Reviews

Sisters can have a lasting and powerful impact on our lives. Tannen (linguistics, Georgetown Univ.; You're Wearing THAT?) examines every aspect of this sibling relationship: competition and rivalry, the effects of aging, "sisterspeak" (a language that can be understood between sisters owing to their close relationship), and the impact of alignment. Verdict Tannen does a good job of exploring and explaining the dynamics between sisters. Although this is not a self-help title, readers will enjoy and benefit from the author's treatment of sisters and the role they can and do play in one's life.

"Siblings will jump on this book to read about pigeonholing . . . power dynamics . . . and the coded messages, fond or furious, that only the person who knows you best will understand."
--O: The Oprah Magazine
"If you have a sister, you will probably recognize every detail and laugh or cry."
--The Daily Beast "Tannen's very talented ear allows her to see inside our most intense relationships using the windows of our words."
--Baltimore Sun

"Love/hate doesn't begin to describe the elation and heartbreak, the humor and perplexed contradictions revealed in this delightful book when sisters speak of and to each other."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
