Offers a humorous look at the many qualities of modern friendship and describes the favors friends do for one another
A good friend sees the bright side in a new hairdo. A good friend arrives before the other guests to unmold the chopped liver-but understands that "I've got company" needs no further explanation. A good friend gets sick when you get sick, shouts you across the finish line, never gets insulted when you want to be alone. For the most elite group of comrades a person can have, there's now a one-book-fits-all gift of specific appreciation. More than 50 whimsical drawings with funny captions define the joys of the buddy system, capturing both its exhilarating enthusiasm for the heights of life and its calm endurance during the pits. A GOOD FRIEND's double full-color cover is designed to attract those best and dearest people who are always ready to listen, especially to the juicy parts, but in turn want only a cup of coffee and perhaps a good cheese Danish. Over 357,000 copies in print.
