“This book is ridiculously hilarious, and makes my father look like a normal member of society.”

—Chelsea Handler

“Read this unless you’re allergic to laughing.”

—Kristen Bell

“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.”

—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 son’s relationship with his foul-mouthed father by the 29-year-old comedy writer who created the massively popular Twitter feed of the same name.


In the summer of 2009, Justin Halpern created a Twitter account as a way to archive his father's no-holds-barred, expletive-ridden words of wisdom. Within a month, @shitmydadsays became an Internet sensation. More than 2.5 million people currently follow Sam Halpern's musings on Twitter and Facebook alone.

Justin's first book, Sh*t My Dad Says (HarperCollins / ItBooks), a collection of essays about growing up with his unapologetically honest father, is a #1 New York Times bestseller.

Justin is also the creator of $#*! My Dad Says (WarnerBros/CBS), a sitcom starring William Shatner, Nicole Sullivan, Will Sasso, and Jonathan Sadowski. He serves as the show's co-executive producer along with his writing partner Patrick Schumacker.

Justin currently splits his time between Los Angeles and his parents' home in San Diego.


REVIEW:
I've followed the Twitter feed since it came out, and I always wanted to read the book. It just so happened to go on sale at Amazon and I bought a copy. 
I'm so glad that I did too! I laughed out loud so many times! Honestly, I connect with Justin more than you know. My step-dad was just like Justin's dad. He had a quip for everything. There was one part in the book that I felt a little deja vu. My step-dad said close to the same thing. It was great to re-live that memory, especially since my step-dad has passed.
I need to look for more from Justin. He really is a talented writer.

5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
