“People matter! Every person has bias. Thus, bias matters. We must recognize that bias is a fact of life and that it must be addressed—within ourselves as well as with others. Authors Fuller, Murphy, and Chow have written a profound book that practically informs and educates while providing helpful tools to recognize and address bias. They show how to adjust our paradigms, setting us up for success—personally, professionally, and as a society.”

—Booklist, starred review
"The authors speak from experience and provide solid advice for improving how we work (and live) together. Will appeal to a broad readership, particularly managers looking to add to their leadership toolbox, but also anyone who wants to check in on and work through their own unconscious bias."
“Central to Fuller, Murphy and Chow’s fundamental thesis is the inescapable notion that overcoming our inherent biases will allow us (and our organizations) to perform at a much higher level…[The book] is exceptionally applications-oriented, with case studies, activities and various inventories/assessments that give the reader heightened insight into their attitudes and behaviors – and how to modify both for personal enrichment and organizational efficacy…Highly recommended."
—The Bowling Green Daily News
"A thoroughly important book for leaders and readers of all stages in business. Unconscious bias is something we all have to contend with and...and the first step is awareness. This book will be important for years to come and will be a resource that many people will come to value, read, refer back to, and assign to others in their organizations. Superb, thorough work!"
