Even though this is a typical guy book, women should find the insights particularly hilarious. It just confirms everything that you think you know about guys. They are very insecure as youth, which slowly declines as they age. This book works around the time period of “Sh!t My Dad Says” and explains how Halpern got to the point of moving back in with his parents. He actually did give the Hollywood thing a try but in the end seemed to be defeated by love. I am so glad that he is now married since he seemed to suffer though his whole entire life with the opposite sex. The story makes you want to hug the guy and tell him it will be ok.
There are some really funny moments in his story and you get all of the Dad stuff that made Halpern’s first book so hilarious. Actually, this book explains his father’s reasoning more than the first. This will make a perfect Father’s Day gift or Birthday present for that guy you don’t exactly know what to buy, especially fans of Jimmy Kimmel. I think the girls in their lives will be peeking at it as well. I really enjoy these slice of life books and even though there is crude dude humor, it is easy enough to look past that and enjoy exactly what the author is relating about growing up.
