  1. This is the book the world needs! I am a firm believer that God speaks to us through those who He puts into our lives. Rich’s book was a Godsend and arrived in my life at God’s perfect timing.
    Ladies, please don’t let “man cave” hold you back. This is an excellent book for us, too!
    In my humble opinion, this could be the best gift you could give your family and friends.
    Big shout out to Rich and a gigantic thank you for writing this book!

    1. Thank you for the kind words about my book, Nancy. I definitely wrote it with the women in mind as well though not the primary audience since I could only bring my male perspective. I do hope that many women will read the book too in order to encourage their men to seek better friendships or for their own friendships (yes, many of the principles apply to female-female friends). Thanks again and help spread the word about the need for better friendships for both men and women.
