Join Arthur Chichester commonly known as Bald and Bankrupt as he takes the reader on a journey to the furthest edge of Belarus Europe's least known country where he makes his way through towns and villages seemingly known only to th. I was sincerely surprised by the deep understanding of our Belarusian mindset demonstrated by Arthur being an EnglishmanI especially liked and fully agree with the author s understanding of people s attitude towards Lukashenko With all controversy like buying 1M cards when many people struggle to make 100 a month and most likely rigged elections people still have a certain respect to him memory about the Soviet times It wasn t all negative and many people especially the elderly have certain nostalgia for the times when they lived simple but happy lives having their future certain and not having to worry about many things Although no one in their right mind would like to get back to the USSR now when we all know that there s so much in the world to see and do cult of the WW2 and fallen heroes In part it s planted by the government as a convinient ideology we may be poor but at least there s no war going on But on the other hand it s uite understandable for a nation that suffered so much and lost 25% of its population during the warI don t uite agree on some other things such as Arthur Chichester s representation of the Belarusian opposition all of them being sponsored by the West and living abroad not knowing their own country I personally know many people and I m absolutely confident that many of them come from the people have nothing to do with the West and truthfully willing to make their country better They just don t know how exactly to do it from the book one might get an impression that all Belarusian women are only dreaming of getting laid by a foreigner to have a chance to leave the country The reality is uite the opposite Most of Belarusian women are highly moral proud and uite reserved sometimes a bit too much My guess is that Arthur is a little cunning and exaggerating his own attractivenessStill I m very happy that such a book exists and will definitely recommend it to the American and British people I work with as it will undoubtedly help them understand our mindset and culture

    I was a big fan of the Bald and Bankrupt youtube channel, but have recently discovered the "BaldAndBaldrDossier". Essentially through some internet snooping people have linked Bald and Bankrupt to various aliases from Pick up artist forums where he posts some pretty sleezy stuff.

    I was skeptical at first, but reading into it and it seems pretty legit. Makes it difficult to enjoy the book's anecdotes about the locals, when
