    Introduction -- The triple package -- Who's successful in America? -- The superiority complex -- Insecurity -- Impulse control -- The underside of the triple package -- IQ, institutions, and upward mobility -- America.
    Summary: 
    It may be taboo to say, but some groups in America do better than others. Why do some groups rise? The Triple Package uncovers the secret to their success. A superiority complex, insecurity, impulse control--these are the elements of the Triple Package, the rare and potent cultural constellation that drives disproportionate group success. Americans are taught that everyone is equal, that no group is superior to another; but all of America's most successful groups believe that they're exceptional, chosen, superior in some way. Americans are taught that self-esteem--feeling good about yourself--is the key to a successful life. In all of America's most successful groups, people tend to feel insecure, inadequate, that they have to prove themselves. The dark underside of the Triple Package has elements that carry distinctive pathologies; when taken to an extreme, they can have toxic effects. The Triple Package is like a ladder that should be climbed and then kicked away, drawing on its power but breaking free from its constraints.--Excerpted from publisher.
