Stuff Hipsters Hate: Being Conventionally Attractive. In the hipster world, being hot is a lot less important than being interesting-looking. While a dude with close-cropped hair, a chiseled jaw and a swimmer’s physique may be a prime physical specimen to the rest of society, to a hipster he’s pretty much a nonentity. For the next three days, my friends, who are all from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, would gather over copious amounts of Czech beer and take turns reading the teeny tiny iphone screen with this book on it.

Unfortunately, a lot of books born of blogs have not had a high level of writing. A lot of it is gimmicky - gags, joke telling. To me, that’s not interesting as a book. When my book came out, hipsters shopped at the Salvation Army for trucker hats so they could look the part of someone without much money. But it’s upper middle class kids living in expensive apartments with all these expensive accouterments. Ehrlich thinks that she and her fellow hipsterati, like so many spawn of our digital age, may be in for a very short run. I think this peaked maybe back in July, she says of the blogs-to-books mania that has been raging in the publishing industry for several years.

Made a great gift

So I rarely comment on anything (I'm very mysterious like that), but I couldn't resist throwing my opinion out on this one. Ready for it? This book is a must read for anyone aware of the world around them. Not only did Bartz and Ehrlich manage to capture the swirling mess of hipsterdom that is impossible to ignore (in williamsburg, at least) and even harder to comprehend, the duo managed to make it relatable to even the squarest "trixies" (ahem. me). From dating habits, to general distaste for...well...anything, the girls nail it.

And, if you're truly a hipster and don't want to shell out the $10-something for the book - which is lame, by the way, you can go without PBR for a night - you can check out the duo's tumblr blog ([...]).

This weekend I was on a loooong flight that necessitated a lot of reading material. On a whim I downloaded the "Stuff Hipsters Hate" ibook - I had never even heard of the tumblr.

For the next three days, my friends, who are all from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, would gather over copious amounts of Czech beer and take turns reading the teeny tiny iphone screen with this book on it. It is, simply put, genius.

And here's what we found - if we substituted the Sarajevo equivalents for all the Brooklyn-specific references and bar names, what is described ARE OUR LIVES and the many hipster "ghosters" we dated.

So, as soon as I got back, I ordered 5 (oh, yes, FIVE) hard copies of this amazing book from Amazon to send to all aforementioned friends. We hope to pass them on to all the hipster pseudo-boyfriends in our lives.

I'd say this was the best 12 dollars I've ever spent on a book, but since I bought five, it was the best 60 dollars ever spent. Buy early and buy often. No regrets.

I wanted a kitchy, fun coffee table type book with more snapshots for my friends who just moved to Portland. This was not it. Too much reading involved, not enough "quick" witty jokes.

Got this book for my brother in law. He and my sister love it and said it was so hilarious!! Great gift idea!

Really not that funny. It's a decent book for reminding yourself about the hipsters you know, but the book, despite its own claims of applying to all hipsters of all times, is NYC-centric. Moreover, it's basically written from the point of view, explicitly spelled out in the introduction, of two fresh-out-of-college grads that moved to New York City and subsequently dated, and were dumped by, a lot of hipster guys. That point of view just makes you feel sorry for the authors, who can't hide either their pre- or post-hipster-dumped-me naivety (or their lack of writing skill).

The authors try to step back and give some analysis or larger perspective and occasionally say something lucid or insightful, but the laughs just aren't there, no matter how many "clever" graphs, charts or comics are inserted here and there throughout the book.

Not a bad book, but far, far from the brilliance of "Stuff White People Like," which is so obviously alluded to in the title.
I was surprised and disappointed by how shallow and derogatory this book was in its description of hipsters. I lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn during the early 2000's. I was definitely a hipster during that time in terms of my life philosophy and fashion. All the people I knew and hung out with would probably have been described as hipsters too. This book basically only played into stereotypes and provided no insight into the social phenomenon of the hipster mind-set. The "hipsters" I knew were intellectually bold and artistically talented in addition to loving skinny jeans and clashing accessories. I would like to add that hipster irony is basically a parody of the superficiality of American mainstream culture. Maybe some so-called hipsters are conformist and cheesy, but why does everyone dwell on the worst of the bunch? I'm still looking for a smart, even-handed analysis of hipster culture.
