Welcome to a very different kind of trucking book.
Knowledge is power. Let this book walk you through each step in your truck driving career from prospective student to becoming a trainer.
Trust me - It was really tough for me to learn how to drive a truck and get my CDL. It was even tougher dealing with a company that often did not have my best interests at heart. I had to learn by costly trial and error without a mentor to guide me. I wrote this book for you because I don't want you to suffer this same fate.
Please allow me to be your guide to help you avoid the pitfalls that await the unwary.
If you are considering getting a Class A Commercial Driver's License (CDL), read Secrets the Trucking Companies Don't Want You to Know! before making a decision to become a truck driver.
Trucking companies paint a deceptively tantalizing picture of the profession. They have to, because they have a huge driver turnover and need to constantly recruit and train new prospects to take the place of those who have moved on to more suitable professions.
Listen to this book and learn the truth about what it is really like to drive a truck. Allow this book to guide you through the minefield of trucking choices. Learn to sidestep being brainwashed into making choices that only benefit the company. You will emerge not just unscathed, but victorious!

Driving is a good job, but trucking sucks what she has to tell is true I have heard her story from seasoned drivers many times and from students too .
This book is great for only the very beginner. Very well narrated too. However, the title can be misleading for those looking to know the deeper truths of the mechanics of the transportation industry. I mean, I learned more just talking with 2 driver trainers with 5 and 10 yrs exp. about the hard numbers of the job.
I am not a driver but I am currently going through training with a family owned company to get a CDL. I would not recommend anyone looking to get their commercial drivers license who plans to make money being a CDL Class A driver, read or listen to this book. I didn't like what Yvonne had to say, she obviously has a bias towards her experience and she would like you to believe that she is summing up the trucking business in this book. Yvonne's intension may have been good in informing people to not be so naive, but attempting to sum up in a long, over the top, extended paragraph the complicated and diverse business of trucking, hauling or carriages is naive in itself. If you do read this book please continue to do your own research and know that you may never be over educated, as Miss Yvonne implies truck drivers tend not to be.
