I Suck at Girls

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From the #1 New York Times bestseller author of Sh*t My Dad Says, Justin Halpern, comes a laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching collection of personal stories about relationships with the opposite sex, from a first kiss to getting engaged and all the awkward moments in between. With Sh*t My Dad Says, Halpern brought his brand of talented comedic writing to the world. Now, with this equally poignant, hilarious, and provocative memoir, he establishes himself as one of popular writing’s great humorists among the likes of David Sedaris, Sarah Vowell, and David Rakoff. Fans of biting, honor-infused memoirs such as Me Talk Pretty One Day and Assassination Vacation will find Halpern’s I Suck at Girls an unforgettable journey into the best and worst moments of one man’s adventures in romance.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 30, 2012 – In a bittersweet twist of fate, it was a breakup that sent Halpern on the path that would result in over 3 million Twitter followers, a #1 New York Times bestseller (ShH t My Dad Says), a TV deal, and ultimately, something like happiness. Beginning with the end of the relationship that resulted in him returning home to live with his father whose irreverent, profanity-laden quips and advice was the soul of ShH t My Dad Says Halpern recounts his romantic fumbles in this terrifically entertaining memoir that begs for a turn on the screen (the rights have already been sold). A gifted storyteller, Halpern sheepishly relates one embarrassing event after another: stealing porn from hobos, "each of whom looked like Nick Nolte rendered in beef jerky;" a white-knuckle ride in his quest for a driver's license so he can take the car to the homecoming dance; and even a stint working at Hooters in an effort to connect with the fairer sex. Fans of his previous work will slide right into this one, as Halpern Sr. is a frequent commenter on the proceedings, and his priceless and profane bon mots are too good to pass up in this light and charming rom-com of a memoir.

Very good read

Quick read, very entertaining!

6.5 out of 10

Wish I would have read this first prior to &@$@ my dad says. My expectations were way too high. Quick read. Moderately entertaining.

Funny and Quick Read

First and foremost I don't remember the last time I finished a book cover to cover. I have big hopes of reading things I'm very much intrigued by but for one reason or another I normally never make it past the 3/4 mark. That being said, I read this book in 4 days, in it's entirety. It reminded me of failures and successes in my own life that made me the man I am today, and did so with plenty of humor and wisdom.
