    Well, I am not really unbiased ;-) ...

    Although peppered with engaging personal anecdotal stories, ?The Person You Mean To Be,? by Dr. Dolly Chugh is, at its core, an evidence-based recipe book for getting over the psychological inertia that keeps you at rest, helping you move from ?thinking about how to be a better p...

    POW! This book hit me between the eyes, in the heart and in the gut. Dr. Chugh combines wit and wisdom to help all of us notice - and start to SEE - the myriad inequalities, oppression and imbalances people in our world experience. And then, with stories, hints, suggestions and questio...

    That feeling. When a bunch of fragmented, private thoughts and uncomfortable conversations come together and suddenly begin to make sense? that is this book. Dolly Chugh did an amazing job of combining stories, research data and her insight to help me see things in a different light....

    The Person You Mean to Be is an extraordinary book that helped me answer questions I?ve been grappling with for a long time. I am a true believer in equity, diversity and inclusion but have often found myself paralyzed by fear, discomfort and/or the sheer enormity of the problems fac...

    This should be required reading for anyone between the ages of 13 and 90. That?s not a joke. Every day, it seems like there?s an even more depressing story in the news. Racism. Sexism. Religious intolerance. Real people are being hurt. These are tough, uncomfortable topics, and as ...

    With all of the chaos in the world around us, especially with respect to issues of bias in race, gender and sexual orientation, Dolly Chugh elegantly sheds light on how we can and should get involved and be the people we mean to be. It is rich with references to social science research...

    Will be using as required or recommended reading when I next teach social psych or my skepticism & scientific thinking course. ...

    Professor Chugh writes early on that throughout the book ?science will guide us and stories will bring the science to life.? She delivers 100% on that promise, illustrating the best of the empirical literature with narratives of how it unfolds every day. That she manages to do so, ...

    Livro que explora como o nosso cérebro comporta face aos esteriótipos da sociedade como lgbt, minorities, men vs women. Faz-nos ver que, pelo facto de por vezes termos esses pensamentos, não nos faz más pessoas. No entanto alerta-nos para estes comportamentos comuns na nossa socied...

    I'm recommending this book to everyone I know! Accessible, informative, evidence-based, and with concrete advice on how to fight bias and deal with the facts that it can be uncomfortable and you will make mistakes (that you can learn from) along the way. Can't say enough about this one...

    This phenomenal book is a must-read for everyone. It helps you understand yourself better, and provides you with a road map to become a good-ish person with a growth mindset. ...

    I really enjoyed the book . Will highly recommend everyone to read . ...

    One of best books I have read in 2018. Addresses privilege, systems, inclusion and personally challenged the way I see myself and how I affect others. The good news Is if I can have a growth mindset- I can better listen and learn. I love all the great sources Dolly pulls from - and mak...

    I?m sorry, friends. I won?t be lending this one. It stays on my desk. ...

    Wow! For anyone who cares about diversity and inclusion, this is a must read! The book is really engaging and pushes us to move beyond thoughts to actions. Important for me, Dolly Chugh gives very specific and doable suggestions at times when I struggled to come up with some on my own,...

    In a time where bias, privilege, marches and riots have become part of our day to day lives, Dr. Dolly Chugh has come along with a ?how to? book to navigate this very complicated world in which we live. I have thought of myself as empathetic to those who fall into minority grou...

    I wear many hats: oncologist, husband, son, and householder. These hats, combined with my passion for continuous learning, reading, and politics, fill my life with questions. How do I help educate others on the latest news in politics from the books I've read? How do I have difficult c...

    This is an amazing and important book, and I could not recommend it more. The mix of stories and science and action-steps makes it incredibly compelling. Dolly Chugh helps us understand why there is a space between the people we are and the people we mean to be, and she gives actionabl...

    This culmination of research and interviews is an approachable, evidence-based work that does a good job of coaxing the reader into awareness without judgement or reprimand. The aspirational undertones of fighting bias and making the world better for marginalized people is substantiate...

    I wear many hats: oncologist, husband, son, and householder. These hats, combined with my passion for continuous learning, reading, and politics, fill my life with questions. How do I help educate others on the latest news in politics from the books I've read? How do I have difficult c...

    This is an amazing and important book, and I could not recommend it more. The mix of stories and science and action-steps makes it incredibly compelling. Dolly Chugh helps us understand why there is a space between the people we are and the people we mean to be, and she gives actionabl...

    This culmination of research and interviews is an approachable, evidence-based work that does a good job of coaxing the reader into awareness without judgement or reprimand. The aspirational undertones of fighting bias and making the world better for marginalized people is substantiate...

    As a female healthcare executive, mom, and community advocate, I am confronted with many issues related to diversity and inclusion daily. This evidence-based book gave me many tools to manage these situations with a growth mindset. The author masterfully writes about her stories, exper...

