Justin was twenty-eight when he decided to move back to San Diego and live with the love of his life. Unfortunately she had a different idea, and he found himself dumped in San Diego. He decided to move back in with his parents until he could get back on his feet. His book follows his time in his parents' house and the words of his father. Far from tactful, his dad was always truthful, and when we reach adulthood, that is something we learn to admire.
Several years ago this book was actually turned into a sitcom. It lasted a season or two and gave us a few laughs, but I think the book is actually funnier. The book is filled with stories about his dad, and each chapter padded with the politically incorrect quotes that dads have a way of sharing in front of their children's acquaintances. I loved the mom too. When his dad explained that they are family and would love him unless he went on a "killing spree or something," his mom piped in with, "I would still love you Justy. I would just want to know why you did it."
If the use of George Carlin's "seven words you can never use on television" offend you, then this is probably not the book for you, but if you can deal with the language then you will surely get an hour or two of laughs from this short and touching father/son book.
