A compelling read.

This is a great book. It's well written with compelling examples. I would recommend it for anyone searching for an easily accessible way to discuss implicit bias. For some it will be eye-opening. For others who already have some experience with these issues, the book is a good summary of the research literature.

Vital reading

Blindspot is a comprehensive survey of social science research on implicit bias, racism, and discrimination in the U.S. While it is written for white people to gently and convincingly teach them about the impact of racism, that is an important project, and anyone could use this book, especially for its coverage of the implicit psychological roots of bias.

Difficult to interpret.

This book does not translate well to the audio book format. It relies heavily upon printed supplemental material, which renders the point of an audiobook moot. it is well narrated, but is best left to the reader.

Interesting look into the mind

Interesting insight into the human mind. Only flaw was the authors lack of desire to ask why these blind spots occur. They went with the standard politically correct easy answer versus asking harder questions about biology and evolution.

Very enlightening.

Makes you reflect on your implicit biases and how they might be affecting your decisions to provide or withold help. You walk away having an increased self-awareness of how your choices might adversely affect others.
