Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy reading with big laughs Don Mctavish has outdone himself, this book is great very well written and put into a context that even non-truckers will be able to vision. there are always funny tales in every line of work but trucking has some real good ones and some real hair rasing experiences. Don Mctavish was just the first to write it down and share the experiences with the rest of the world. I think this book should be shared with anyone who drives because it gives you a look in to the cab of a truck and what we have to put up with.
