Rec'd this book for Father's Day. And I held off reading it because I thought it would be a disappointment over Justin Halpern's brilliant Tweets. But I was wrong. In addition to being hilarious, the book was refreshingly upbeat and insightful.

This was far more sentimental than the title would lead you to believe but not in a sappy way. I had been reading the blog for a year or so, and the book isn't just a list of quotes, there is a developed back-story and context is given. Reminiscent of a modern day Wonder Year in book form.

Yes, it's vulgar, but it's also hysterically funny and a refreshingly honest viewpoint. I bought it for my husband, and wound up reading the whole book before I was willing to hand it over. I recommend reading it _before_ criticizing.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Okay, yes, it kind of sucks that this guy's dad says funny things, he writes them down, and presto — book deal! But get over it. The book is hilarious, and will make you grateful your dad is only mildly weird and embarrassing.

"Review" by , "If you're wondering if there is a real man behind the quotes on Twitter, the answer is a definite and laugh-out-loud yes."
"Review" by , "Justin Halpern tosses lightening bolts of laughter out of his pocket like he is shooting dice in a back alley. In one sweep of a paragraph, he ranges from hysterical to disgusting to touching — and does it all seamlessly. Sh*t My Dad Says is a really, really funny book."
"Review" by , "This book is ridiculously hilarious, and makes my father look like a normal member of society."
"Review" by , "Justin Halpern's dad is up there with Aristotle and Winston F*cking Churchill. He's brilliant, and his son's book is absolutely hilarious."
"Synopsis" by , In the vein of bestselling humor collections by Chelsea Handler, David Sedaris, and Laurie Notaro, Sh*t My Dad Says is a chaotic, hilarious, true portrait of a father-son relationship from a major new comic voice.
"Synopsis" by ,
Erin McHughs last book, Like My Mother Always Said, collected a rainbow of helpful, humorous, and questionable wisdom from our moms and has been a solid success.  Its not fair that mothers should get all the attention, so the next branch on the family tree to explore belongs to fathers.  The same crowdsourcing that brought together the scores of quotations and stories for the first book is also at work here.  From quips to short anecdotes, the book is divided up into all the sage and nutty information we garner from our fathers in chapters such as “Growing Up Right,” “The Facts of Life,” “Dads Soft Spot,” “Got It from Grandpa,” “The Sporting Life,” and “Ask Your Mother.”
"Synopsis" by , “This book is ridiculously hilarious, and makes my father look like a normal member of society.”
—Chelsea Handler

“Read this unless youre allergic to laughing.”
—Kristen Bell

“If youre wondering if there is a real man behind the quotes on Twitter, the answer is a definite and laugh-out-loud yes.”
—Christian Lander, New York Times bestselling author of Stuff White People Like

Tuesdays with Morrie meets F My Life in this hilarious book about a sons relationship with his foul-mouthed father by the 29-year-old comedy writer who created the massively popular Twitter feed of the same name.
