In the first story "Anger Management" the main character Harry Houghton faces the frustration that plagues most authors, even the most successful ones, as they try to get their first novel published. Harry Houghton, just like most of us, doesn't give up on his dream of being published.
The second story "The Man Who Ate Popcorn" tells the story of George (no last name) and his addiction to popcorn. Most of us know someone like George that has something they obsess about but probably not to the point that George does about his popcorn.
His third story "Fifteen Feet" tells the story of a young boy suffers though a bad home life. As so often with someone in these circumstances he tends to make matters worse for himself. The story depicts his thoughts of the way he feels toward his tormentors and what he would like to do to change the circumstances.
In his forth offering "Lost and Unfound" regales with thoughts that have gone through most of our minds as we visit one of the many giant theme parks. As you read the story you can sympathizes with the man as he deals with the overly sweet employees.
In "From Bagels to Bars" follows an average man as he face the annoyances that face many of us as we are out on the roads and in a hurry.
With his sixth story "Don't forget you change" we see through the eyes of Jack as a cashier deals with little annoyances of waiting on customers. It is a story that anyone involved in sales can relate with in their daily lives.
The final story "Have some milk and cookies" follows the plight of three friends Billy, Frankie and Dennis as they deal with a bully.
Even though these are not my favorite type of stories I did find myself hooked as I eagerly read each one taking in the circumstances and wondering if I would handle them the same way or do something different. Once you read these you will find yourself wondering what you would do if you were in these stories. I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy about how ordinary people find themselves in situation that take them to their breaking point.
The one thing I would have liked to see is that the author could have made some separation to let the reader know there was a time shift. One such example would be that in the last story there should have been a separation to tell the readers of a flashback to a previous experience as they were discussing what to do about their bully problem.
