Summary

By following the White Man Commandments - namely, that winning justifies anything and everything - you too can achieve success beyond your capabilities.

With lessons on the value of shock and awe, putting compassion on the back burner and pretending racism doesn't exist, Think Like a White Man teaches you how to understand, overcome and overthrow the White Man in the whiter-shade-of-pale world of work.

Critic reviews

"Hilarious.... This original approach to discussing race is funny, intellectual and timely." (Independent

"Cutting!! This book rewarded me with dark, dry chuckles on every page." (Reni Eddo-Lodge) 

"I really can't think of any comedian, satirist or journalist (with a sense of humour) that has made me laugh out so loud and be so stimulated intellectually at the same time. No messing people, Nels Abbey has written the most original book ever.... It takes hold of your cerebral cortex then grabs your funny bone and it doesn't let go until the very end. Honestly. Even the appendices shine with brilliance. What kind of book is this? I don't know. Just read it and see how difficult it is to put the label on the work of a true mastermind." (Benjamin Zephaniah)

Hilarious but Unlistenable

I found the content hilarious but the reading is horrendous. I thought it was part of the joke at first but it just stumbles and bumbles and drones on and on.
I'm getting a refund and buying the paperback.

Gut Punchingly Exceptional

This book lays it all bare. The machinations of undeniable racism exposed. Flawless, devastating logic. An education for this white reader. Thank you Mr Abbey.

An Well written blueprint on succeeding in a White world

A ‘MUST’ read for any immigrant basing success in this white world. Oh how I wish it had been written 20 years ago and I had read it 15 years ago!!

The truth in simple terms

Funny. If only I knew this stuff 20 years ago, I might not have lived a life of frustration and anger. A book for everyone committed to change, no just people of colour

Laughing and crying

I already have shared this book with several people including my husband. This book shuts your mouth, opens your ears, and twists your guts into a balloon animal at a quiche-baby’s first birthday. Not really sure where to go from here.