    This is exactly the sort of book that will help me as I continue to find ways to engage my community and become a better ally and agitator in different parts of my life. The author offers guidance not only for how-- but also when and whom-- to engage others. We can all put this psychol...

    POW! This book hit me between the eyes, in the heart and in the gut. Dr. Chugh combines wit and wisdom to help all of us notice - and start to SEE - the myriad inequalities, oppression and imbalances people in our world experience. And then, with stories, hints, suggestions and questio...

    That feeling. When a bunch of fragmented, private thoughts and uncomfortable conversations come together and suddenly begin to make sense? that is this book. Dolly Chugh did an amazing job of combining stories, research data and her insight to help me see things in a different light....

    The Person You Mean to Be is an extraordinary book that helped me answer questions I?ve been grappling with for a long time. I am a true believer in equity, diversity and inclusion but have often found myself paralyzed by fear, discomfort and/or the sheer enormity of the problems fac...

    This should be required reading for anyone between the ages of 13 and 90. That?s not a joke. Every day, it seems like there?s an even more depressing story in the news. Racism. Sexism. Religious intolerance. Real people are being hurt. These are tough, uncomfortable topics, and as ...

    With all of the chaos in the world around us, especially with respect to issues of bias in race, gender and sexual orientation, Dolly Chugh elegantly sheds light on how we can and should get involved and be the people we mean to be. It is rich with references to social science research...

    Will be using as required or recommended reading when I next teach social psych or my skepticism & scientific thinking course. ...

    Professor Chugh writes early on that throughout the book ?science will guide us and stories will bring the science to life.? She delivers 100% on that promise, illustrating the best of the empirical literature with narratives of how it unfolds every day. That she manages to do so, ...

    I'm recommending this book to everyone I know! Accessible, informative, evidence-based, and with concrete advice on how to fight bias and deal with the facts that it can be uncomfortable and you will make mistakes (that you can learn from) along the way. Can't say enough about this one...

    This phenomenal book is a must-read for everyone. It helps you understand yourself better, and provides you with a road map to become a good-ish person with a growth mindset. ...

    I really enjoyed the book . Will highly recommend everyone to read . ...

    One of best books I have read in 2018. Addresses privilege, systems, inclusion and personally challenged the way I see myself and how I affect others. The good news Is if I can have a growth mindset- I can better listen and learn. I love all the great sources Dolly pulls from - and mak...

    I?m sorry, friends. I won?t be lending this one. It stays on my desk. ...

    Wow! For anyone who cares about diversity and inclusion, this is a must read! The book is really engaging and pushes us to move beyond thoughts to actions. Important for me, Dolly Chugh gives very specific and doable suggestions at times when I struggled to come up with some on my own,...

    In a time where bias, privilege, marches and riots have become part of our day to day lives, Dr. Dolly Chugh has come along with a ?how to? book to navigate this very complicated world in which we live. I have thought of myself as empathetic to those who fall into minority grou...

    Although peppered with engaging personal anecdotal stories, ?The Person You Mean To Be,? by Dr. Dolly Chugh is, at its core, an evidence-based recipe book for getting over the psychological inertia that keeps you at rest, helping you move from ?thinking about how to be a better p...

    POW! This book hit me between the eyes, in the heart and in the gut. Dr. Chugh combines wit and wisdom to help all of us notice - and start to SEE - the myriad inequalities, oppression and imbalances people in our world experience. And then, with stories, hints, suggestions and questio...

    This should be required reading for anyone between the ages of 13 and 90. That?s not a joke. Every day, it seems like there?s an even more depressing story in the news. Racism. Sexism. Religious intolerance. Real people are being hurt. These are tough, uncomfortable topics, and as ...

    I'm recommending this book to everyone I know! Accessible, informative, evidence-based, and with concrete advice on how to fight bias and deal with the facts that it can be uncomfortable and you will make mistakes (that you can learn from) along the way. Can't say enough about this one...

    I really enjoyed the book . Will highly recommend everyone to read . ...

    One of best books I have read in 2018. Addresses privilege, systems, inclusion and personally challenged the way I see myself and how I affect others. The good news Is if I can have a growth mindset- I can better listen and learn. I love all the great sources Dolly pulls from - and mak...

    I?m sorry, friends. I won?t be lending this one. It stays on my desk. ...

    Wow! For anyone who cares about diversity and inclusion, this is a must read! The book is really engaging and pushes us to move beyond thoughts to actions. Important for me, Dolly Chugh gives very specific and doable suggestions at times when I struggled to come up with some on my own,...

    In a time where bias, privilege, marches and riots have become part of our day to day lives, Dr. Dolly Chugh has come along with a ?how to? book to navigate this very complicated world in which we live. I have thought of myself as empathetic to those who fall into minority grou...

    In this book, Dr. Dolly Chugh reveals the how all of us "good people" view others through our own unconscious biases, which causes our well-meaning actions to not be as beneficial as we had intended. There is so much to be learned from this book, and the lessons she provides expertly c...

