The Pecking Order: Which Siblings Succeed and Why by Dalton Conley

Conley contends that there is greater differences in the economic realities of individual family members than between families. Think of the differences between Jimmy and Billy Carter, or a family where one is a banker and the other a bank robber. He says that birth order is not necessarily the deciding factor--that other things like divorce or parental death at the wrong time will be the tipping point. An easy to read book that makes it easy to say "It isn't MY fault".
