    • 94. combines many of the things white people like. They can hang out on the internet, talk to people who have similar views on Sarah Palin and climate change, feel their liberal arts degree is useful for something and put down other white people while pretending to have pleasant conversations with them. The very best part, though, is being able to show everyone the books they've read. If a white person has read a book, they really want all the other white people to know they've read it, but if [...]


    • Stuff White People Like may be misleading to some because, from the title, they'll expect this book to be about stuff that white people like. [image error]Various white demographics weren't hurt in the making of this book.This is not necessarily the fact. In Lander's own words (pulled indiscreetly from ), this book is "rather a stereotype of affluent, environmentally and socially conscious, anti-corporate white North Americans, who typically hold a degree in the liberal arts."In other words: Hip [...]


    • Hey Brian, Do you guys want play Cranium tomorrow night? Otherwise you could come over at like 10:30 and we could go to the farmer's market. I have been trying to buy local and it is actually the cheapest place to get organic apples. Anyway, you guys could come if you want. There is a new brunch place I want to try. You could also go to the thrift store with us. We want to get tacky wedding decorationsG, have you ever seen that movie Flirting? We watched it last night on Netflix streaming during [...]


    • Wow! I'm not nearly as white as I thought!I only scored 25% when I took the "How White Are You" quiz in the back of the book.Some of my likes that are shared with other white people are coffee, tea, dogs, beards, glasses, expensive sandwiches, hardwood floors, T-shirts, vintage, bakeries and making others feel bad for not going outdoors.On the other hand, I have no interest whatsoever in $800 strollers, rock climbing, music festivals, gifted children, microbreweries,Apple products, having two la [...]


    • Beneath the humour of this (mostly hilarious) book is an important statement about the homogeneity, pretence, and entitlement of the white middle classes in their movements as the luckiest bastards on this planet. Chortle, white people (for white people like Stuff White People Like—it’s so true!), but peer long into the mirror, accept your inherent racism, the pathetic logic you use for defending selfish life choices, your shameless acceptance of white privilege as a right, your predilection [...]


    • What White People Will Learn:-That everything you do to be different makes you the same as everyone else.-Whether or not you're 'the right kind of white person'-What other white people are doing that you could be doing to become even whiter.What People of Color Will Learn:-How to become friends with/manipulate white people-How to make sure you only befriend/manipulate 'the right kind of white person'-How to talk to white people and have them think that you are cool/smart/fun/romanticAs funny as [...]


    • So, Umm Do "white people" like this book? No, they don't. They liked the idea of the website before it was created, and may have even laughed at one of the references when they were in on the joke before you. But by the time the site hit the web, it was old news, and they'd moved on to newer and/or older, less mainstream entertainment. Like reading blogs devoted to "How to wear your multiple knotted scarves in ways different from everyone else." And now that I've just drawn attention to that, th [...]


    • The "white people" mentioned here are basically left-leaning white liberals. If you leave out the "white", it includes me. :)I love satire, even if it is at my own expense. Lander does a fair job of lampooning the pretentions of armchair socialists, who wear expensive clothing, sip expensive drinks and consider themselves to have done their mite for the society by avoiding plastic and participating in "awareness" drives. Basically, they want to make a difference without letting go of their comfo [...]


    • In one of my more earth-shattering moments of glorious word-spinning, allow me to summarize the deepest oceans that are my thoughts on this book: "Ummhehis book was pretty funny, dude."Let me tell you something else I learnedAs you may have noticed, I am, in fact, white. However, as far as these guys are concerned, I am, like, THE WHITEST PERSON IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. I'm like the daughter in that scene in The People Under the Stairs where the mom throws her in the boiling hot bath, only if the tu [...]


    • Smug condesention from a white guy, mostly about how his friends are and going under the assumption all white people of a certain income bracket are the exact same way. Of course, I do some of the things in here, but just as many were totally unappealing or ridiculous. It's just a hype book and I won't be reading the second book by Mr. Lander. It's a clear example of a blog with semi-original material getting a book deal based on hits. The blog has similar content for free. This was part of my c [...]


    • Okay, I have to admit that what I liked most about this was that each of the 150 "chapters" were about a page each, which made it really easy to pick up and read when I just had a minute or two. Although according to the quiz I am only 10% white, I got a good chuckle over quite a few of the things "the right kind of white person" likes. Two of my favorites? #87 Outdoor Performance Clothes "When white people aren't working, they generally like to wear outdoor performance clothes . . . The main re [...]


    • I don't really know what I think about this book or even how to describe it.i just read it while house sitting. i wanted something to read while soaking in the bathtub. While the family I am house sitting for has literally hundreds of books, most are novels (lots and lots and lots of mysteries) or historical/academic texts. I didn't want to start something that I wouldn't be able to finish and I didn't really want to get into any heavy reading. So I poked around until I found this. I think this [...]


    • My mother got me this for my birthday. She's totally making fun of me! I'm gonna show her the entry on Noam Chomsky because that's her. We'll see who is laughing then. (She'll then point to the entries on glasses, Michel Gondry, vegetarianism and Arrested Development. Then I'll point to "hating your parents".) (Or she might've gotten this for me since one of my weirdo pasttimes is making my african parrot speak to me in a little voice I created for him: "Evil white man" [that's me] and rants on [...]


    • These books are hilarious and really, the most hilarious thing about them is that white people think they are hilarious. Why is that? I mean, it's all true. But why doesn't that mean that white people DON'T find it funny?????!Read this morning:To fully understand why white people love [Adult Swim] so much you have to understand the world of 'under-ground animation,' which is something that has been beloved by white people since Fritz the Cat. The more hard-core white people (single white men) wi [...]