    I wear many hats: oncologist, husband, son, and householder. These hats, combined with my passion for continuous learning, reading, and politics, fill my life with questions. How do I help educate others on the latest news in politics from the books I've read? How do I have difficult c...

    This is an amazing and important book, and I could not recommend it more. The mix of stories and science and action-steps makes it incredibly compelling. Dolly Chugh helps us understand why there is a space between the people we are and the people we mean to be, and she gives actionabl...

    I've read many books and articles about overcoming bias. Dolly's book is by far the most compelling, informative, and well-written book! What makes this book so great is that it weaves together personal stories, research, and great narrative to keep the reader engaged and interested in...

    This is exactly the sort of book that will help me as I continue to find ways to engage my community and become a better ally and agitator in different parts of my life. The author offers guidance not only for how-- but also when and whom-- to engage others. We can all put this psychol...

    In addition to the evidence-based insights and action-items, this book has a very approachable voice that engages its readers in a non-threatening way. I'm looking forward to discussing it as more people dive into the material! ...

    Remarkable book. It was provocative, pragmatic and inspiring. Real life stories of real people who aim to be inclusive - and the science behind our behavior. You will not be able to put this book down. And you will want to read it again. ...

    This culmination of research and interviews is an approachable, evidence-based work that does a good job of coaxing the reader into awareness without judgement or reprimand. The aspirational undertones of fighting bias and making the world better for marginalized people is substantiate...

    Although peppered with engaging personal anecdotal stories, ?The Person You Mean To Be,? by Dr. Dolly Chugh is, at its core, an evidence-based recipe book for getting over the psychological inertia that keeps you at rest, helping you move from ?thinking about how to be a better p...

    POW! This book hit me between the eyes, in the heart and in the gut. Dr. Chugh combines wit and wisdom to help all of us notice - and start to SEE - the myriad inequalities, oppression and imbalances people in our world experience. And then, with stories, hints, suggestions and questio...

    That feeling. When a bunch of fragmented, private thoughts and uncomfortable conversations come together and suddenly begin to make sense? that is this book. Dolly Chugh did an amazing job of combining stories, research data and her insight to help me see things in a different light....

    The Person You Mean to Be is an extraordinary book that helped me answer questions I?ve been grappling with for a long time. I am a true believer in equity, diversity and inclusion but have often found myself paralyzed by fear, discomfort and/or the sheer enormity of the problems fac...

    This should be required reading for anyone between the ages of 13 and 90. That?s not a joke. Every day, it seems like there?s an even more depressing story in the news. Racism. Sexism. Religious intolerance. Real people are being hurt. These are tough, uncomfortable topics, and as ...

    With all of the chaos in the world around us, especially with respect to issues of bias in race, gender and sexual orientation, Dolly Chugh elegantly sheds light on how we can and should get involved and be the people we mean to be. It is rich with references to social science research...

    Will be using as required or recommended reading when I next teach social psych or my skepticism & scientific thinking course. ...

    Professor Chugh writes early on that throughout the book ?science will guide us and stories will bring the science to life.? She delivers 100% on that promise, illustrating the best of the empirical literature with narratives of how it unfolds every day. That she manages to do so, ...

    Livro que explora como o nosso cérebro comporta face aos esteriótipos da sociedade como lgbt, minorities, men vs women. Faz-nos ver que, pelo facto de por vezes termos esses pensamentos, não nos faz más pessoas. No entanto alerta-nos para estes comportamentos comuns na nossa socied...

    I'm recommending this book to everyone I know! Accessible, informative, evidence-based, and with concrete advice on how to fight bias and deal with the facts that it can be uncomfortable and you will make mistakes (that you can learn from) along the way. Can't say enough about this one...

    One of best books I have read in 2018. Addresses privilege, systems, inclusion and personally challenged the way I see myself and how I affect others. The good news Is if I can have a growth mindset- I can better listen and learn. I love all the great sources Dolly pulls from - and mak...

    I?m sorry, friends. I won?t be lending this one. It stays on my desk. ...

    Wow! For anyone who cares about diversity and inclusion, this is a must read! The book is really engaging and pushes us to move beyond thoughts to actions. Important for me, Dolly Chugh gives very specific and doable suggestions at times when I struggled to come up with some on my own,...

    In a time where bias, privilege, marches and riots have become part of our day to day lives, Dr. Dolly Chugh has come along with a ?how to? book to navigate this very complicated world in which we live. I have thought of myself as empathetic to those who fall into minority grou...

    "I had hoped that [good people] would understand that law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress."* Martin Luther King wrote those words in his...

    In this book, Dr. Dolly Chugh reveals the how all of us "good people" view others through our own unconscious biases, which causes our well-meaning actions to not be as beneficial as we had intended. There is so much to be learned from this book, and the lessons she provides expertly c...
