UPDATE! Watch Carlin Flora talk to Kathie Lee and Hoda on TODAY about how to avoid being your best friend’s worst enemy (or if you should just break up with them):
Carlin Flora’s FRIENDFLUENCE: The Surprising Ways Friends Make Us Who We Are is the talk of the blogosphere, generating effusive praise such as “I’d definitely recommend this as a read whatever stage of life you’re in” and “a book that clearly points out the need of our friends and the enormous benefits we receive from them… everyone should have this book!” Gretchen Rubin, creator of The Happiness Project, states, “Reading about the importance of friendship [in FRIENDFLUENCE] will make you realize how important it is to find ways to keep your friendships strong.”
Maybe the best way to “meet” this book is to watch Why Friends Are Great For You, a short video created by the author featuring three sets of friends discussing why their friendships make their lives better. Among those interviewed are writers Nate Silver, Kate Bolick and Jenny 8. Lee.
Tune in to the TODAY Show on Tuesday at 10am to hear Carlin talk to Kathy Lee and Hoda about how your best friends can also be your worst enemies. Then, join Carlin on Twitter for a chat on Wednesday at noon!
