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 f*****g."
"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.
WELL WORTH IT! This book is great! I would read it every night before I went to bed. I would find my self reading for hours! I would be so glued to the book that I would forget what time it was! I member I once read this book from 8:00 to 1:00 in the morning, laughing so hard that I would cry! I explain what's happing in the book to my dad all the time! And when I finished it I felt like I need to read it a hundred more times, because i felt so empty not looking forward to reading it every night! WELL WORTH IT!
Funny and heartwarming
My girlfriend downloaded the sample. I am not sure why, but I am glad she did. I read the sample and found myself bursting out laughing. I decided to buy the book. It is well worth it. I burst out laughing many more times. I ended up liking Sam a lot and I found myself agreeing with him, I think 100% of the time. I have never had reason to tweet before I read this book. I will now.
Everybody needs to laugh. Everybody needs to read this book...
I downloaded and read this book in a day, and I have started following his twitter account so I could see some more of the quotes
