This book outlined the fact that we can't rely on inferences, stereotypes and guesses to understand people. The truth lies in personal and meaningful contact and asking open-minded questions.

An OK read. Interesting psychological research results. The Asian bigotry study of the western United States done mid last century is interesting. The observation that individuals when confronted with a bias respond differently then when queried how they would respond hypothetically. I found this extremely insightful since I have never accepted the oft drummed notion that our country is a bastion of bigoted people. There certainly are specific examples but extremely small. The long repeated prattle that my country is a racist nation is a complete lie! Taken individually the people have a strong ethical fiber. The agenda driven people that have for decades attempted to inject the racist meme into our collective consciousness are delusional. It has worked to divide not unite. It is plain that this narrow minded campaign degrades the depth and greatness of human spirit.
