This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Cain's Legacy: Liberating Siblings from a Lifetime of Rage, Shame, Secrecy, and Regret
by Jeanne Safer
Publication Date: January 3

A psychotherapist specializing in sibling relationships and author of the acclaimed book The Normal One—explores the various levels of inter-sibling woes. Incorporating case studies, interviews, and insights from her own patient psychoanalysis, Safer examines the lives of siblings whose relationships fall along a vast spectrum, including criminal exploitation and manipulation, obligatory civility, mutual resentment, and estrangement. Anyone with a sibling knows their influence follows us from home and personal relationships to cocktail parties and the boardroom; when that influence is malign, it can doom us to a lifetime of misery with our brothers or sisters. Taking a critical look at the most hard to define relationships, CAIN’S LEGACY is a prescriptive guide to fixing broken sibling relationships that deserve it and severing those that demand it.
