  • Hilarious!

    I loved it, I actually read this book before I read his first. They're both great, the dad made me laugh hard!
  • Very dull.

    By Aurelia5
    This writer obviously got As in English, and this book is well written, but it is incredibly dull. A nice but dull kid, nice but dull family, except for a great dad, a very dull young adulthood, and and even more dull proposal for marriage. The first chapter was funny, the rest was, well, dull. Get my point?
  • It's good

  • Really entertaining and quick read

    By swlcmhc
    This book was a quick but really entertaining read. The characters were very relatable. The father cracks me up.
  • Funny, a great read!

    Classic Halpern. Hope he writes one about having kids.
  • I want to punch his face in..

    By Longhorn5555
    I spent half the night reading this book, despite having an early flight to catch. Just couldn't put it down... Would have been cheap at twice the price.
  • Good #2

    By Stranskl
    This was a quick and funny read. It's not as funny as Sh*t My Dad Says, but is entertaining. There are significant similarities to the first book. Would read book one again, but don't feel the need to read his again. Didn't elicit enough laughs for me...
  • Great read

    By Ashley Ritley
    I loved it! It was short but the story was wonderful. Hope there's another in the works already.
  • Enjoyable

    By 1234765dan
    An enjoyable read. There were some nice moments and endearing self reflection but the only real highlights were moments when his dad, the real star of the show, was on stage. Sadly this book pales in comparison to "sh!t my dad says," an incredible book about Justin's father. I'm sorry, Justin but your dad is hilarious and much more interesting.
  • Amazing book
