The Triple Package: What Really Determines Success

 
9781408852293: The Triple Package: What Really Determines Success

Why do Jews win so many Nobel Prizes and Pulitzer Prizes?

Why are Mormons running the business and finance sectors?

Why do the children of even impoverished and poorly educated Chinese immigrants excel so remarkably at school?

It may be taboo to say it, but some cultural groups starkly outperform others. The bestselling husband and wife team Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, and Jed Rubenfeld, author of The Interpretation of Murder, explain, and in doing so, reveal the three essential components of success.

Drawing on groundbreaking original research and startling statistics, The Triple Package explodes the myth of innate group differences and examines three qualities that propel certain cultural groups to disproportionate achievement: 1) a superiority complex; 2) insecurity; and 3) impulse control. Amy Chua and Jed Rubenfeld also delve into the dark underside of the Triple Package, as the same traits that boost success can carry deep pathologies which, when taken to the extreme, can have toxic effects.

Provocative, probing and profound, The Triple Package offers a new way to look at success - its hidden spurs, its inner dynamics and its costs. But ultimately, it shows that when properly understood and harnessed, the Triple Package can put anyone on their chosen path to success.

Review:

The Triple Package is backed up with reams of research and qualifications. They tiptoe mirthlessly over cultural egg shells yet still manage to stir up controversy (Will Pavia The Times)

Chua and Rubenfeld's explosive new meditation on success, The Triple Package, has already begun to enrage people, even those who, by their own admission, haven't read it but have simply heard about how shocking it is (Katie Roiphe Financial Times)

The book is not racist - it is well-written; seductive ( Independent)

One of the most controversial books of recent years ... the authors are to be commended for dealing with a controversial subject, and for revealing some deep truths. It deserves a wide audience (Matthew Syed The Times, Book of the Week)

A lot to find interesting ... They draw on eye-opening studies of the influence of stereotypes and expectations on various ethnic and cultural groups ... The authors' willingness to pursue an intellectual inquiry that others wouldn't is bracing (Emma Brockes Guardian)

Provocative ... If you care at all about the social pressures underpinning success and failure, or relish fresh perspectives on how societies really work, you will want to read this (Jenni Russell Sunday Times)

The authors have already been accused of racism, mostly by people who haven't read the book ... Powerful, passionate and very entertaining (Allison Pearson Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

A New York Times bestseller. Exploding the conventional wisdom of success, The Triple Package is an eye-opening examination of how three cultural traits enable some groups to outperform others
