    Default Triple Package book by a couple, both Yale law professors

    Chinese-American Amy Chua and her Jewish-American husband Jed Rubenfeld, both Yale law professors wrote the book.

    Briefly, they say some people, Jews & especially 1st & 2nd generation Asian Americans do well in USA and have 3 common factors:

    • a sense of being exceptional

    • a sense of insecurity

    • discipline and willingness to defer immediate gratification

    I find that after Singapore got kicked out of Malaysia in 1965, these were exactly the features of the general Singapore population that made Singapore what it is today. Turned a bad situation around.

    The reviewers criticised it. Some were negative reviews.
