Shares tales of the authors' childhood and rise to fame, from their years modeling and acting to their first house purchase at the age of eighteen and their rise to become the hosts of "Property Brothers" and other popular HGTV shows. "For their millions of fans around the world, identical twins Jonathan and Drew Scott are masters of the impossible--finding and transforming ordinary houses into stunning dream homes as HGTV's megastar Property Brothers. 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. Raised on a Vancouver horse ranch by their Scottish father and Canadian mother, the brothers always had their eyes on a future as entertainers ... but never expected it to happen with a tool belt and real estate license. They bought and renovated their first home together at age 18, and discovered a knack for real estate as well as an eye for design. But flipping houses was just a way to fund their true passions---and a guaranteed fallback career just in case. 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. This book holds nothing back. It's an uncensored look at the highs and lows that shaped two of televisions biggest stars. Luckily for us as well as them, though, there was still that fallback plan ... This is their story."--Jacket.
