Men don't often talk about their mates, yet these relationships are sometimes their most enduring. Jim Hopkins and Julie Riley have travelled the length of New Zealand, seeking out those unique and often unacknowledged friendships, to produce this great addition to the Blokes Library. They have interviewed well-known individuals such as Sean Fitzpatrick, Keith Quinn, Burton Shipley, Mike King and Dick Hubbard and their best friends. They have unearthed some interesting but lesser-known people, including members of Alf's Imperial Army, the Ian club (a collection of friends all called Ian - whether they like it or not), and a couple of guys who are building a hovercraft. Altogether some 50 friendships are featured - each different, and each equally fascinating.
