Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern

41VfGd1TaOL__SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_ “All I ask is that you pick up your shit so you don’t leave your bedroom looking like it was used for a gang bang. Also, sorry that your girlfriend dumped you.”

Thus begins one of the funniest books I have read in a long time. Having just being dumped by his girlfriend of 3 years and no place to live, the author, 28yr old Justin Halpern moves back in with his parents. On a whim, he starts tweeting some of the outrageous things his father says. This leads to a huge following and a book deal. The book itself is a combination of short stories about the author’s life and bits of sage and wisdom given to him by his father. Even though his father has a rough exterior and no qualms about using foul language around anyone, underneath is a man with a big heart and a strong love for his family.

If you are like me, you will start laughing from the introduction and keep laughing all the way to the last page. But in all that laughter, make sure you don’t miss out on the excellent advice and life lessons given throughout the book.



While writing this, I was listening to "Tightly" from "Blacklisted" by Neko Case
