"Depressingly astute."

"Wickedly funny."

--The Frisky

From the dive bars of Brooklyn's Williamsburg to the dirty alleys of San Francisco's Mission, the urban hipster has redefined American cool with a sighing disdain for everything mainstream. Hipsters are easily identified by their worn-out shoes, fixies and PBR tallboys, but until now no one had investigated beyond the hipster look to the even more hilarious hipster psyche. With personally researched articles, revealing illustrations and helpful charts and graphs, Stuff Hipsters Hate exposes the bottomless well of impassioned scorn that motivates the ever-apathetic hipster, including:

MATING AND SOCIAL HATES

♦buying you a drink

♦monogamy

♦texting back in a timely fashion

APPAREL AND GROOMING HATES

♦high heels

♦muscles

♦being asked about their tattoos

WORK AND LIFE HATES

♦full-time jobs

♦knowing their bank balance

♦enthusiasm

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Frustrated by the Brooklyn hipster dating scene, freelance writers Ehrlich and Bartz recorded their observations of the subculture that spurned them in their popular blog. Assuming a tone of serious anthropological researchers, which is cute in small doses but quickly grows tiresome, they analyze hipster habits and beliefs like apparel (forgoing socks as "a testament to their rejection of mainstream, sock-wearing society"), mating (females prefer males "whose spindly legs barely support their concave chests") and grooming (favoring "practiced disarray"). Charts, drawings, and photos illustrate how hipsters determine the coolness of a music venue and the facial characteristics that prevent them from conventional attractiveness. Though Ehrlich and Bartz can point out hipsters' social contributions (a rejection of any cultural output that achieves popularity is "necessary for society to create new and varied forms of entertainment"), their contemptuous tone too often veers toward nastiness; anyone but other resentful hipster haters may find these scathing passages more snarky than funny.
