As far as text books go, its set up nicely. First few chapters are a little boring but there is a lot of information.

Her agenda is [well you decide]

Today's discussion of our brainwashing concerns a title from a fancy college's Child Psychology class called "The Developing Person" by Kathleen Stassen Berger.

The race-ratio of pictures is 1 white to three nonwhites.
If you see a smiling non-white, then they are just raising their child well. If you see a smiling white, watch out!
For example, smiling blacks p. 44 and 51, black fathers being excellent fathers.
Uh-oh, whites! p. 10 smiling whites, one has a disease. p.78 one of the whites is retarded. pp86 and 87 whites are schizophrenic and abort their retarded young.
Blacks are beautiful and only give birth to healthy young pp92, 103...

p. 71 Asian twins are smiling and adorable. White twins look angry, sad and weird.

Hmmm...a gorgeous white mother and baby, one of the prettiest pics in the book, what is the deal? OH! They say women are waiting to give birth until age 40. Get it?

Also, a large number of photos of whites stress that these are Swedish or French people, not USA.

In the genetic section there are four pictures of kids with Down syndrome. One with fetal alcohol. Which race? Of course they are all white.
You read the chapter and are convinced blacks can't get trisomy 21. The one non-white they show has the genetic defect that she is SHY.

The book is written extremely well and is a easy read. It also has many good small notes on the side to challenge the reader.
