'Friendship' is a fascinating investigation of the science and history of friendship and the profound biological, psychological, and emotional underpinnings of this core human (and nonhuman) experience. Celebrated science journalist Lydia Denworth traces the development of the “social brain” from prehistoric life on the African savannas to the contemporary virtual networks of Facebook. A perfect look at the bonds that hold us together, even when we are forced to be apart.
