My copy is yellow-marked and underlined to the hilt and I'm only half-way through it. I'm pleased to learn many family gripes are the norm across the board and classic.
The Sibling Effect helps you comprehend your relationships with others as well as with siblings - invaluable reading.
Kluger uses his convincing talent to provide a very engaging book, charged with emotional stories, entrenched in the writer's own experience, which cannot become a generalization by psychologists. In their book "Sibling Relationships: Their Nature and Significance across the Lifespan," Michael Lamb and Brian Sutton-Smith, strongly support Kluger, articulating that sibling bonds often last an entire lifetime. Frank Sulloway, advocates also that birth order has strong and lasting influence on the major personality traits, however, critical psychologists argue against his theories. He argues that firstborns are more conscientious, more socially dominant, less agreeable, and more traditional to laterborns.
