A New York Times Notable Book for 1998

Critical acclaim for Lawrence Wrights

A Rhone-Poulenc Science Prize Finalist

""This is a book about far more than twins: it is about what twins can tell us about ourselves.""--The New York Times

""With plenty of amazing stories about the similarities and differences of twins, Wright respectfully shows, too, how their special circumstance in life challenges our notions of individuality. A truly fascinating but sometimes spooky (Mengeles experiments with twins at Auschwitz figure among Wrights examples) study.""--American Library Association

""Like so much of Wrights work, this book is a pleasure to read. Because he writes so well, without pushing a particular point of view, he soon has you pondering questions you have tended to comfortably ignore.""--Austin American-Statesman

""Informative and entertaining . . . a provocative subject well considered by a talented journalist.""--Kirkus Reviews
