FROM THE PUBLISHER: New from the # 1 New York Times bestselling author of Sh*t My Dad Says, Justin Halpern, is I SUCK AT GIRLS, a laugh-out-loud collection of funny and touching stories of his romantic coming-of-age misadventures - from his first kiss, to getting engaged, and every awkward moment in between. The TV rights have already been sold to Warner Brothers Television, and Halpern is adapting the book for TV with his writing partner Patrick Schumacker, under the supervision of Executive Producer Bill Lawrence.
The day before Justin Halpern proposed to his now wife, he told his father what he was about to do. In typical fashion, his dad was unimpressed by this life-changing decision. "You've been dating her four years," he said. "It ain't like you found a parallel universe."
But his dad could tell he was nervous and needed a push, so he gave Justin some advice: to take an entire day, go off somewhere on his own, think about all the things he'd learned about women, relationships, and himself over the years, and make an "educated guess" as to whether proposing was the right decision. This conversation, and Halpern's resulting trip down memory lane, became the subject for I SUCK AT GIRLS - a pilgrim's progress through the landscape of sex and love, by one of the funniest writers at work today.
