Claude M. Steele, who has been called "one of the few great social psychologists," offers a vivid first-person account of the research that supports his groundbreaking conclusions on stereotypes and identity. He sheds new light on American social phenomena from racial and gender gaps in test scores to the belief in the superior athletic prowess of black men, and lays out a plan for mitigating these "stereotype threats" and reshaping American identities.

Really in depth and excellent explanation of how destructive stereotypes are to all of us. If you wonder why so many women under-perform in mathematics, or people of color under-perform in school, there are some truths in this book - namely that stereotypes affect us psychologically more than we think they do.
