About this item

After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, twenty-eight-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his seventy-three-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is "like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair," has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him:

"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."

More than a million people now follow Mr. Halpern's philosophical musings on Twitter, and in this book, his son weaves a brilliantly funny, touching coming-of-age memoir around the best of his quotes. An all-American story that unfolds on the Little League field, in Denny's, during excruciating family road trips, and, most frequently, in the Halperns' kitchen over bowls of Grape-Nuts, Sh*t My Dad Says is a chaotic, hilarious, true portrait of a father-son relationship from a major new comic voice.

Probably the funniest book I've read in my life so far. Its an intriguing, and hilarious life story of Justin Halpern and his experiences with his father. Halpern's Father is definitely an original, one-of-a-kind man.... Definitely a MUST READ~!

I gave this book to my dad and he called me 3 days after he got it to tell me how much he loved it! He said it was very funny and relatable.

I bought this for my Dad for Christmas but I couldn't help but read it myself. I would randomly start laughing out loud while reading this book. It really is funny! And you can't beat the price. I read this book in one night!
