Say something about yourself!
Halpern's first book about his father was fantastic. This second work about his own life is pretty boring - except when his father makes an appearance. Go for the first book and skip this one.

The performance is great. Love the "voice" of Dad.
The first book was great. While this one had some laugh out loud moments it wasn't quite as good. Nevertheless glad I "read" it.
I was feeling down in the dumps before I started listening to this audiobook. Within a few minutes the exploits of Justin and his father's snarky wit had me rolling. I highly recommend this book.
A pretty good follow up to Justin's first book. I enjoyed the first one better since the dad is such a great character. I also enjoyed the Fox show "Surviving Jack" that was based off this book. Too bad it got cancelled so quickly.
Not listenning to it. It was a true waste of my time.
There was no real story, and I thought there would be more interaction with the father.
This book was one of the more humorous books I've listened to. It's well written and easily relatable to the main character.
Schemmel's performance was solid. In the beginning it was a little distracting as many of the voices sounded like characters from South Park, which took me out of the story, but it tailed off as we get into the character's adult life.
The reading of this book is excellent. The portrayal of all characters works, but that of the father is extremely well done. The overall book is decent, cute, but it's not great. It's somewhat of a history of the author's relationships, presumably embellished for humor's sake, but it's really the relationship with the father that makes the book (not surprising from the writer of "Sh*t my dad says"). It's not bad reading, it's humorous at times, it's short and quick to get through. I don't feel like I wasted my time reading it, but I can't think of anything about it that would cause me to recommend it to anyone.
Some of this is very funny, but in the end, it just wasn't for me. I guess am too jaded to listen to stories about boys and young men's troubles with girls. I kept cringing like I do to some sitcoms. Somehow I thought it would be more metaphorical...
