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.

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