Format: Paperback
I got this book on a whim. The title intrigued me, "Stuff White People Like", what was that all about? Well I soon found out and though it is very American you can very much relate it to any white middle class life all OVER the world. From the very first page I found myself laughing out loud. I couldn't help myself. Not only that I REALLY tried to feel guilty but I just couldn't because when all was said and done all Mr Lander was doing was showing us what was in front of our eyes, we just haven't realised it. Until now.

Diversity made me fall out of my wheelchair chuckling with mirth, so VERY true. And as for the page titled "having Black friends" well my friend had to practically resusitate me. I smiled when I read about Dogs, guilty as charged, I love dogs, I get that I suspect from my English (and white) mother, my Indian father has grown to tolerate us having dogs in our house but he isn't a fan the way we are. The "How White Are You?" at the end of the book sounds offensive, but actually it isn't. It makes a point that I think a lot of people don't get. Having read some of the other reviews I can see that a lot of people are offended by this book.

Would they be offended by a book called Stuff Black People Like? Somehow I doubt it. It would probably be looked at as some sort of seminal book on ethnicity that needed to be read from cover to cover and discussed in coffee shops, whilst contemplating a change of religion and looking at diversity as the new "way forward" but only if it means a change of menu.

Mr Lander you have opened a can of worms. I trust you will open another can and write another book, possibly titled, "More Stuff White People Like."

Moleskin Notebooks, Expensive Baby Buggies, Never Used Kitchen Aid Mixers, Yoga and Apple Computers. Middle Class consumers of these items get it in the neck in this fantastic book.
In a desperate bid to appear ecologically worldly wise and creatively individual, white upper middle class people all buy the exact same expensive stuff. It makes for a unsettling read as it lists all the stuff I love. I know the middle class are an easy target for satire but this book does it in a funny and thought provoking way.
Self congratulation, gentrification, white assimilation and division, and middle class guilt are all touched upon by the excellent choice of items.
Many of the reviews on the American web site claim this book is racist and devisive but they are really overeacting and miss the point (plus any book that can devide opinion and create debate is fine by me)
This is an American book so some of the brand names and companies will be unfamiliar but you can easily substitute English versions, plus everything is becoming Americanised anyway thanks to globalization.
For me this book punctures pomposity, piousness and elitism in a deadly accurate but ironically light hearted way. If you're looking for a present for the gently self loathing, irony loving person in your life, this is the book to buy (just make sure they read it on full view whilst drinking ultra expensive fair trade coffee in a Shoreditch coffee shop!)

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It is truly disconcerting how much of myself I saw in this book! But at least now I know I am the "right kind" of white person. If you are or know a nice white middle class do-gooder type who likes a laugh at their own expense, this book is for you. And if you are not a nice white middle class do-gooder type but likes a laugh at the expense of such people, this book is also for you. I lost track of the number of belly laughs I had reading this book. What makes it great is that blogger and author Christian Lander has not gone for the easiest or most obvious points to comment on - at least not exclusively! Thus, along with farmer's markets, we also have glasses. As well as the more obvious dinner parties, white people also love outdoor performance clothes. And every piece is sharply observed, cleverly written, and razor-sharp. It is augmented with flow charts which are themselves hialrious. Ideal for a gift, I will be adding a few of these to my Christmas shopping basket!

Format: Paperback
No wonder this blog / book caused such a sensation. The people it describes are the very ones who think themselves the most unique, creative and original. Like hell they are - a quick walk around Stoke Newington and Hackney Village will expose to even the most casual observer how predictable they all are. The realisation is simultaneously crushing and reassuring.

My favourite entries:
* Black Music that Black People Don't Listen to Anymore
* Self Aware Hip Hop References
* Bad Memories of High School
* Hating Corporations
* Knowing What's Best for Poor People
* Making you feel bad about not going outside
* Gentrification

I saw Christian Lander give a talk about this at LSE a couple of years ago and he was very engaging. Brilliant stuff!

A few of the reviewers have mentioned that it is very American-centric. There is a British version of the website, which is very good too (with entries on The Guardian, misanthropy, Stewart Lee, etc): stuffwhitebritslike.co.uk
