In the book, the doctors use the example of their own friendship to explore the power of this connection. Friendship takes work, but it should be celebrated for the ways it can improve our lives and help us grow.

Close friends are lifelines; the people who help us through the worst days and who cheer us on during the best. We can learn to nurture our friendships most effectively by keeping a few principles in mind.

For example, though similarities are naturally comforting, it is also important to respect and celebrate differences because these are rich opportunities to learn.

Listen as Dr. Bernstein and Dr. Rapaport join Dr. Taz to share insights from the book, as well as the beautiful journey of their life-long friendship.
