Publisher's Summary

They love nothing better than sipping free-trade gourmet coffee, leafing through the Sunday New York Times, and listening to David Sedaris on NPR (ideally all at the same time). Apple products, indie music, food co-ops, and vintage T-shirts make them weak in the knees. They believe they're unique, yet somehow they're all exactly the same, talking about how they "get" Sarah Silverman's "subversive" comedy and Wes Anderson's "droll" films.They're also down with diversity and up on all the best microbrews, breakfast spots, foreign cinema, and authentic sushi. They're organic, ironic, and do not own TVs. You know who they are: They're white people. 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.

One Raised Eyebrown Out of Two

Where did this guy do his research? The white people he describes refers to new age, pretentious, Californian vegan hippies.

There are a few kernels of truth in the extensive list of what white people supposedly like, but it was a lot less entertaining than I was anticipating.

I think the author sort of missed some key cliches as well.

In the book, Lander says that white people like a variety of teas (green, chai, black, etc.) but REALLY white people will have only one brand that they drink and will badmouth other brands. Lander says that white people like ethnic food, but REALLY white people like traditional meat and potatoes or whatever is local to their region.

Anyway, wasn't a fan... thought it described only the type of white person you'd see on the OC. Not me or anyone I know!

Listen to the sample. Kinda funny? possibly entertaining? Well, it gets real old after 30 minutes.
