The development of how twins relate to each other and their single partners is explored through life stories and clinical examples in this telling study of twin interconnections. While the quality of a nurturing family life is crucial, Dr. Klein has found there are often issues with separation anxiety, loneliness, competition with each other, and finding friendships outside of twinship. When twin lives are entwined because of inadequate parenting and estrangement, twin loss is possible and traumatic, creating a crippling fear of expansiveness—an inability to be yourself. Therapists and twins seeking an understanding of twin relationships will find this clinically compelling book a valuable resource.

Being married to a twin and experiencing over 40 years of "them" this book shared the oddities and challenges of the relationship over time. I am glad to know I am not alone in my experiences with twins. My son has twins and they are raising them as individuals not as a self-identifying unit.
Growing up as a Twin can be both a joyous and a complicated issue.2017年6月15日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Growing up as a Twin can be both a joyous and a complicated issue. Dr. Klein very clearly describes the advantages and disadvantages of being a twin. She explains the issues that twins encounter often due to improper parenting or more likely the misunderstanding that singletons have about twins relationships. As a fraternal twin who has been completely estranged from his twin for over 36 years I can say that Dr. Klein completely understands how complex an issue being a twin is. I would suggest that everyone who has a twin in their life, parents, teachers, therapists and others, read Dr. Klein's books to better understand the complex relationshipbetween twins.

A deeply moving and insightful book - a powerful book! It’s essential reading for any twin who is troubled by a dysfunctional relationship with his/her twin. It contains valuable advice for responsible parents of twins who wish to raise well adjusted, independent children. And it should be required reading for therapists, because I can tell you that as a twin, therapy is ineffective with a therapist who doesn’t understand Dr. Klein’s research. I highly recommend it.

Twins who have experienced less than ideal relationships with their twin will find comfort and hope in Dr. Klein’s new book “Twin Dilemmas.” This book will make twins feel less alone and will allow them to open up to the idea that many twins live with less-than-ideal memories of being a twin. You will meet twins who are brave enough to share their stories and whom are healing through a therapeutic twin support group. This book is an essential tool for twins and anyone who knows and cares about a twin. Twin relationships are complicated. Dr. Klein has spent her entire career studying the complexities of twin relationships. She offers powerful yet practical suggestions to therapists, parents, and teachers in how to work with twins effectively.

Having read Dr Klein's book 'Alone in the Mirror' I immediately had to have this one. At first glance it appears to be very accessible and organised in such a way to enable the reader to explore in a focused fashion. Separation, estrangement, parenting, conflict, healing, and many other pertinent issues are thoroughly analysed. Dr Klein has put words to my feelings (as a twin) and there are so many 'light-bulb' moments and recognition. I know this book is going to help many people begin to understand just how hard it is for twins to function, particularly as they get into adulthood. The complex web and effect of polarisation on each twin as an individual is fully explored with the use of many stories which are fascinating. Dr Klein's exploration of patterns and types of relationship outcomes is a crucial study which brings hope to those who suffer without recognition in a world that idealises the twin relationship.
