"Created with the help of self-advocates across British Columbia, 101 Ways to Make Friends . . .  is a practical, fun and inspired way to get started in the work of helping people to connect to meaningful and enduring relationships."  David Pitonyak

"I am writing to order two more copies as ours are already so well-read that they will soon by unusable.   Thanks for this book."

"...this little book is very timely.   Not only does it capture the essence and importance of friendship, but it provides concrete strategies for people with disabilities, their families, and people who provide support."  John Lord, Researcher and Author, Pathways to Inclusion: Building a New Story with People and their Communities.

"I feel I have now given out a dozen copies of your book and as none have come back because people fall in love with it I would like to order ten copies and also request that you create some ordering postcards so that I can give those away instead."  

"This is my book."  

"We so appreciate the great service in shipping our order so that we'd have books for our workshop.    Thanks so much!"


"Thank you for an excellent workshop.  It will help us on our uncharted journey to support my son."  

"Presented in an easy to understand format (with simple language)."

"[You] spread hopefulness in the universe; the question isn't whether the glass is half empty or half full, it is 'how do we fill up the glass?'"   

"The overwhelmingly positive evaluations are a testament to your hard work.   Thank you so much."

"Your session wasn't even finished and people were coming at the breaks to ask if you could come back next year."

"These people have been hiding their light under a bushel for too long!"
