The book is a set of reflections and recollections of a driver's 40 plus years in the hard and unforgiving world of the haulage and transport industry. It delves into the methods resorted to, in order to survive and make ends meet for him and his family, in a world where the driver is considered the lowest of the low. There is both humour and pathos and some love and some violence. There are tales of underhand dealings, fiddles and thievery. It tells of times when truck driving was a man's world. Hard relentless toil, long, unsocial hours when there was no power steering and all gearboxes were constant mesh. When roping and sheeting was the norm. When trucking wasn't just a job. It was a way of life
