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.

    "Spoiler Alert"
    Any additional comments?

    I made the mistake of looking the author up on the internet in the middle of listening to this book. . After learning more about him I found that I just couldn't finish the book. Maybe just my preconceptions about who would write a book like this? Or the blog that the book is taken from.

    But be warned - don't research the author until you have finished this book. This book will never be the same once you know about the author.

    Story
    "Good Humor"
    If you could sum up Stuff White People Like in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining. I had a belly-laugh at some of it, but mostly it was a gathering of truisms that were well written, but often repeatative. It was still fun and I bookmarked many to share with my wife. Performance was so-so. It would have been more listenable if the reader was not so obviously white! If we are making fun of a race, would it not be plausible for another race to present it? I know the author is white, but that does not mean the reader needs to be.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Did Victor Bevine do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    "As funny as a book can get!"

    Wow! I can not believe how right on this book is. It's always fun to see how much we are all alike. Is anyone unique?
    Great book for sure.

    "Moderately amusing"

    The book should not be taken seriously, I found it mostly amusing, relaxing and lighthearted, some of it can even be cute, it's best to gloss over some offensive bits here and there, and best not to attempt to match every point, as it is only talking about, "the right kind of white people..."

    "Horrible Narrator"

    Could have read the blog for free; they should try having someone a bit more comedic read the nest one.
