Publisher's Summary

How to make male friends...as a grown-ass man!

When you were young, for a male to make friends with another male was pretty damn simple - you walked up to them and asked them to be your friend. Try that as an adult and you will get some very strange looks! 

With this audiobook, best-selling author and speaker Ben D. Ingham has successfully unlocked the code and made it so much easier to make and keep male friendships.

Topics covered include:

  • Male friendships 101: the key?
  • Finding friends and keeping them as an adult
  • How to actually meet new buds as an adult
  • Effortless small talk and banter
  • The key to asking to hang out
  • The rules of male mates
  • Dealing with social situations
  • Moving from virtual friends to IRL
  • Break down the barrier, smash the glass wall
  • And so much more!

“The perfect guide for any guy living in these modern times. Everything is broken into easy to understand sections, making a once difficult and awkward situation so much easier.” (Colin Timberlake, Cal Magazine)

Was actually shocked how good it was

Had no idea what to expect as this is not exactly the sort of book I would usually go for. I was worried it would all be a bit cheesy but was very relieved to find out it definitely isn't.
What is IS, is a very effective and realistic guide. I can honestly and sincerely say my social circle has improved a lot in recent months thanks mostly to what I learnt from this book.

Fantastic, now I understand the recommendations!

I have seen this book mentioned in a few blogs and on a few podcasts. I was a little dubious at first as this is not the sort of book I would usually go for, but I thought I would give it a go - and I am very very happy I did! Thankfully it was not cheesy or cringeworthy. It was just really honest, open and full of practical advice for male friendship in these times. Really recommend this one!

Masculine

I was afraid this book would all be a little HIPPY but it really wasn't. A guide to the modern masculine man and friendships

NOT cheesy

Dont be worried if u think (like me!) that this book will be cheesy. Its the opposite. A real book for our times for the grown man and some good use of humour throughout.

Fine enough

Nothing revolutionary. I actually think it's more valuable as a reminder of an idea than a manual on how to achieve it. It's basically
1. Make friends
2. Here are some ideas.

Not bad, not revolutionary.

Great Tips on Making & Keeping Friends

There was nothing earth-shattering in this audiobook for me, but there were many concrete and helpful tips which I think will help me to make friends and be a better friend.

probably the most revelatory piece of advice I gleaned from this audiobook was that it is good to actively seek out friends with the traits that you appreciate, rather than always pouring all your time into the people that have just randomly plopped into your lap.

A genuinely great book. Found this modern, fresh, honest and not cheesy at all (which is what I was worried about at first).

I could have written this myself

I could have written this myself. The suggestions were so obvious, that I found it complete waste of money and a complete waste of time.

it's not to say say the content wasn't relevant, it was just so obvious that you could look out of a window and think of all of this yourself...
