Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Journalist Sandmaier draws on personal experience and numerous case studies to analyze the dynamics of adult sibling relationships.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal

Next to parents, it is siblings who most influence the development of one's identity and personality. For this book, Sandmaier, a journalist and author of The Invisible Alcoholics ( LJ 1/15/80), interviewed 80 adult brothers and sisters in order to delve into their complicated and changeable relationships. Using their narratives to illustrate her points, Sandmaier explores adult sibling relationships and the positive and negative influences they have on our lives. She offers advice on trying to understand difficult relations and how to reconnect with emotionally distant siblings. This well-written book is recommended for public libraries.

Format: Paperback
This is the only book of it's kind: a book that explores the continuing impact our siblings have on us. Not just birth order, not just rivalry, but the love, the loss, the lessons. It is a wonderful exploration of how these relationships have shaped our lives and how our siblings remain active in our psyche, whether they are physically present in our lives or not. I highly recommend it
