By Tom Shapcott
One in every 87 births produces a set of twins. 'They're so cute' but also 'Double trouble!' This book of interviews with Australian twins and their families covers all aspects of twinship including the ESP-style communication and intuitive bond twins frequently describe. Tom Shapcott is a twin himself, and he has talked with a range of twins of all ages to compile this warm and fascinating look at the ways in which twins find their path in life - both as an individual personality, and as part of an intimate bonding with their sibling. There are twins who have achieved recognition in their own right in sport, the arts, business and education, and occasionally we find twins who excel in the same field such as Steve and Mark Waugh, or the Hockeyroo twins.
