A woman can always count on are her friends--right? But what if those friendships are hurtful, harmful, even toxic? Susan Shapiro Barash explores the ten types of female friends and shows you why and how women get stuck with the worst kinds, the ways to get "unstuck, and how to recognize a true friend." For example: - The Leader of the Pack--it's all on her terms - The Doormat--and why you're the one paying the price - The Misery Lover--she wants to feel your pain. Really. - The User--and why you seldom see her coming - The Trophy Friend--and what you gain from each other Provocative and fascinating, Susan Shapiro Barash looks at the bonds (and bondage) of female friendships in a new light.

Industry Reviews

"Barash skillfully channels her interviewees' experiences and convinces that these real and raw friendships are the norm: When it comes to the glittering prizes of life, women congregate, even if there are undercurrents of envy, jealousy, and competition in the relationships." --Publishers Weekly
