Justin  Halpern

He shot to near-instant renown for his first book “Sh*t My Dad Says.” It sold one point two million copies, and quickly landed Justin Halpern a TV deal.

And a deal for a second book. That’s when he realized he had no idea what to write about. And the pressure! How do you top a success story like that first book?

Ultimately, though, inspiration came — from his dad, as you might imagine, but also from his wife.

The result — Justin Halpern’s second book, “I Suck at Girls.”

His publisher calls this “the definitive collection of his humor” — Calvin Trillin fans will just call it a great read, and a fun look back at forty years’ worth of columns, poems, book excerpts, and essays.

Calvin  Trillin

What he’s done here is cull through and sort, by topic, the best of his four decades. From politics to modern culture to his mother’s miraculous leftovers, Trillin covers it all. And no politician is safe from his poet’s sword. Except maybe someone whose name has neither rhyme nor meter.

Who doesn’t like a book that really makes you think? That, dear reader, was a rhetorical question. It’s not meant to be answered, at least not literally. We use rhetorical questions all day — every time you ask someone, How are you? What’s up? How’s it going? No one actually expects an answer.

Caroline  Taggart

Except perhaps Caroline Taggart. No, actually, she has now provided answers to some rhetorical questions — queries ranging from, Do you know the way to San Jose? to Where does the time go? Her title is derived from one of the all-time classic rhetorical questions: “Does a Bear Sh*t in the Woods?”

It is a bedtime book with gentle verse and beautiful iillustrations, a slender little book of the kind found in children’s bedrooms the world over. The kind of book a loving parent will pull down and read to son or daughter at night, before that special moment when slumber arrives.

Adam  Mansbach

But this is also a book with a title people are afraid to say out loud. It’s on the New York Times bestseller list, but with the key word in the title left out.It is Adam Mansbach‘s wildly popular book-for-parents that only looks like a book-for-children called “Go the F**k to Sleep.”
