4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dan Jones on 8 May 2000
Format: Paperback
This is a short book which explores twin research, the nature of twins, and what the study of twins can tell us about ourselves. The appalling experiments conducted by the Nazi Dr Josef Mengele described by Wright remain in the mind long after the book is finished, but the book as a whole is neither depressing nor horrific; rather, it is a level-headed look at what twin research, particularly behavioural genetics, can tell us about personality development. Some readers may be suprised at the extent to which our genetic make-up can shape aspects of our personality and intelligence, and indeed one of the most fascinating themes to emerge from the book is that not only are twins reared apart very similar, they are no less similar than twins reared together. This suggests that the shared environment of individuals does little to shape their personalities. Read this book for a refreshing view of the sometimes stale nature/nurture debate, and discover how your nature can mould your nurture.
