    One of the best twins books I've read. I have always been looking for a book that explains a lot of the psychology between twins interactions and how you can gently help them become distinct individuals. I love that the author recognizes that having twins is a very different experience than having singletons. Not harder...just different. There was a lot of interesting information in here that helped me understand my children and their behavior so much better. I hope that I can take this knowledg One of the best twins books I've read.

    Adapted from a review at twinpanic.com. It has a lot of good information. And yet... I find enough about this book off-putting that I can't give it a whole-hearted recommendation. For example, the author (who refers to herself in the first person singular, even though there are two listed on the cover) rejects the terms "identical twin" and "fraternal twin". Why? Well, "identical twins" aren't completely identical, and "fraternal twins" aren't necessarily brothers. Accurate, but tedious. Don't ge Adapted from a review at twinpanic.com. It has a lot of good information. And yet... I find enough about this book off-putting that I can't give it a whole-hearted recommendation. For example, the author (who refers to herself in the first person singular, even though there are two listed on the cover) rejects the terms "identical twin" and "fraternal twin". Why? Well, "identical twins" aren't completely identical, and "fraternal twins" aren't necessarily brothers. Accurate, but tedious. Don't get me wrong -- I like the terms "monozygotic" and "dizygotic" as much as the next parent, but there's no need to get strident about it. Other annoyances -- use of the term "co-twin" instead of "twin" and frequent references to "Twin Services", an organization she runs. I know that organization is the source of much of the practical advice in the book, but it feels like an advertisement. I may be going out on a limb, but I found this part irritating: But it's awkward to refer to "twins and higher-order multiples" throughout the book, so we'll use the term twins to refer to all multiples. Why did I find this irritating? Because after that, there are repeated references to triplets sprinkled throughout the book. If you're going to go to the trouble of saying you'll call everybody twins, it's really jarring to read the triplet references. I'll think, "Do I really need to read this part?", "Shouldn't parents of triplets get their own books?", and "Twins don't seem so bad by comparison." Most memorable response to a stranger's question: this time the response comes from a twin himself. "If someone says, 'Are you twins?' I'll say, 'I am, but he's not.'" Parents of twins can adapt this to, "One of them is identical, and the other's fraternal, but I can never remember which is which." All in all, there's solid information contained in this book, if you can get past the style. I couldn't.

    I enjoyed this book. It had some good thoughts for me to consider as my twins get older. However, I didn't feel there was anything so earth-shattering that I couldn't have figured it out with common sense. I enjoyed this book.

    Since I will always take something free, I found two books at the library about twins. Not sure if it will be helpful or not, but hey, it was free!

    I really liked this book. I would totally tell anyone who is having twins to read it. It helps to calm some of the fears and answers a lot of questions.
