    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.

    Overall

    As a just left of center white person, I thought this would either be funny or have some insights about our culture. It is neither entertaining nor informative. For a truly engaging account of the people and culture Mr. Lander describes, read Bobos in Paradise by David Brooks instead. This "pseudo-documentary" style is meant to by satirical I assume, but is really just boring.

    Also, the author neglects to include the enormous fraction of the white population who are not college-educated liberals in his characterizations.
