‘Hilarious … This original approach to discussing race is funny, intellectual and timely’ Independent
‘The work of a true mastermind’ Benjamin Zephaniah
I learned early on that, for me as a black professional, to rise through the ranks and really attain power, I needed to adopt the most ruthless of mindsets possible: the mindset of the White Man who would tear your cheek from your face before he even considered turning his one first.
“Cutting!! This book rewarded me with dark, dry chuckles on every page. I had to laugh, because if I didn’t, I would cry”

“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”
“A book like no other, taking you on a thrill ride/thrill guide through the world of default white dominance. Nels Abbey has created a work of the blackest humour (pun intended) and it is unrepentantly rewarding … Wicked in every sense of the word.”
“I can’t recommend this book enough … Hilarious work from Nels Abbey”
“Hugely entertaining and entirely unapologetic … as comical as it is bleak”
