Product description

About the Author

Carolyn has been a psychologist, a paramedic, a proof reader and several other things, not all of them beginning with P. A trucker, for example. She began writing the day she decided to try and see the world...doing both just to find out if she could. It made a change from teaching CPR to nightclub bouncers and designing wedding cakes. When excerpts from her first travelogue were published by the Rough Guides she decided to keep on doing both. Carolyn maintains that she is either multi-faceted or easily bored, depending on who is enquiring. Born and bred in London, England, Carolyn and her son Ben are now Canadian citizens and live permanently in Kitchener, Ontario.

If you ever daydreamed of being a truck driver, getting away from it all and so on - read this. Entertaining, honest, easy to read; the reality of truck driving. I learned a lot.

Enjoyable recollections of a ladies trucking life. Got a good feeling of the work undertaken. The same frustration exist no matter the country.

What a great job, right? Cruising the open road, traveling all over North America, and getting paid for it. There have been times when I've thought this would be the perfect job for me. A few stints driving the biggest truck Uhaul rents, which are half the size of a typical 18-wheeler, and a few horror stories from a former brother-in-law who is a trucker, hinted that this profession might not be as easy as it looks. Carolyn Steele completed the task of convincing me this might not be the job for me.

This humorous account of Steele's time as a trucker, from truck driving school and on into her time as a long-haul trucker, is an adventure I enjoyed experiencing the easy way, vicariously. It gave me a new level of respect for those who practice this profession, and you can be sure I'll be giving those 18-wheelers a wide berth when I'm on the road. Not only a fun read but, for anyone considering a career as a trucker, a must read.

This is a true story of a barmy middle-aged woman who decided to learn to drive a huge truck. You have to admired her great determination. Read it and weep with laughter.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a view of the 'warts and all' life of a trucker and the very hard learning curve of a 'newbie'. The reader gets a sense that they are in the cab alongside Carolyn, sweating, swearing, grinding gears, getting lost and panicking! Having just read 'Truck This For A Living' I hoped this book would be similar and it is, with just the Atlantic Ocean dividing the two.

This is a book you can't put down once you have started, it's a tale of an English woman who decides that it would be a good idea to become a truck driver in Canada. Full of snow, ice and fun, Carolyn's story is a must read.

I really enjoyed this, well written and with a bit of humour, I drive a truck in the UK and Europe and found the book fascinating in comparing what I do and what the author does ( or did ) for a living.
