How to Be a Friend

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Overview

Our friends have the ability to change the way we feel and think, and can even influence the development of our character. Good friends are hard to find, but they are necessary for a virtuous and satisfying life.

How to be a Friend is based on the teachings of Marcus Tullius Cicero and curated by Phillip Freeman, Professor of Classics at Pepperdine University. Cicero was part of the Academic Skeptic movement in Rome, which urged scholars to question their teachings and seek answers through reason over tradition and divinity.

This book aims to help us connect more easily with new friends and develop lasting friendships that enable us and those around us to feel loved and understood. Cicero implores us to be better friends and shows us how to choose the right ones through a genuine pursuit of mutual goodwill.
