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.
I knew what I was about to listen to, and it delivered on those expectations. The one surprising element was how much I learned to like the father and son dynamic despite the brashness of the father. There is definitely great underlying love between them that comes through, and that made it extra enjoyable.
parts had me laughing hysterically. i needed this kind of healthy laugh and common sense approach to child rearing. my only downside was the dads voice. i think they should choose voices carefully, that dad had a really comical rough voice, probably not so necessary given the content.
If you like listening to angry old men using profanity to verbally abuse their young children, you will love this book.
Both my husband and I were disgusted with this book. Really not funny at all (and we were told it was hilarious!) Maybe it's good if you are a big George Carlin fan...lots of vulgarity and just plain stupid.
This audiobook worth every second, couldn't stop laughing on how creative his dad is, when it comes about expressing the way he sees life; also it isn't all about silly laugh, there is touchable moments too, in a way it made remind my old man... I will certainly recommend this audiobook to all my friends.
There are others of us who have larger than life fathers who say (said) crazy things, but Sean's capturing of his Dad's musings is just plan hilarious... and also very sweet. Take away message... get to know your Dad. There might be more to him than you realized.
This is a wonderful audiobook. Very, VERY funny, and surprisingly touching at the same time. Dad's a good guy, he just believes in talking bluntly - very bluntly. My kind of guy!
Dear Justin Halpem...I love your dad, I'm glad you took all his quirkyness with a great sense of humor.
Dear Readers, This is just an entertaining 3.5 hour book, and it's just fun to laugh at someone's elses father. Hopefully, you can laught at your own fathers S**t afterwards, and love him even more.
Simply hilarious. Just had to pass this one on to my friends and family. The audiobook is great, sitcom not so much.
