Women have worked long and hard to become the strong, independent people they are today, and every aspect of that journey has been chronicled and analyzed except one: how women's friendships have or have not changed as their roles in life have evolved. Psychotherapist, media dynamo (with multiple TV appearances on Oprah and Regis Philbin, among others), and best-selling author Annette Annechild spent the past three years talking with over a thousand women about their friendship experiences and now, in I Can Tell Her Anything, she explains for the first time how women relate to each other throughout their life span and why, in the end, they feel closer to their girlfriends than anyone else in their lives. Annechild then molds the lessons of these stories and her own experience into valuable advice to help readers choose friends more wisely, help their daughters and younger women cope with friendship issues in positive ways, and much more. I Can Tell Her Anything is an ambitious and wide-ranging exploration that captures the beauty and universal importance of friendship between women and helps readers be the best friends they can be.

This book was an amazing read. The role of our girlfriends is often one filled with trials and tribulations, ups and downs, but in the end almost always critically important to our emotional health (and our ability to get through the day). I would highly recommend this book to anyone who realizes how odd it is that we take time to consider the home in which we were raised, our spouses and our children, but never stop to think about how we choose our friends -- or how important choosing correctly might be. If girlfriends are important to you, especially understanding the dynamics of these important relationships, then read this book!
