Overview

WHAT YOU DIDN'T LEARN IN TRUCKING SCHOOL is a refreshingly frank and delightful pocket guide that offers practical advice and etiquette tips for truck drivers.


Being a truck driver is not easy. Truckers' challenges include working long hours, being hundreds of miles from home and constantly trying to avoid or prevent hazards on the roadway. The biggest complaint truck drivers have? Other truck drivers! Especially the ones with toilet habits you wouldn't tolerate from kindergartners. 


Janet Walker shares with readers the opinions, gripes and peeves she has collected from drivers during her 12 years in the trucking industry. To help remedy these problems, she offers solutions that, if implemented, can help make the trucking lifestyle more enjoyable and more respectful for the men and women who are the heroes of our country's highways.


This little book of etiquette is a valuable guide for anyone who wants to be a truck driver in America-and who wants to know which habits to avoid as they travel the road to truck-driving success.

About the Author

Janet Walker is a novelist, former journalist, grammar editor-and long-haul truck driver, a career she deeply enjoys because of the peace, traveling and responsibility it provides. Walker's most recent book is the refreshingly frank guide WHAT YOU DIDN'T LEARN IN TRUCKING SCHOOL: THE TRUCKER'S LITTLE BOOK OF ETIQUETTE . This delightful pocket guide offers practical advice and etiquette tips to address the concerns Walker has gleaned from the men she works with and respects in the trucking industry. In addition to her life in trucking, Ms. Walker has raised a son, attended two universities, and written several books. Born in Texas and reared in Georgia, Ms. Walker admires the cowboy image of the Old West and its modern-day counterpart, the long-haul truck driver. Janet is also the author of the three-book novel AMAZED BY HER GRACE, set in 1990s Atlanta, Georgia, which brings the reader intimately close to a famous-and famously private-former Olympian who has become a school teacher.
