Review by: Qhaddafy on March 5, 2014 :
Bill Baxter is a simple minded man, sometimes too naive, but usually just plain stupid. He is surrounded by dishonest, weird, lunatic, and even naive people (like himself). They are exist in real world of course, Bill just unlucky to have them all, at once. This book contains 27 short stories, focused on Bill's misfortunes (and a free preview of 'Unwise Guys').

Some of the story are outright ridiculous (but fun as a fiction), like The Texan (which has been strategically placed in #1) and House Divided. Some are touching (i.e, Dr.Pepper and Valium, Exit Strategy, etc). While others, a few others, are... boring. Like Ty Cobb, kids believing whatever they saw on tv (or internet) are everyday occurance; it maybe better as a prologue of a longer story, but definitely not great at this state. Anything else are okay, though. Well-written, proofreaded, a simple-but-interesting cover, good plot, great conclusion, and all. Not quite perfect, but a great book nevertheless. 4.85 stars.
