I gave this book only four stars becuase although great reading several of the cases they wrote about didn't have ANY pictures as promised and I'm a big "picture is worth a thousand words" person. They only highlighted pictures of two stories and yet the book tells of several twin cases possibly 8 [can't remember now-sorry]. I found it VERY enlightening and shocking at the same time especially the twin mothers who tried to kill their children--total shock. A great read just needed more pictures of the actual twins involved in the book.

Very interesting read. One has to wonder if it is really nature or nurture that prevails. Is it really in our DNA to be evil?

There are many studies involving the separation of twins at birth where they grow up to live astonishingly different lives. However there are true cases where, if one twin turns out "bad", the other will follow them down the same destructive path. This book is a compilation of twins committing evil acts against others or each other as jealousy and anger spark seemingly from the womb. I have to say that I enjoyed this book as I had never heard of any of these cases, so I give the book A+!
