Audie Award Nominee, Humor, 2013
"Human beings fear the unknown. So, whatever's freaking you out, grab it by the balls and say hello. Then it ain't the unknown anymore and it ain't scary. Or I guess it could be a shitload scarier."
Fans of the number-one best seller Sh*t My Dad Says will recognize the always patient voice of Justin Halpern's dad as it crackles through this hysterical new audiobook. The story begins when Justin announces that he's decided to propose to his girlfriend. "You've been dating her for four years," his dad replies. "It ain't like you found a parallel f**king universe."
But eventually he gives Justin some advice: that he should think back over everything he's learned in life about women, relationships, and himself before making his decision. And that's just what Justin doesrevisiting everything from his disastrous childhood crushes to the night he finally lost his virginity while working as a dishwasher at Hooters.
Full of his dad's patented brand of wisdom, it's also full of new characters just as funnyfrom his brother, who provides insights into wedding night rituals, to his first boss, who warns Justin to man up: "That's what a man does. He takes his shots and then he scrubs the shit out of some dishes." The result is a pilgrim's progress through the landscape of sex and loveby one of the funniest writers at work today.

I'd still give Justin another shot just because I loved Sh*t my dad says so much
I might not. It was a little monotonous
No. It tied itself up nicely.
So freakin hilarious!
Only his other book "sh*t my dad says".
The voices are great. They add to the humor of the book.
Warning: Sporadic uncontrollable laughter may occur. A lot
I need more Justin Halpern books. It's hard to find a truly funny book, perfectly paired with a hilarious narrator.
No. I just didnt find it interesting. The narrator was fine and I cant say I was bored to death, but it just didnt seem like anything in there was really worthy of a book.
I Suck at Girls had great moments but it wasn't the laugh out loud, side hurting entertainment that the first book was. I thought the narration was perfect.
Huge fan of the Sh*t My Dad Says blog, and even read the first book. There was BARELY enough interesting content for one book; nowhere near enough for two.
Was a pretty funny book, made me laugh out loud at moments. Good narration too.
This is a very good followup. So often the sophomore effort is weak but i liked this book also. A pretty quick listen but the length was just right.
First, let me say that I am especially happy that Sean Schemmel narrated this book as he did for "Sh-t My Dad Says." The book would not have been the same using a different voice for Justin - and especially for his father. The story was absolutely hysterical - going into more detail about events which took place in the first book, as well as added new adventures. Justin's writing is superb and Schemmel's reading of this story just takes the story great to stupendous. I love that Schemmel has distinct voices for every character which adds to the story so much. I am certain people in the cars next to me at red lights thought I was a maniac as they watched me obviously laughing out loud and doubling over in my seat while listening to this book - not to mention the passengers on the seats next to me on the airplanes. I couldn't stop myself from uproarious laughter while listening. I would recommend this to anyone who is up for a great laugh and who isn't easily offended by the use of curse words. While you do not have to listen to the first book to enjoy this one, I just think it would highten someone's experience if they had the background in the first book before they listened to this one. This was fantastic.
It's quite easy going story just like in everyone's life and very good conversation between father and son .weirdly amazing.
Amazing story flow and quite relaxing book to listen
