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 ...
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." Almost two 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.

Worst purchase ever
I am sorry, but in all the hundreds of dollars I have spent online with your company this is truly the worst purchase (book) ever. I literally stopped after starting 2nd disc and threw it away. wish I could have had more info b4 purchasing. the language is disgusting and in your description I didn't have any clue. Sh** is one thing but the rest is just unnecessary and disgusting to sell a book to an awary customer like that. sorry-loved the rest.

Amazingly funny and irreverent.! A good read for most people!

The author's story about growing up with his physician father is warm and very funny. Dad isn't your typical doctor. He's profane, opinionated and very politically incorrect. It's definitely tough love but it's gruff but genuine love for his family. Dad is a vulgar philosopher who I agree with most of the time.
