Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In Beyond Sibling Rivalry, family psychologist Goldenthal showed parents how to deal with feuding children. Here, he directs his well-founded advice at adult siblings, but he lacks focus. While he does address some sibling-specific issues in core chapters (e.g., arguing that one doesn't need to be nice to family members simply because one is "stuck" with them), most of the content is applicable to all relationships. For example, Goldenthal talks about the importance of watching for nonverbal cues and wisely choosing one's battles. The most compelling part of the book is an appendix-like chapter that lists ways for parents to reduce sibling conflict. Overall, most of what Goldenthal covers can be found in other books on relationships. An optional purchase for public libraries.

Even adult siblings sometimes can't break long-standing rivalries or anger. Instead of turning your back on the relationship, read this book, and turn a new leaf. The author gives practical communication tips that will free you from the past and allow you to look to a brighter future with your sibling. For anyone looking to improve his or her sibling relationship, don't miss this book.

Great guide for me, although I think that the author doesn't address my problem. I can't even begin to have a dialogue with my siblings because I am never allowed to speak. The discussion becomes a monologue, not a dialogue...very frustrating interactions with my siblings. The book mainly validated some of the observations/characteristics that I see with my family's dysfunctions, and would like to see change.

Makes me think of my relationship with my own siblings. Parents play a large part in how their children relate to each other. Healing is difficult but not impossible. You can accept your differences or remove yourself from the situation for your own sanity.

I've read several titles about dealing with unhappy sibling relationships.

This book is by far the best. It covers the range of the most situations in the difficult sibling spectrum and gives practical, compassionate advice on how to deal with your brother or sister.

After reading it, I felt I had a better perspective on my personal situation and the tools to handle future interactions.
