The Anatomy of Prejudices

Young-Bruehl, Elisabeth
Harvard Univ. 1998 Dewey Dec. 303

Surveying the study of prejudice since World War II, Young-Bruehl finds a history riddled with assumptions, generalizations, and cliches. The Anatomy of Prejudices proposes a fresh start, and suggests an approach that distinguishes between different types of prejudices, the people who hold them, the social and political settings that promote them, and the human needs they fulfill. Young-Bruehl draws on theoretical and clinical, historical, and empirical literatures to show us prejudices from a variety of angles: there are those that help protect a group’s identity (ethnocentrisms) and those that project a group identity (ideologies of desire); there are prejudices as socioeconomic phenomena, attitudes toward governments, products of historical periods, social mechanisms of defense, sexual fantasy structures, and puberty rites.

Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges

Cuddy, Amy
Little, Brown

Have you ever left a nerve-racking challenge and immediately wished for a do over? Maybe after a job interview, a performance, or a difficult conversation? The very moments that require us to be genuine and commanding can instead cause us to feel phony and powerless. Too often we approach our lives’ biggest hurdles with dread, execute them with anxiety, and leave them with regret. By accessing our personal power, we can achieve “presence,” the state in which we stop worrying about the impression we’re making on others and instead adjust the impression we’ve been making on ourselves.

Dweck explains why it’s not just our abilities and talent that bring us success-but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn’t foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success.

The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick)

Godin, Seth
Penguin 2007

The old saying is wrong—winners do quit, and quitters do win.

If you can become number one in your niche, you’ll get more than your fair share of profits, glory, and long-term security.
