And while it discusses many academic studies, each one is presented in a context that makes them very intimate and impactful. It does not read like an overview of studies. It reads like a narrative of one person's journey through his lifetime. I would recommend it.
If you lead or aspire to lead any sort of organization in the 21st century, consider this book required reading.
Given the emphasis in this book on pre-exam treatments and institutional interventions (having test-takers identify their gender AFTER an Advanced Placement exam, for instance), I couldn't help wondering if there are techniques that individuals can use for themselves. Cognitive therapy, after all, works not the basis of individuals' changing their self-talk, abandoning counterproductive beliefs, etc. If an individual can learn to, for example, care less about what other people think or be less worried about social embarrassment, can stereotype threats be reduced? One finding mentioned in the book is that if a white person is prompted to view a social interaction with a black person as a learning experience, the white person is less likely to engage in avoidance behaviors that are based on fear of saying the wrong thing. What if the "treatment" isn't a prompt from an experimenter, but a deliberate change in thinking on the part of individuals faced with identity contingencies?
