Editorial Reviews


Jane Leder takes us on an eye-opening tour of the rich, confusing, and often painful world of siblings. . . She speaks with wisdom gleaned from her own attempts to better her relationships within her family, yet her voice is disciplined and informed by the best available knowledge and speculation of social scientists and clinicians. The result is a rich tapestry, allowing many possibilities for the reader to see his/her own life's sibling through a clearer lens. 

Co-author with Michael Kahn of The Sibling Bond and clinical psychologist and family therapist in Middletown, Connecticut.

To this day, I refer people to a Psychology Today article about siblings that you wrote 20-plus years ago.
Hara Estroff Marano
Editor at Large, Psychology Today

If you have a brother or sister you should read this book! Leder writes in a conversational style and explores sibling issues honestly and concisely.She covers everything from family position, being an only child, death of a sibling, family problems, such as chronic illness, connecting and reconnecting with siblings. 

A bibliography is the one thing missing from this book. Leder’s last line is worth remembering: With our siblings, we see a reflection of ourselves—why we are, how we are, and what we may hope to be
Harriet Hodgson, Health & Wellness Writer

From the Author

I continue to be fascinated by the sibling connection and how it changes over the years. Since writing Brothers&Sisters some 25 years ago, my connections with my own two siblings have twisted and turned.  I wanted to talk to other siblings to see how their sibling connections have shaped their lives and what they've learned about themselves, their relationships, and the choices they've made.  What I discovered once again is that the sibling connection is powerful and never static.  Whether we are close to our siblings or distant, they remain our brothers and sisters. Siblings are life's longest-lasting relationship.
