I Suck At Girls - Halpern

In his hilarious, Sh*t My Dad Says, bestseller Justin Halpern shares the hilarity of his situation after moving back to live with his parents after his long-term girlfriend and he part ways.

In I Suck At Girls, Halpern continues his story as he and his gal-pal have worked things out and he is ready to ask her to marry him. He goes on to share a collection of relationship stories, from his first kiss to his current relationship, and laughs at himself all the way through.

As always, his father's take on this decision is hilarious and blunt.

As Halpern himself points out, it is due much to his ability to see the hilarity in his father's quick wit that has enabled his sudden and outrageous success, not so much his own exceptional humor or brilliance. And though this book is engaging and entertaining, frankly I felt that this collection wasn't quite as  funny as his first book. A cute "marshmallow" read for between those really great, deep reads.

 3/5- Good. Read it, have a good time and move on. Or not.
