Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern: A Review

If you simply need a laugh, this is the book for you.  Short and full of funny and sometimes poignant stories, this book is the antidote to a rough day.  This is not a book for those who are easily offended by language!

Halpern's dad, a specialist in nuclear medicine, served in the Navy.  It's important to know this as you read this book, because the man cusses like a sailor.  There numerous examples of his father's profane observations about Justin's life: reaching puberty, sports, the condition of his room, dating, and the list goes on and on.  There are times when the father's comments seem almost cruel...too harsh to really be funny.  But there are other times when his father is tender, supportive, and generous.
