This review is from: The Triple Package: What Really Determines Success (Kindle Edition)
I think there is more at work than the triple package, so the conclusions are oversimplified, even if the triple package is of major importance. In particular, some cultures have esteem for education independent of the triple package, deriving from circumstances in the distant past, before people of those cultures immigrated to the USA. Hence, in the USA, esteem for education often may not be a dependent variable. I also think that Kid Culture is a major factor affecting an individual's entry onto the road to success. In the modern world remarkable aspects of culture are age-stratified rather than stratified by class, geography, religion or ethnic origin. Kid Culture may be very powerful, and may negate cultural features from those other sources.
