Free Download: Kevin McCarthy’s book Blindspots now available through Amazon1/8/2018 11:39 AM

Kevin McCarthy presented about Blindspots to the ISACA Illini Chapter in April of 2017. 


Blindspots are those unconscious biases, implicit associations, memory traps and thinking errors that affect our behavior and our decision-making abilities. 


Kevin’s book is now available through Amazon and on the first day of each month in 2018, a free digital copy will be available for everyone.  Please visit and search for "Kevin McCarthy BlindSpots", or you can simply click this link:


The Kindle version will be no charge - but only on the first day of each month. However, to accommodate for the holiday, the Kindle book will be available on January 15th as well. It is not necessary to own a Kindle device as the Kindle software / apps can be downloaded to any device/PC.
