    2. I'll leave a brief review, since there's nothing else up yet. I skimmed most of the book, as it seemed mostly geared towards trucking nerds (no offense intended). I'm probably going to enter the industry, so I just wanted to get a feel for the history. Towards the end, there's some chapters on trucker organization and relations with government.
