Amazon Best Books of the Month, May 2012: Sh*t My Dad Says was a runaway bestseller and in his sophomore effort, I Suck at Girls, Justin Halpern proves he’s not just a one hit wonder. Halpern’s sarcastic, utterly lovable dad once again shares his pearls of wisdom--including the best advice I’ve seen on the subject of getting married--but it’s Justin himself who takes center stage this time. Relationships provide great comedic material and Halpern makes the most of his experiences coming of age amidst the opposite sex. From his first crush (yes, he made her cry) to searching for his wild side on a booze-fueled trip to Ibiza, to meeting the girl of his dreams and asking her to stand guard at the bathroom door (no drugs, just a bad BK chicken griller)--Halpern puts it all out there and, as his dad might say, I laughed my ass off. --Seira Wilson

My mom pulled me out of line to take this, by saying "Justy, you're so cute, lemme see your little face."

The only thing I wished would have been in this book was the quotes at the end of each chapter. In his first book after every chapter there were four or five quotes from his Dad relating to what the chapter was about. I looked forward to these because they were some of the funniest parts of the book. Still, even with those missing this was a really fun read. Do keep in mind that this is written from a man's perspective. This means that some of the jokes might be childish and crude. My wife read this and liked it but she didn't find it as funny as I did. There were things I could relate to when he talked about his neurotic fears about girls and women that made these situations funnier for me. I was not very good with girls early on either and a lot of his insecurities I shared so there was that connection for me that made this more enjoyable. I am still shocked that my wonderful wife married me.
This was a very fast easy read for me and fit perfectly into what I wanted to read right now. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a lighthearted fun read. It is very funny, but not as good as his first book. Still a solid 4 star book and I am glad I read it. It he ever writes another book I am sure I will read that one as well. I do like his writing style and reading about what his dad has to say on different matters.
But just like in his first book, Sh#t My Dad Says (which is awesome), besides the funny stories I also took from the book the idea that a lot of us think of ourselves as weird or different and that we're alone. In reality, there are a lot of people who feel the same way, and go through similar situations.
This book is funny, open, easy to read, and at times brutally honest. I applaud Justin for writing it, and his father for contributing to it. Thank you gentlemen, and carry on....
Really enjoyed it. Actually, I L-O-L'd a lot of times, and I don't use that acronym much. Really only if I am texting my daughter.
I laughed out loud a number of times.
There were people in the adjacent room.
One could deem this a bit awkward, but completely worth it, because the book was so much damn fun.
It's sort of like a blend of Halpern's previous Sh*t My Dad Says and Nick Hornby's High Fidelity - a man considers his relationship history to figure out his next step forward. In Hornby's book, his inspiration to do so comes from his love of making top 10 lists, here it's the advice of his eccentric, off-beat father.
It would be valid to accuse this book of being Sh*t My Dad Says part II. His father plays far more prominently than his love interest(s). That said, so what? It's fun, you'll want to tell friends about some of the passages, and there's actually a good bit of wisdom in the hilarity.
