A bold, satirical humour book on how to achieve success like a Great White Male
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.
“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”
“I can’t recommend this book enough … Hilarious work from Nels Abbey”
“I have no doubt this is the book to shake up 2019 the same way Reni Eddo-Lodge’s Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People about Race did 2017”
“Hilariously captures the realities of working in corporate spaces … although lighthearted in tone, he approaches the topic with a level of care and understanding that allows readers to engage beyond the satire and confront the ways in which they navigate the workspace”
