Sh*t my Dad Says, by Justin Halpern is a hilarious accounting of a son's relationship with his father that unfolds in an unorthodox way. When 28 year old Justin Halpern was dumped by his girlfriend, he found himself on his parent's doorstep, and at a crossroads in his life. He began to record all the ridiculous things his 73 year old father told him, and post it on Twitter. More than a million people are now following Mr. Halpern, who Justin states is "like Socrates, but angrier and with worse hair". Mr. Halpern is a Viet Nam vet, and spent his career doing cancer research as a doctor of nuclear medicine. Mix in a little Archie Bunker and Al Bundy, and you have Mr. Halpern! When I heard that a book was to be written based on the Twitter account, I couldn't imagine how it would come together, but I was pleasantly surprised with a touching all-American story about an offbeat relationship between father and son. In between the family stories are Halpern's quirky words of wisdom often laced with obscenities, but it will leave you laughing out loud. A quick and easy beach read.
