Highly recommended for women who have or are sisters.
on March 3, 2016
As the eldest of seven sisters, this book resonated with my own childhood and adult experiences. The author offers a summary of behavior patterns gleaned from extensive interviews with hundreds of female siblings, including twins and multi-generational groups. The conclusions the author draws about how female birth order shapes the way sisters relate, family dynamics, and the impact on life choices are well drawn and fascinating. The author offers excellent insights into how sisters relate; however, it is not a do-it-yourself manual to mend sibling relationships. It offers plenty of insight but does not attempt to provide solutions to problems. I wish the author had enlightened us more on the diversity of the group she interviewed because it left me wondering how that might influence the outcome of her interviews. If you have or are a sister, read this book.
