Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, AuthorChats features in-depth interviews with writers about their recent works.  In this episode, she talks with Adam Benforado, associate professor of law at Drexel University, about his book Unfair: The New Science of Criminal Injustice.  Unfair has garnered stellar reviews from diverse sources.  Library Journal writes: "Benforado deftly analyzes actual cases and recent studies in psychology and neuroscience to argue for broad-based reforms ... A stimulating critique of today's criminal justice system with applications to recent cases in Ferguson, MO, and elsewhere ... Authoritative and accessible." Noam Chomsky, professor emeritus at MIT writes: "This thoughtful and penetrating study raises many deeply troubling questions and even more important, offers humane and very reasonable approaches to cure some of the ills of a syustem of 'criminal injustice' that should not be tolerated."  http://www.elizabethkelleylaw.com
