Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do, by Jennifer Eberhard

This book was featured on the Greater Good Magazine (Berkley) "Our Favorite Books of 2019":

Jennifer Eberhardt’s cutting-edge research on bias is not only fascinating but also important for its direct, real-world applications. Her book explains how biases arise, why they can be so insidious, and how we can use this understanding to combat knee-jerk reactions to difference—racial or otherwise.

To illustrate her points, Eberhardt easily weaves together laboratory science with stories from her life and her work. Her research has exposed how bias affects policing, leading police departments to institute new practices aimed at de-escalating officer reactions to stressful, ambiguous situations. This has helped to save lives—of police officers and suspected criminals. With clarity and compassion, she shines a light on how understanding bias can help us make better personal choices and public policies in service of a safer and fairer world for everyone.
