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.

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.

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.

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.
thoughtfully written to provide logical conclusions the reader can use to perceive the world differently.
The research was presented in a very clear way and the subject matter is relevant to anyone and everyone who does not live in a bubble.
