Appleton Schneider

about this book: Trucking. My years and tears as a driver.

The "high-speed time-lapse self-destruction" of nightly trips from Boston to New Jersey and back for -- and the rest of the 30+ years in traffic jams and too-small delivery areas delivering freight in the metropolitan Boston area.

Want to be a truck driver? This book must be read. What it's actually like to be behind the wheel and behind the eight-ball with lunatic mid-management morons isn't part of driver-school curriculum.

Think the drivers of those big rigs are land-level equivalents to commercial airline pilots? This book is a must-read to clear up such misconceptios.

But as well as the truck driver content and concern (based on my experiences), THIS IS A BOOK THAT SHOULD BE READ BY THOSE IN THE MANAGEMENT ECHELONS OF THE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY.

The inefficiency, waste, damage, and worse I relate might be of value -- an enlightenment to what seems a plague (or curse or infection) of the whole trucking business, not just the company I worked for.

THRIVING ON truckin' CHAOS: a fun and in places funny read, but an informative and possibly important revelation of endemic industry incompetence from a comprehensive consideration . . .by a competent commentator thereon.

Me.
