On the negative side, from my own experience and the twins parents we know there would appear to be quite a gulf between the Italian and British parents attitude towards twins. This may may make this book of less interest to the British reader. The book is probably more useful to the medical professional rather than a parent, for whom the Miriam Stoppard books or the like may be of more use.
Overall, though, it is worth a read and certainly gives you plenty details about the makeup and genetics of twins as well as showing several examples of how not to treat your twins.
I am expecting twins and needed as much info as an expectant parent as I could get yet this was TOO much. Extremely well researched and the pictures were facinating, however, it is not what I would consider a parents guide. It is more suited for the medical student and professionals working with and studying twins and multiple birth. Most pre-natal and post-natal studies were done in Milan. I am sure there are many similarities however it would have helped if it had been based in the UK.
The book was written in 2002 so extremely in tune with current times however I never really got the impression it was written with me (a parent) in mind. Well researched (the bibliography is 29 pages long!) However, as a parent I didn't need to know the basis around the scientific study I just needed to know about best practice, the highs and lows of twin pregnancy and parenting, methods and procedures with regard to the labour and how to be a good parent, managing breast feeding and the dual demands of twin boys. An expensive buy for a parent, good value as a reference guide for a profecssional.
