Although Mr. Kluger referenced many studies, the book as a whole was more anecdotal than I expected. I was hoping for a factual study, but it was much more personal to Mr. Kluger and his family, and assorted random strangers who meant nothing to me. He seemed to use the studies that he referred to more to support his anecdotal evidence than vice versa. Check it out!

The Sibling Effect: What the Bonds Among Brothers and Sisters Reveal About Us Paperback – September 4, 2012 by Jeffrey Kluger (Author) Review
A broad perspective on families and birth order backed up with scientific data and personal, hilarious anecdotes. 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. -Read Reviews-
Interesting book, but I found the author went into more detail about his own family life. Great if you are similar to him, but not so great if you’re not. I would still recommend the book for anyone who wants to read it, but felt it could have been a bit more.
