I have several hundred audio books in a wide range of areas in my Library and I have enjoyed almost every one of them. I am a certified soft touch as a listener and reviewer. So here is the bad news. This is the only book out of the hundreds that I disliked enough not to finish. I should have been the target audience for this book (seven kids in the family). Instead I found the book to be simplistic, mostly wrong and excruciatingly dull.

It's not horrible, but if you think you're going to get a sort-of Malcolm Gladwell take on siblings, you're going to be disappointed (as I was). Kluger spends too much time on personal anecdotes, and he isn't a good enough writer to mine and deliver the most interesting stuff from the science and studies he discusses. Also, the narrator's voice sounds too much like a haughty game show announcer.
