A tremendously challenging and thought-provoking book on the biases most of us hold even if we're not consciously bigoted or prejudiced by any means.

Other than 2 questions, this is an excellent book. 1) There seemed to be variables remaining in the way the "defining" questionnaire/quiz was set up. I did beat the questionnaire/quiz, without much effort at all. Maybe other people weren't paying attention? 2) They did not go into the effects of exposure on "us-them" distinctions; do they really not know why integrated schools (not merely desegregated) are so important? Historically the best way to sharpen the us-them line is to keep the 2 away from each other!

But it was a thought-provoking book, and I guess that was their aim.
