Danny Wallace is about to turn thirty and his life has become a cliché. Recently married and living in a smart new area of town, he's swapped pints for lattes and had even contemplated buying coasters. Something wasn't right - he was feeling way too grown-up. Until - Danny finds an old address book containing just twelve names. His best mates as a kid. Where are they now? Who are they now? And how are they coping with this scary concept of being grown-up? And so begins a journey from A-Z, tracking down and meeting his old gang. He travels from Berlin to Tokyo, from Sydney to LA. He even goes to Loughborough. He meets Fijian chiefs. German rappers. Some ninjas. And a carvery manager who's managed to solve time travel. But how will they respond to a man they haven't seen in twenty years, turning up and asking if they're coming out to play? Friends Like These is the story of what can happen when you track down your past, and of where the friendships you thought you'd outgrown can take you today...… (mer)

I needed cheering up and wanted an easy going happy go lucky book.
Danny Wallace who is a minor TV celebrity in the UK is approaching his 30th birthday he decides to contact all his main friends from his childhood.
He does well and gets to meet up with 11 of them, this book takes him to USA, Australia, Japan, Germany and various parts of the UK.
A happy easy to read story. I think it should have had more photos though. ( )

Although it made me teary-eyed at times (mainly because I've been mourning my youth and have been reconnecting with my past lately -- however, I'm much older than Mr. Wallace!), I found Yes Man to be much funnier. Plus, a lot of times while reading, I would think, "what is the purpose of this part he's writing about?"

There is a lot he could have cut from this book, as at times it was slow-going, however, there were some funny moments too. But not as funny as Yes Man. I was disappointed in that aspect, as I was expecting more of a funny read. Still, it would make for good conversation for a book club. After this though, I'm just a tad leery of reading any more of his books.

One other thought I kept having was how he could afford all that travel! What an understanding and supportive wife he has! ( )

When I grow up, I want to be like Danny Wallace! Because here is a man who has carved out a career for himself still doing all the things you might drunkenly discuss and laugh about whilst in the pub, but would then never actually do when you came to your senses the morning after.

But take a look at Danny Wallace’s back-catalogue of books and you see that not only is he the man that still carries out these immature boy tasks, but he has wrote a whole bunch of books on them. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised, he is the Yes Man after all...
