Bias Is All Around You!  Can you separate fact from fiction to safeguard your mental health?  Let our handbook be your guide for inspecting all the information you are exposed to in social media today. If you cannot properly assess information bias, it could:

1. Lead you to follow a false cause
2. Leave you feeling foolish
3. Tarnish your credibility
4. Attract the wrong people
5. Create undue stress
6. Compromise your values
7. Harm your mental health

These undesirable outcomes need not occur! For it's time to read between the lines and assess bias now! Together, we can chart a new discourse, one that uses information wisely, with prudence, and goodwill.

Join Erik Bean as he takes you on a rigorous yet introspective journey to snuff out bias, to understand algorithms that affect internet and social media information and provide you simple assessment tools that allow you to be more confident if you use the information and share it. Foreword written by Tim Vos, Ph.D., Director, School of Journalism, Michigan State University. Award-Winning Illustrator Gail Gorske provides relevant and brilliant handcut paper images.
