From the Back Cover:

In Nature's Thumbprint, one of the country's foremost psychiatrists and his son, a writer, explore the impact of today's new genetic research on our understanding of human development and personality. Using original case studies of identical twins adopted in infancy and reared apart, this extraordinary book untangles the complex interaction between genetics and experience.

From Library Journal:

Psychoanalyst Peter Neubauer and his son, a free-lance writer, argue that the nature/nurture controversy in human behavioral development has too long favored the role of environment. They contend that newer research supports the conclusion that one's genes strongly influence personality and physiology. Our ability to respond and adapt to stress, for example, appears to have a strong genetic component. The authors do not totally dismiss the environmental influence, but view it and heredity as being interactive. This is not a rigorous survey of research (only two recent, major studies are cited), but the arguments are nevertheless enlightening and persuasive.
