Summary:If you're a fan of Jonathan and Drew's hit shows -- Property Brothers, Brother vs. Brother, Property Brothers at Home, and Buying and Selling -- you probably think you know the guys pretty well. But in true Scott brother form, it's what you find once you knock the walls down that will surprise you most: The raw vulnerability of two driven brothers, each robbed of his fondest dream before fate, perseverance, and the power of two rebuilt something even better. Drew was a gifted athlete with the vertical leap of an NBA player and ambitions to play professional basketball, until a devastating series of injuries dashed his hoop dreams and refocused him on a career in film. Jonathan was an award-winning magician whose design and carpentry skills were honed building grand illusions for the stage show he planned to take on tour. Like his brother, he saw the future he envisioned for himself slip away when catastrophe struck. But the cowboy code their parents instilled in them inspired the brothers to work that much harder and dream that much bigger. When someone told them they couldn't do something, their father urged them to find not one, but five ways to make it happen. Giving up wasn't an option, and their often-hilarious competitive streaks led to the epiphany that the power of two was sweeter than the failure of one.

A New York Times bestseller!

Jonathan and Drew Scott, known for their wildly popular HGTV shows including Property Brothers and Brother vs Brother , follow up their New York Times bestseller, Dream Home , with a highly anticipated memoir.

Complete with hilarious behind-the-scenes stories from set, Jonathan and Drew discuss how their family and upbringing have led to their success in life. Throughout, the brothers keep fans laughing with the clever--and sometimes zany--sibling banter for which they're known best.
