THE FRIENDSHIP LAB, Rob Garfield, PhD

A startling study–drawing on more than four decades of research in men’s “Friendship Labs”–reveals what is really in the hearts and minds of men, and demonstrates that men who are capable of emotional intimacy with male friends are happier and more successful in all of their relationships.  Through powerful stories of men from many different socioeconomic backgrounds and sexual preferences, The Friendship Lab will resonate with men, the women who love them, and the professionals they turn to.  Dr. Garfield is a nationally recognized therapist and Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania.
