The sibling effect : what the bonds among brothers and sisters reveal about us by Jeffrey Kluger ( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work explores what scientists and researchers are discovering about sibling bonds, the longest-lasting relationships we have in our lives. Nobody affects us as deeply as our brothers and sisters, not parents, not children, not friends. From the time we, and they, are born, our siblings are our collaborators and co-conspirators, our role models and cautionary tales. They teach us how to resolve conflicts and how not to, how to conduct friendships and when to walk away. Our siblings are the only people we know who truly qualify as partners for life. In this book, the author, a science writer explores the complex world of siblings in a way that is equal parts science, psychology, sociology, and memoir. Based heavily on new and emerging research, the book examines birth order, twin studies, genetic encoding of behavioral traits, emotional disorders and their effects on, and effects from, sibling relationships, and much more. -- From publisher description

Simplexity : the simple rules of a complex world by Jeffrey Kluger ( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In recent years, studies in fields such as economics, genetics, stock-market analysis and child development have hit on a new theory - 'Simplexity'. To put it simply, simple things can be more complicated than they seem, and complex things more simple. The evidence is before our eyes: in your elaborate network of household plumbing actually run on a very basic mechanism, or the crystal paperweight on your desk, spectacular in its complexity." "As Simplexity moves from the research lab into popular consciousness it will challenge our models for modern living. You'll never unknowingly whack the TV again, and you'll understand just how much it means to smile at your child. Popular science journalist Jeffrey Kluger translates cutting-edge theory into a history of everything. Simplexity is a reassessment of the building blocks of life and how they affect us all."--BOOK JACKET
