/1/2013

    " As I said before, nothing special. Has some good thoughts, but on the other side there is too much psychoanalytic content that I don't like... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Latreviette | 10/5/2012

    " I heard the author on the radio discussing the book. The description was so interesting, I immediately put it on my wish list. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 8/30/2012

    " I was reminded that friendship is voluntary and that it's okay to let a friend go even though it hurts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 5/12/2012

    " I learned a lot from this original researcher who specializes in friendship. Fascinating insights into friendship, coupled with great advice on dealing with friendship and loss. "
