To answer the question of if I had to use 3 words to describe the book, they would be: Funny as Sh*t!
Dad. The reason being is that albeit very educated, Dad is very down to earth, extremely loving and protecting of his family and very very funny!
Again Dad, the rendition was akin to a curmudgen but I could relate, my Dad too had a lot of good sh*t in the way of advice to offer, which has turned out to be sage.
I enjoyed the way the stories were told and how they related to some of my own memories.
Dad is a work of art and a real man.
I hope this is the first of many books to come.
Yes, The book sounds like everyones dad. This guy was pretty smart
The star of the book- my dad
The only extreme reaction was the use of fu*k every other word
I think the book would have been just as good and even as funny without every other word being fu*k! I was expecting sh*t but was quiet shocked at fu*k 1 million times
the way it was narrated was spot on.
the quotes about growing up in school was the funnest.
this is the first time listening to Sean but i am going to look for more books that he has narrated.
It's nice to have a mindless laugh sometimes. Not much of a plot, but a light-hearted escape.
In my opinion, it's not really applicable to this book. It's an experiential book that's good for some laughs.
The narrator did a nice job with the voices. You do get some feel for the author's feelings regarding the relationship with his father, but I did not walk away wanting to hear more about him or his life. I just enjoyed the sound bites when they came.
I thought the narrator did a nice job.
It's short. It's funny. A great book if you're looking for a one-timer on a road trip - just don't listen with young kids.
funny, my life, so true
There were some things he said that I have actually heard my husband say to our kids.
I probably should have expected it to be what it was but it was really not that funny, like it was made out to be. Would take a credit back if Audible would give it back to me.
I have two beautiful girls. I also have a gun. A shovel and an alibi. And my boy. I used to be with it when I knew what " it" was
I simply thought it was funny as hell !! My father was straight forwad no bull crap guy just like this dad. No time to think about people's feelings when he has something to say. I wish this book was longer
I'm on my 315th audiobook since 2007. I only discovered Audible in 2010 and I find it's a great way to manage my audiobook budget.
Great for light listening. Too short though. Wish it were longer with more stories.
I wanted this to be funny and it is, in places. But once the listener absorbs that Justin Halpern's dad is a radiologist who uses foul language, this is nothing much. Dr. Halpern's comments aren't all - or even mostly - gems. I wouldn't waste money on this book.
