The Horchows advise listeners on meeting and making new friends, building foundations for lasting friendships, and managing "advanced friendships." Though their "rules for connecting" are indeed simple, they're often overlooked. In his excellent introduction, Malcom Gladwell explains that the Horchows mean to demystify friendship which, like crime, is simply a matter of "means, motive, and opportunity." Though the book is narrated mainly by Holter Graham, who conveys the message without sounding preachy, the Horchows weigh in frequently. Roger, who has a gravelly Texas accent, and his daughter, Sally, pert and urbane, read the many sidebars. Their friendly voices and entertaining stories enhance this production--which would make a nice gift to a friend.
