Author Nancy Segal is Professor of Psychology of the Twin Studies center at CSU Fullerton: her professional career has been devoted to the study of identical and fraternal twins, and INDIVISIBLE BY TWO: LIVES OF EXTRAORDINARY TWINS reflects this long history, following up on her ENTWINED LIVES to reveal the lives of 10 sets of twins, one set of triplets and a set of quads. From twins raised apart and their remarkable connections to others who found their differences equally remarkable, INDIVISIBLE BY TWO provides some interesting insights on not only the psychology of twins, but the possibilities and problems inherent in artificial human cloning. From shared memories and experiences to shared reactions, this is packed with riveting case histories.
