Born and raised in Paris and now 22, Naomi and Lisa are the least twinlike twins I've ever met.
Topics include: the special relationship twins share; the unusual language patterns of twins; what twins tell us about cooperation and competition; what losing a twin reveals about grieving; pseudo twins--unrelated siblings who are reared together; the role of fertility treatments in twin and "twinlike" conceptions; how conjoined twins view their coexistence; twins and clones; twins in the courtroom; twinning in the nonhuman animal kingdom; and facts and fallacies of being a twin.

But Bouchard's research subjects were self-selected (he advertised to find them) and interested in being twinlike. Some of them had also been reared together for several years before they were adopted into different families, therefore sharing at least an early environment.
