Hello everyone and happy Monday! 🙂 Today I’m going to dive into some more non-fiction with Adam Benforado’s book Unfair: The New Science of Criminal Injustice.
This was definitely a fascinating read.
Unfair: The New Science of Criminal Injustice by: Adam Benforado: This book takes on the criminal system in the United States, and takes a look at what causes some of the injustices throughout its system. Throughout the novel the reader gets scenarios of different cases to give us context as to what the law is, and how the situation was handled. This book was fast paced, very engaging, and fascinating. The book started off really strong, and as it continued it stayed pretty strong; there were moments when the information faltered and got a little too fact driven, but for the most part Benforado kept things moving, adding stories in with the facts to help the reader visualize what he’s talking about. Dealing with race, mental issues, and a slew of other issues, this book gives people a lot to think about when dealing with the law and how we perceive it.
