NATURE VS. NURTURE...
Reviewed in the United States on January 15, 2020
This is a book about twins, primarily identical twins. It is focused on the research done as to whether it is nature or nurture that controls in the case of identical twins. It runs the gamut of information and research available. Even Mengele's experiments on twins at Auschwitz figure in the discussion, as do the now discredited practices with respect to the adoption of twins carried out by Louise Wise Services, an adoption agency in New York City.
The book is well-written and interesting for those with an interest in the subject matter. Some of the stories of the research subjects are fascinating and give one pause. It most definitely provides much food for thought on the issue of nature vs. nurture. The author manages to makes complex issues eminently readable. Those with an interest in twins should find this book to be a compelling read on the subject.
