A serious read for those who strive to improve
What made the experience of listening to Waking up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race the most enjoyable?
It's a vivid walk through of what it means to be a part of the white race and how that privilege not only influences us as individuals, but the entire social construct of which we are a part.
What other book might you compare Waking up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race to and why?
Just Mercy, by Bryan Stevenson -- another personal story of how the white social construct impacts people of lower incomes and color.
Have you listened to any of Debby Irving’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes. Extreme in that I view it as a required reading for all white people who are serious about changing the current race issues of our nation.

A must read for white people
I listened to this book as part of our defeating white supremacy class in my mostly white, suburban UU church. As someone who has just recently woken up to my privilege in the last few years this book was a tremendous tool to push myself not only in this area but in all my relationships. I foresee myself adding this to my list of books I revisit and will share with my daughter ans family.
