How does this book change the way one should think about SPD?

The main goal of the review is to critically evaluate the author’s story in the context of theories and
evidence related to stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination. In other words, the review must integrate
book examples with the Sterotyping, prejudice, and discrmination literature. How do book examples highlight SPD theories and evidence?
On the other hand, how might book examples oppose SPD theories and evidence? How does the book
contribute (or not) to the research on SPD? Is the story anecdotal evidence of SPD theories? Students
must integrate several examples under an overarching theme or two. In other words, the review should
not read like a grocery list of examples; instead, the examples should flow and always be tied to the

main theme(s). Points to consider:
Give clear examples from the book.
Cite with accuracy the SPD theories and evidence, and be sure to reference the researchers (use
APA format).
An assessment of the strong points as well as the shortcomings of the book.
How does this book change the way one should think about SPD?

Book reviews should be between 4-5 double-spaced pages in length (not including references and any
other attachments). The key to writing a good book review is a students ability to write concisely i.e.,
do not write more, write succinctly. Find creative ways to communicate the critical evaluations of the
book in a brief paper. Do not summarize the content of the book, except when you cite examples from the
book. The challenge will be to do as much of this as possible and yet not let it interfere with the restricted
length of the review. In other words, find creative ways to give examples from the book in a limited
space. Avoid quotations or be kept to a minimum, and should rarely exceed one sentence.
