QUESTIONS AND TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION
Nobody affects us as deeply as our brothers and sisters do—not our parents, not our children, not our friends. 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 groundbreaking book, renowned science writer Jeffrey Kluger explores—with insight and humor—the complex world of siblings in ways that are equal parts science, psychology, sociology, and memoir. Based heavily on new and emerging research, The Sibling Effect examines birth order, twin studies, genetic encoding of behavioral traits, emotional disorders and their effects on—and effects from—sibling relationships, and much more.
