Testimonials & Reviews

As an Executive in Human Resources, I find most of my professional energy spent on educating others about the nuances of meaningful relationship building. Most often, the primary impediment is a lack of self-awareness, but Heather Dugan has boiled that conundrum down in a way that anyone can understand and immediately begin to act upon. Plain and simple, this is a good read on both a personal and professional level for men and women alike.

Heather Dugan brings a rare combination of insight, passion, life experiences and exceptional communication skills to The Friendship Upgrade. This book will prove to be an excellent resource, not only for individuals hungry for meaningful connections but also for any organization that claims to care about people and the health and productivity of its workforce.

Great book. Well written, entertaining. As a recently single guy navigating the dating scene, it's interesting/informative to hear perspectives from the other side of the table. Ms. Dugan shares many of her own experiences and those of friends and acquaintances. Pulls back the curtain a bit. If you pay attention and listen, she just might help you avoid some of the common traps and mistakes and maybe even figure out how enjoy the process and actually recognizing the person who is right for you when they come along.
