Twins: A Celebration by Ruth Sandweiss

Spread the love

Stars: ****

It was refreshing to read a book about twins that wasn’t all research and statistics. This book tells a short story about the lives of twins that are either famous or have accomplished something extraordinary or stick out in some other way. Notables are Muhammad Ali’s twin daughter, the Hennessy’s, Tamera and Tia (Sister Sister show), Mario Andretti and his twin Aldo and Jane Seymour’s twin boys. Also the story of the Jim Twins (in every book about twins) and the famous Hensel conjoined twins. Very interesting reading, and I agree it’s a good coffee table book. I do think they should have more boy-girl and other fraternal twins sets represented though.
