Publisher's Summary

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 does—revisiting 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 funny—from 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 love—by one of the funniest writers at work today.

    "Not just his dad is funny!"
    What did you love best about I Suck at Girls?

    Just simple little stories, but told with hilarious insights gained thru the years.


    What other book might you compare I Suck at Girls to and why?

    Obviously Sh*t my dad says. I wouldn't compare to David Sedaris, though I can see why people do, it's a different style.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Schemmel – was your favorite?

    The dad! But also the friend from little league. OMG that part had my husband and I laughing so hard we nearly crashed the car.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh !!!

    "Loved his first book and this is a nice followup"
    If you could sum up I Suck at Girls in three words, what would they be?

    Funny
    Entertaining
    Quick


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "I laughed harder than the first book!"

    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.

    "I suck at Reading..."

    S*** My Dad Says (Justin Halpern) set a pretty high level expectation for this read. Although I Suck at Girls was a very entertaining and funny read, it does not quite match up to S*** My Dad Says.

    This book is also a great read for males that were on the more introverted side while growing up - makes our journey look easy (or maybe I am just that cool).

    Story
    "Okay "sequel" to SMDS"

    I thoroughly enjoyed Halpern's first book as well as Sean Schemmel's performance. Of course, Halpern's infamous father appears in this book as well, but now in much much more of a supporting role to the narrator.

    Schemmel still does a pretty good job of bringing life to the stories, though I do remember him making every female character sound like a stereotypical "dumb girl." Though, maybe those are the only kinds of girls Halpern has any real interaction with? Eh.

    I found myself not being able to keep my attention during a lot of the anecdotes, which I found to be filled with "more of the same". And I don't even mean the same stuff from Halpern's first book. No, no, but more of the same in terms of vaguely entertaining stories of Halpern hooking up with hot co-workers who inexplicably dump him and all seem to disappear. Watching a teen movie will deliver the same punch-lines, but Halpern's book at least is a little bit more mature. I suppose the title is pretty damn accurate, so in that case... it delivers!

    it's a nice light read if you want to chuckle inside, a little bit, and get a self esteem boost if you're feeling like you too have troubles with the opposite sex. But, don't get the wrong impression, Halpern gets plenty. Though, the book only gets 3.

    Started audiobooks years ago. Now instead of pop music on my ride to work or walk around the neighborhood I get enriched and smarter.

    "The sequel is always less exciting"
    Would you try another book from Justin Halpern and/or Sean Schemmel?

    Sure. The content is funny.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Justin Halpern? Why or why not?

    Sure, the stories are funny, but it seems like the best stuff made it into Sh*t My Dad Says.


    What about Sean Schemmel’s performance did you like?

    Does great voices, even though not accurate, they're funny


    Do you think I Suck at Girls needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope, this is the follow up book


    Any additional comments?

    Not as good as the previous book, but still ok.

    Story
    "A Good Belly- Laugh!"
    What did you love best about I Suck at Girls?

    This is a funny story of Justin Halpern's struggles with relationships. It brings back the wise-cracking, sometimes crass, always hilarious Dad - the famous one that says SH** - you know, THAT Dad. In some ways, this was more enjoyable than "SH** my Dad Says" because it had a little more of a story to it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I Suck at Girls?

    I really liked the part where Justin and his Surfer-Dude friend, Ryan go to Europe and meet up with Vietnam Joe. There were some funny lines and jokes that I know I will repeat and still snicker over, for sometime to come!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book could easily be listened to all in one sitting. It's a quick listen and holds enough attention to fill the time with laughter.


    Any additional comments?

    Another credit-worthy offering if you like sarcastic, silly, somewhat sophomoric humor - definitely worth the time!
