`Jennifer Eberhardt gives us the opportunity to talk about race in new ways, ultimately transforming our thinking about ourselves and the world we want to create.' Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow `Jennifer Eberhardt is one of the great thinkers and one of the great voices of our time.' Carol Dweck, author of Mindset `Groundbreaking... essential reading for anyone interested in how we become a more just society.' Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy Professor Jennifer Eberhardt is a Stanford Social Psychologist and one of the world's leading experts on racial bias. In Biased, she draws on groundbreaking research to demonstrate that even without explicit racism, our unconscious biases powerfully shape our behaviour leading to racial disparities in all sectors of society. In a global society of increased migration and social movement, Biased highlights the social problems that arise when different races meet, and demonstrates the stubbornly persistent role of racial bias in a world where economic and geographic realities are rapidly changing. Perhaps more importantly, Biased not only describes one of the most fundamental problems of our age, but puts forward solutions. Unconscious bias is a common human condition to be recognised and managed, not a sin to be punished. Only through understanding comes change.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jennifer Eberhardt's work is essential to helping us understand racial inequalities in our country and around the world. Her groundbreaking research and deep insight makes it possible for individuals and communities to face our deeply-rooted human biases with greater compassion and courage. We avoid talking about race for fear it will divide us, but avoidance inevitably leads us to repeat past mistakes and create conditions in which old wounds fester rather than heal. Eberhardt gives us the opportunity to talk about race in new ways, ultimately transforming our thinking about ourselves and the world we want to create." -- Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow
"Jennifer Eberhardt is one of the great thinkers and one of the great voices of our time. Everything she writes transforms the way people see things. Every talk she gives changes people's lives. There is nobody like her. She has unique insights into contemporary society and a unique ability to evoke images, emotions, and understandings that people will never forget. I believe her book will change the conversation on race in our society - and perhaps our society itself." -- Carol Dweck, author of Mindset
"Drawing on her pioneering research, Jennifer Eberhardt's new book offers a powerful exploration of how racial bias seeps into our classrooms, college campuses, police departments, and businesses. Bias is commonplace because it is built into human psychology. To overcome it, Eberhardt argues, we must understand not just how it works; we must also overcome the inequalities on which racial bias is built." -- Bruce Western, author of Punishment and Inequality in America
"In the next decade there is a chance to make unprecedented progress in confronting America's history of racial inequality which has created a society where racial bias remains one of the most challenging problems our nation faces. The hope for progress is greatly increased by Jennifer Eberhardt's groundbreaking new book on implicit bias. Biased presents the science of bias with rare insight and accessibility, but it is also a work with the power and craft to make us see why overcoming racial bias is so critical. Jennifer Eberhardt is one America's preeminent social psychologists and her book will be essential reading for anyone interested in how we become a more just society." -- Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy
