The title is way too broad. The author includes 150 entries of what he believes 'white' people like. In actuality about 75% of the entries describe things hipsters like. The other 25% could be more generally applied to things that middle to upper-middle class Americans like. This is much more about class and a certain sub-culture of white culture (ie. hipsters). For example, the author asserts that white people hate Republicans, hate corporations, like 'Knowing What's Best for Poor People', like 'Threatening to Move to Canada, like natural childbirth, and like Free Health Care.

Ridiculously funny and scarily accurate. If you are white or know any white people, it will make you laugh. And no, it's not racist to make fun of white people...look at history, people. Fabulous!

Funny, yet has sparked many discussions between my family and I about whether or not this is blatant racism. Would it be ok if it were about any other race?

One of the most hilarious books I've ever read. I definitely thought to myself "how true!" when reading several of the entries. I especially like the passage on rock-climbing...reminds me of someone I once knew!

really funny and scarily on point. Though the same effect would be achieved with a similar book about any culture.
