I Suck at Girls
"Human beings fear the unknown. So, whatever's freaking you out, grab it by the balls and say hello. Then it ain't the unknown anymore and it ain't scary. Or I guess it could be a shitload scarier." Fans of the #1 bestseller Sh*t My Dad Says will recognize the always-patient voice of Justin Halpern's dad as it crackles through the pages of this hysterical new book. The story begins when Justin takes his dad out to lunch to announce that he's decided to propose to his girlfriend. "You've been dating her for four years," his dad replies. "It ain't like you found a parallel fucking universe." But eventually he gives Justin some advice: that he should take a day off and think back over everything he's learned in life about women, relationships, and himself before making his decision. And that's just what Justin does--revisiting everything from his disastrous childhood crushes to the night he finally lost his virginity while working as a dishwasher at Hooters. I Suck at Girls is full of his dad's patented brand of wisdom. But it's also full of new characters just as funny as his dad--from his brother, who provides insights into wedding night rituals ("You stand in one corner of the room, and she stands in the other. You each take off one piece of clothing at a time") to his first boss, who warns Justin to man up: "That's what a man does. He takes his shots and then he scrubs the shit out of some dishes." The result is a pilgrim's progress through the landscape of sex and love--by one of the funniest writers at work today.

This book was so funny! I literately sat and read this in one sitting, laughing out loud for most of the book. His dad was my favorite. Sh*t my dad says is JUST as funny!

More of the same from Halpern and his Dad. Not for the easily offended.

This book cracked me up. I thought it was going to be one of those chuckle-in-your-head reads, but it turned me into the giggling stranger in the coffeeshop. While at times this book reads like Part Two of Sh*t My Dad Says, it still does not disappoint. A quick and contagious read, I Suck At Girls turned out to be a perfect summer book.

"Sh*t My Dad Says" was funny (the book, not so much the TV show). But this book is so much better! Absolutely Hilarious !

a very entertaining account of the recollections of a young man's experiences with the opposite sex, from primary school days and to his present wife.

The relationship and communications with his father are a thing to treasure!
