›False Friends‹ – falsche Freunde – sind Wörter, die, vereinfacht gesagt, gleich oder ähnlich klingen, aber ganz unterschiedliche Bedeutungen haben. "actual" ist nicht die englische Bedeutung von "aktuell", ein "Säbel" ist kein "sable", "to become" ist bekanntlich nicht "bekommen" und ein "Dom" ist auch kein "dome". Falsche Freunde sind also trügerisch – umso wichtiger ist es, sie zu kennen und zu vermeiden. In diesem kleinen Wörterbuch sind die 1500 wichtigsten ›False Friends‹ zusammengestellt. • ›False Friends‹ erkennen und vermeiden lernen • Alphabetisch angeordnet für schnelles, gezieltes Nachschlagen • Mit Beispielsätzen zum besseren Einprägen und Unterscheiden

'Fascinating...In essence, the number and quality of our friendships may have a bigger influence on our happiness, health and mortality risk than anything else in life save for giving up smoking' Guardian, Book of the Day Friends matter to us, and they matter more than we think. The single most surprising fact to emerge out of the medical literature over the last decade or so has been that the number and quality of the friendships we have has a bigger influence on our happiness, health and even mortality risk than anything else except giving up smoking. Robin Dunbar is the world-renowned psychologist and author who famously discovered Dunbar's number: how our capacity for friendship is limited to around 150 people. In Friends, he looks at friendship in the round, at the way different types of friendship and family relationships intersect, or at the complex of psychological and behavioural mechanisms that underpin friendships and make them possible - and just how complicated the business of making and keeping friends actually is. Mixing insights from scientific research with first person experiences and culture, Friends explores and integrates knowledge from disciplines ranging from psychology and anthropology to neuroscience and genetics in a single magical weave that allows us to peer into the incredible complexity of the social world in which we are all so deeply embedded. Working at the coalface of the subject at both research and personal levels, Robin Dunbar has written the definitive book on how and why we are friends.

Jillian Lawton and Lesley Adamski. Two girls from very different backgrounds. Jillian is the only child of wealthy parents, while Lesley's from a working-class family. They become best friends in the turbulent '60s, but their circumstances, their choices—and their mistakes—take them in virtually opposite directions. Lesley stays in their Washington State hometown. She gets pregnant and marries young, living a life defined by the demands of small children, not enough money—never enough money—and an unfaithful husband. Jill lives those years in a completely different way: on a college campus shaken by the Vietnam War, and then as an idealistic young lawyer in New York City. But they always remain friends. Through the years and across the miles, through marriage, children, divorce and widowhood, Jill and Lesley confide everything to each other—every grief and every joy. Because the quality of a friendship is the quality of a life.
