Book Review: I Suck At Girls by Justin Halpern

In this book, blogger-turned-author Justin Halpern recounts his (mis)adventures with women before meeting and marrying his wife.  He starts with his childhood and chronicles how he learns about women and the awkward mistakes he makes along the way.  Of course, his blunt and outspoken father features prominently throughout the book.

Writing
Honestly, it was blog-worthy I think, as opposed to book-worthy.  It's funny and all, but something I'd rather read a bit at a time on a blog.  I wasn't terribly impressed.

Entertainment Value
Certainly entertaining and it made me laugh out loud several times.  If it were a blog, I'd follow it.  It's short and can be read a little bit at a time as there isn't really any plot.  Kind of like a sitcom - a decent diversion, but nothing to get all excited about.

Overall
If you're bored, or if you really liked Shit My Dad Says, then I think you should pick it up.  Otherwise, I think there are other humorous titles that make better books.

Thanks to Harper Collins for the chance to review this one!
