Summary

“Do I have enough friends?” “Why did my friendship end?” and “What makes a good friendship work?”

These are questions that F. Diane Barth, a psychotherapist widely recognized for her expertise in women’s relationships, fields all the time. In I Know How You Feel, she draws out engaging stories from a lively and diverse cast of women, many of whom speak about feelings they haven’t shared before. She explores how life changes affect women’s friendships in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Interweaving examples from classic women’s literature to chick flicks, she provides grounded advice on how to manage betrayal and rejection, how to deal with a narcissistic or bossy friend, what to do when your best friend and your family don’t get along, how to let go of a friendship that has stopped working, and much more. A timely, empathetic guide for women in their twenties to their sixties and beyond.

"I Know How You Feel is a smart, perceptive, and complex study of women’s friendships and how they enhance, color in, and shape our lives.”

Gabourey Sidibe, author of This Is Just My Face

“Diane Barth helps us honor the richness, the joys, the everyday sustenance women’s friendships give, as well as the complications and difficulties these intimate friendships can engender. A smart guide for women of all ages.”
