Format: Paperback
I was disappointed with this book, it doesn't really provide much useful advice on how to raise twins. I expected more advice on how to deal with difficult or unique-to-twins situations (sibling rivalry, competition, how to best divide parents' time and attention between the twins, discipline, etc). Instead the book is more about the author's own experience,which would be ok if it was actually useful, but she tries to stay neutral and too politically correct most of the time. I struggled to get any practical advice, and actually didn't even finish reading it because it was too boring and unfortunately mostly useless. It's not "Everything you should know.." but rather "Everything you already know"...

Format: Paperback
book was disappointing with only small sections per age group - which was my fear. The book didn't tell me anything new that would assist in taming my 19 month old twins. Written by an american who felt necessary to explain 'gag' in brackets... very annoying. Would not recommend, but i also have toddler taming which is much better but thin on twins info.

Looking for More 14 Sept. 2006
By L. Buonopane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was so excited to get this book and when I got to the end I was still waiting for the tricks and advise to the many issues I am having with my 21 month old twins. The author has some good stories and thoughts that pertained to her situations. I didn't seem to find the answers or comments to any problems I was having. I wish there was more info on the problem stages instead of a little info on every stage. I had to stop reading after about a third through the book because I didn't need info on age 5 + yet. I should have gotten a book about toddler issues and then later in life, when needed, buy a book on preteens etc.

The book was a good read but not what I was looking for. Try "Ready or not there we go" by Elizabeth Lyons MUCH better for toddler twins!!!!

Disappointing... Very elementary advice 29 Jun. 2007
By mom23boys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I saw the title of this book I was thrilled -- it was exactly what I was looking for! But I was very disappointed when I began reading it. I hoped the book would get better with each chapter but it only got worse... The chapters based on age are very limited and short. It was so basic and boring that I was shocked this book even got published. It explains many "no-brainer" to parents of twins. An example is that it takes the time to explain that fraternal twins were created with two eggs and identical twins with one egg. I'm guessing the majority of twin parents already knew that...

I would love to find a book that provides tips in raising twins after the infant stage -- but this book is NOT it.

Looking for more specific hands-on ideas 25 April 2006
By Angela Bedell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just got this book (my twins turn 1 in a few days) and eagerly read through the first several chapters. It was an entertaing, fun read, but I was a little dissapointed. I was just hoping for more tricks, ideas, and hands-on suggestions. Perhaps it will be more useful when my twins are older.
