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 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 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.

Move aside, hipsters. Your Daddy owns you. I am the Dad this guy is writing about. He is spot on.
Yes it is hilarious. Yes your Dad rocks. So he looked a little funny. He didn't care. He rocked.

My dad always talks about how he started the duck boot trend long before it became popular again, along with the jean shorts, beards, craft beers, sunglasses, watches, polaroids, you name it. This book was perfect for him to remind him that he's not the only one who used to be cool. Got a real kick out of it!

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.

I bought this as a Father's Day gift for my father-in-law because it reminded me of him. The pictures are pretty funny and true to dads from our generation, and the text is fun to read as well. It's another one of those fun for a few minutes gift books that are so popular right now, so it was fun once, but I wouldn't buy it again due to the short length.

This book has some really hilarious pictures (I bought it for my dad for christmas) but the text is very poor, it just keeps following the same template on each page, making it absolutely mind numbing to actually read.
