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
Why do Jews win so many Nobel Prizes and Pulitzer Prizes?
Why are Mormons running the business and finance sectors?
What is it about Chinese immigrants that mean they earn such high incomes?
It might be taboo to say it, but some cultural groups consistently excel and achieve disproportionate levels of success. But why? Drawing on groundbreaking original research and startling statistics, The Triple Package uncovers the secret to their irrefutable success: i) a superiority complex, ii) insecurity, iii) impulse control. Examining these three components one by one, Amy Chua (bestselling author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother) and Jed Rubenfeld (bestselling author of The Interpretation of Murder) explore the motivational drive that leads to the rise - and sometimes fall - of cultural groups with lessons that we can all learn.
But the Triple Package has a dark underside too. Each of its elements carries distinctive pathologies; when taken to an extreme, they can have truly toxic effects. Should everyone strive for the Triple Package?
Provocative and probing, The Triple Package will completely transform the way we think about success.
