Why First-Borns Rule the World and Last-Borns Want to Change it




There are many factors affecting a child’s personality and the adult they become, yet the least understood but most emphatic influence on personality is birth order.

There are many factors affecting a child’s personality and the adult they become, yet the least understood but most emphatic influence on personality is birth order.

Why is it that children in a family can share the same gene pool, a similar socio-economic environment and experience similar parenting styles yet have fundamentally different personalities, interests and even different careers as adults? Birth order! The implications for parents, teachers and adults involved with children are many.

This book also provides answers to all your questions about the personality and behaviour of your colleagues, life partner, friends and siblings. And perhaps explains some of your own ambitions and quirks. Addressing multiple births, special-needs children, genetic engineering, blended families, gender balance, single children and birth-order balance in the workplace, parenting expert and father of three Michael Grose challenges parents to raise each child differently according to his or her birth order.
