A provocative and
surprising exploration of the longest sustained relationships we have in life—those
we have with our siblings
Nobody affects us as deeply as our brothers and sisters. Our
siblings are our collaborators and co-conspirators, our role models and
cautionary tales. They teach us how to resolve conflicts and how not to, how to
conduct friendships and when to walk away. Our siblings are the only people we
know who truly qualify as partners for life.
In this perceptive and groundbreaking book, Jeffrey Kluger
explores the complex world of siblings in equal parts science, psychology,
sociology, and memoir. Based on cutting-edge research, he examines birth order,
twins, genetic encoding of behavioral traits, emotional disorders and their
effects on sibling relationships, and much more. With his signature insight and
humor, Kluger takes science’s provocative new ideas about the subject and
transforms them into smart, accessible insights that will help everyone
understand the importance of siblings in our lives. Download and start listening now!
