Overview

Explicit, conscious bias is easy to spot – the bigotry and racism that has made headlines more and more in recent years. And while many of us would deny that we share any bigoted qualities, decades of research in neuroscience and psychology show that we just aren't aware of it. That's why it's called unconscious bias.

Jennifer Eberhardt is a social psychologist and researcher at Stanford University who has trained law enforcement agencies and advised government panels on civil rights investigations. In this book, Eberhardt tackles the issue of implicit bias and how it affects the world around us.

Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudices That Shape Our Lives is an elegant foray into the research that reveals how implicit bias works, along with real-life stories of the impact those unconscious prejudices have.

"We all have ideas about race, even the most open-minded among us. Those ideas have the power to bias our perception, our attention, our memory, and our actions – all despite our conscious awareness or deliberate intentions."
