Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Tony Gillam: '... the subject matter has broad appeal - I would read it out of interest as a sibling myself, as a parent of two siblings and as a practitioner of family therapy. If written and presented in a reasonably accessible style, the proposed book has the potential for a wider general readership."

Eia Asen: "very worthwhile book to publish ... there is relatively little written in this field from a social science perspective. I like the contrast between the 'accepted' wisdom of parents and professionals with the siblings' own narratives. This could be helpful for a whole range of people - professionals, parents, siblings, even social scientists!"