    • I was saving this book for when I was in need of a pick me up and maybe that need and my already depressed feelings of the day going into this book were too strong, as though the humor was a little short to balance out my mood. For whatever the reason, I had hoped this book would be better than it ended up. AnywaysI snickered a good amount but there were no deep belly laughs or rolling on the floor laughing escapades. I almost feel as though the author tried too hard. This book is targeted towar [...]


    • After Salman Rushdie exposed me for the ignoramus that I am (I couldn’t claim a full appreciation for his prize-winning allegory Midnight’s Children), I decided to go light with my next selection. So now I’ve been exposed for fitting a cultural stereotype a little too closely. It’s all in good fun, though. So what if I’m a coffee-drinking, European-traveling, New Balance-wearing, Wrigley Field-attending, dog-loving, documentary-watching white guy who likes irony, apologies, the idea of [...]


    • This book is mortifying! It lists short essays on 150 things white people embrace. And not the "wrong kind" of white people, who would be those considered trashy or not within the important artistic and aware cities of New York, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle or Austin. According to it, I am at least 40% white, which = pompous. At first I was a little nervous about the title because I thought it might be idiotically off-base or embarrassigly white while pretending not to be. Nope. It is a perf [...]


    • DNF Couldn't do it. Tried numerous times, skimmed through the book thinking certain ones would make me laugh but nope. Idk if it's because I have so much crap going on in my life that this wasn't even slightly amusing to me or the fact I'm only 0.06% white according to the quiz in the back of the book. Go figure.


    • As any true white person knows, our book came out just a few weeks ago. Stuff White People Like by Christian Lander is one of the funniest things I’ve read all year. If you aren’t up on how to be the whitest you can be, this will definitely tell you everything from which authors to read (stick to Sedaris) and which newspapers you should make sure to always have on your coffee table while other white people visit your Ikea infested abode(The New Yorker and the New York Times, respectively).It [...]


    • While this book was mildly amusing, for the most part, it came across as completely disparaging and overly stereotypical. The jokes were not haha-funny, but were mean-funny. Now, those types of jokes ARE funny, IN DOSES. Not an entire book worth. Also, 95% of the items were generic things that EVERYONE likes for no specific reason. Sushi? really? "Bad breakups"? Like I said, way overgeneralized. The author was trying way too hard to be funny and successful with this venture, but it came across v [...]


    • Things in this book that I really do like and/or apply to me:-Coffee-Farmer's Markets-Wes Anderson Movies-Wine-Not Having TV-Brunch-Indie Music-Sushi-Public Radio-Dogs-Kitchen Gadgets (yes, including my ♥ Kitchen-Aid Mixer ♥)-Documentaries-T-Shirts-Scarves-San Francisco-Plaid-Reusable Shopping Bags-Not Having Cash-Books-CheeseSide note: In the 'Vintage' chapter, the author states that when white people get older (like over 30) and lose opportunities to wear vintage clothing such as a "Pittsb [...]


    • This book, in addition to be very funny, was also astonishingly insightful. It amazes me that edgy Christians who think they are developing some sort of prophetic "third way" are just being terminally white.


    • Edit: I'm done with this. At least as much as I'm going to read. I didn't read every single one, mostly just the ones that I felt applied to me/ people I know. Otherwise it'd just not really interesting to me. I don't care how stereotypical it is for white people to snowboard, 'cause I don't snowboard or know anything about snowboarding. Anyway, it's amusing pure silliness. OR IS IT. I admit it also makes you question your choices/tastes. I mean, if this random white guy is able to predict your [...]



    • I wish I hadn't bought this book. I should have checked out this guy's blog first because then I would have realized his humour annoys me more than it makes me laugh. The book, and his blog for that matter, could be more accurately labeled "Stuff Pretentious West Coast Yuppies Like". The few times I did laugh were when I recognized someone I know (including myself) that fit the stereotype he was describing, and I was like "wow, am I that annoying!?" Maybe these past few years living in the West [...]


    • This is one of the most insulting, paternalistic, painfully unfunny pieces of self indulgent liberal tripe I have ever read. There is no redeeming value to it. A snide and condescending attitude abounds in it.Knowing I got this book from a library is the only redeeming factor - I would feel terrible if I paid for it. Even so, the only socially responsible action will be to discretely ditch this piece of crap in the nearest wastebasket once it has been re-shelved, lest anyone else accidentally be [...]


    • This book is great, certainly, but my experience of reading it was a bit damaged by first reading the sequel, Whiter Shades of Pale. Both books are collections of blog posts from stuffwhitepeoplelike, a satirical blog poking gentle fun at the culture created by overeducated overprivileged young people in the States (generally, but not exclusively, white people). Because, in each book, Lander is so careful not to include The Wrong Kind of White People (best example: all white people own a Wii, bu [...]


    • I have to say, I was excited whan I saw this book at Borders, because I've read the blog and thought it was hilarious, but I was really disappointed when I read the book. The humor from the blog doesn't transfer well into the printed medium, and it felt like the majority of the book content was no more than entries from his blog in a print-and-bound version, with a few added visual aids.While Lander's sense of humor is fine for small daily doses on a blog, it wears thin quickly when one is sitti [...]


    • I didn't understand this book. Maybe because I'm only 13% white. Which is weird because my skin is so transparent you can see my veins. I got points for liking cheese but I thought that was because I was born in Wisconsint because I was white. French people don't like cheese? Didn't they invent Brie?I lost points because my kids aren't multilingual. Hell, sometimes I don't think they even speak english.Don't read this book. It will shatter what little self esteem you have. I can't even do white [...]


    • This book starts off kind of funny, then it gets worse and worse and worse until finally you're so embarrassed for the author, the publisher, and anyone else who had anything to do it, but most of all for yourself, because you chose to read it, even if you got it from the library and didn't actually pay money for it.
