And they're here, and you're gonna have to deal. Fortunately, here's a book that investigates, explains, and offers advice for finding social success with the Caucasian persuasion. So kick back on your IKEA couch and lose yourself in the ultimate guide to the unbearable whiteness of being. I laughed out loud throughout when listening to this book.
Stuff White People Like: The Definitive Guide to the Unique Taste of Millions (Unabridged)
It really hits home, with both obvious and insightful observations of 'white culture' that helped me see the humour in myself and others. But when I went to write a review and rate the audiobook I saw that perhaps the style of humour and the dead-on tone of narration is not universal. Definitely check out the sample; if you think this sounds like your cup of tea after that, you won't be disappointed!
This is not a bad audiobook. The material itself is rather funny by 'White' people the writer means educated, upwardly mobile, middle class types. There are some geniunely funny observations about modern middle class culture and "hip" culture. And the entries are all rather short so it is not exactly "Deep" or serious but a lot of fun.
If you have not read the blog or just want some light background noise you could do much worse. Listen to the sample. Kinda funny? Well, it gets real old after 30 minutes. This book was a hilarious guide to today's politically correct white culture. I laughed out loud the entire time!

Not from this author. The narrator suffered from working with bad material. Would you ever listen to anything by Christian Lander again? I would never listen to this author again. Work is plagged with platitudes and absolutely no wit.
Dry reading without much artistry. Mind you, consider the material.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment? I am disappointed. I had hoped for something that would get me laughing at myself and at the target community or maybe even teach me something. Lander himself is a "type" of White man from Canada and writes with the expertise of a cultural anthropologist and with a sharp sense of humor.
This book enumerates ways to be White in one's actions, thoughts, and desires.

Christian Lander's book is as much about about social class and race as it is comical. The pithy title shouldn't scare anyone way; everyone should be intrigued. With tongue firmly pressed in cheek, Lander points out the things that "White people like" as a social critique because absolutely no one would want to be these White people as they are described. It's not that these things are bad to like, quite the opposite; most are quite good things.

What Lander points out is that this "type" of White people and he does use this word "type", but to talk about those who do not like this stuff tend to be spoiled, upper-middle classes, educated, self-absorbed, self described intellectuals and one-upping hypocrites, whose charitable interests are all about impressing other people and not at all about doing good deeds for others selflessly. They buy their groceries at Whole Foods and drive Priuses and are apt to talk about saving the environment, being against racism, sexism, and all the other ills of societies, but exoticize everything historically ancient Asian, South American, and African, and show no real concern for the workers being exploited by their favorite companies.
That is, they basically have very little to do with the real world around them. This is not a book for anyone who doesn't enjoy some humor based upon critical observations made by an insider; and it is certainly not for anyone who doesn't enjoy racial humor at least a little bit.
If you are part of the demographic that Lander satirizes or you know people who may be, I highly recommend this book. Don't be misled by the catchy title--this is really an anti-liberal screed. If you're not in this category but happen to be white, you might be surprised to learn that, as a white person, you disdain Budweiser, are a wine-snob and have a penchant for organizing "awareness" campaigns while having no interest in actually solving the problem.
You may even be surprised to learn such things if you ARE a member of that particular class. Truely the first 5 min is very funny.

I found myself chuckling and hoping that his book was going to go somewhere really funny. If you listen to the first two minutes it sets the same format and tone for the entire book. Its someone reading a list of what white people do, thats it.
