I bought this book for Father's Day and he absolutely loved it. The best part is that it led him to dig up old pictures to show he was just as cool. Priceless.

I got this for my dad for his birthday and I think he found it almost as entertaining as I did. Of course, he insisted that the guys in it were from an older time than he was.. But still, some very funny stuff

I recently received my copy of this witty book a few days ago. I've been waiting a year and half after submitting a photo of my dad to the author's website. I've watched the progression of this book from an idea to a real manifestation and I can honestly say it is an essential for anyone who's ever thought about moving to Williamsburg, silverlake or portland. Great pictures and funny one liners will really showcase that hipsters are only as original as their fathers. Worth every penny.

Brad Getty does an amazing job making all of us young hipsters feel like total wannabes in this book. The writing is hilarious. Even if your dad wasn't the hippest, he had to do at least a few of these things. Everyone can relate to this awesome piece of prose. Thanks, Brad, for making my Father's Day shopping easy.

This book is so, so hysterical. Each picture and description is funnier than the one before. I have a very high bar when it comes to humor and wit. You either got it or you don't. This book and author's got it. Clever. A laugh riot. Genius.

I gave this to my hipster son to help him relate to his father. While it may be funny in parts, it is condescending to the children of these hips dads. Typical page reads;

TYPEWRITERS- Your did owned a typewriter before you did and he's got the white-out marks to prove it. His fingers punched keys and left black-eye alphabet marks on paper. However, it didn't leave squiggly red lines under his misspellings or grammatical slip-ups. It just did what he told it to, unlike you. SO HIPSTERS, when you're getting back to the origins of being a writer and enjoying the rhymic clack of mechanical type, remember this.... Those keys have seen words you can't even imagine, and you dad was the author. P.S. The typewriter app for the iPad makes you look like a pretentious douche.

Funny pictures of the 70's guys though. If you can handle it fine, for this family, just too mean spirited.

I'm not a hipster and I'm not even sure what a hipster is, but the dad facts ring true. Very clever, very funny, and sometimes sweet. Makes me miss my dad.

I got this book as part of my gift for an exchange and it was stolen several times by my crowd of friends. I looked through the book before wrapping it up and wanted to keep it for myself! It's great for anyone who knows what hipsters are. I saw some pictures that made me think of my own father!
