About the book:

Twins fascinate us, whether it's their identical looks, their uncannily similar behaviors, or their help in answering the nature versus nurture debate. As public interest in twins and multiple births steadily increases, the amount of in-depth information available on such topics has not kept up. In Entwined Lives, preeminent twins researcher Dr. Nancy Segal provides a groundbreaking study of all aspects of twin life, capturing both the scientific flavor of twin research and the unique experiences associated with development as a twin. This insightful and comprehensive book brings together an array of topics including twins separated at birth, unrelated children reared together at birth (pseudo-twins), the loss of a twin, new fertility treatments and their consequences, twins in sports, twins in the courtroom, even twins in the animal kingdom. Packed with scientific findings and anecdotes, Entwined Lives is a definitive guide for twins, their families, and anyone curious to know more about this phenomenon.
