This was not a typical book for me, but a friend loaned it and I thought I'd give it a try. I actually thought it was really funny. It's just a short book of anecdotes about the author's relationship with his father that create a loose memoir. The guy's dad is really funny and I was laughing out loud through a lot of the book. The dad is a smart guy (in nuclear medicine, whatever that is) but uses HORRIBLE language. I thought it was pretty funny though, and you could tell that even with the bad language and really blunt way of speaking he really loves his kids. ( )

Funny. Very funny. Justin Halpern shares with us his father's views on life. I don't even know him and I love his dad! ( )

Warning, do not read this book if profanity makes you cringe. But if, like me, you don't mind a few curse words, you might really get a kick out of this book. It made me laugh like a hyena. And snort, too. A lot.

A really fun read. I'll agree with the reviewer that said although the book was a lot of fun it would've been awesome if it were better written, not just a series of anecdotes. ( )

First words
"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."

When I was twenty-eight years old, I lived in Los Angeles and was in the third year of a long-distance relationship with my girlfriend, who lived in San Diego. Most Fridays I'd sit in traffic for three and a half hours as my 1999 Ford Ranger crawled 126 miles down the I-5 to San Diego. Every once in a while my car would decide to shut off its engine. Meanwhile, its radio was busted, so I only got one station, whose playlist seemed limited to songs from the burgeoning rapper Flo Rida. There's nothing like merging onto a freeway only to have your engine stop, steering wheel lock, and a deejay scream, "And here's MY MAN, Flo Rida, with his new hit 'Right Round'! Let's get this party started!"
"That woman was sexy. . . . Out of your league? Son, let women figure out why they won't screw you. Don't do it for them."
"Do people your age know how to comb their hair? It looks like two squirrels crawled on their heads and started fucking."

"The worst thing you can be is a liar. . . . Okay, fine, yes, the worst thing you can be is a Nazi, but then number two is liar. Nazi one, liar two."

On My First Day of Kindergarten
"You thought it was hard? If kindergarten is busting your ass, I got some bad news for you about the rest of life."
On Leaving My Toys Around the House
"Goddamn it, I just sat on your goddamned truck guy...Optimus Prime? I don't give a shit what it's called, keep it away from where I like to put my ass."
