I also could never quite get a handle on whether she was actually bragging or complaining about the job she was holding down.
This is actually an entertaining read and I would say buy it. You will learn a few things you did not know - as well as get paranoid about tipping from now on.
You sit in you cab and you are an observer on life. No one would ever believe what people tell to or say to a cabby.
The book is an admission of defeat but I feel she had a personal victory in her sights. Through it all the high points and the lows she was learning about mankind and humanity. a valuable lesson which she shared with you.I started my own blog after reading hers [...]
I wish her well in her new career, the lessons learned while driving a taxi help her and you dear readers in the future.
Well done! success in your next career.
Plaut wasn't slumming, I just want you to know. She needed a well-paid job, and was bored with the office. Driving a cab is work, plain and simple. Perhaps it's not the right job for educated people, but then where else do you want her to work? HACK was written years ago, but since then the economy has crashed. Former stockbrokers are now working in Starbucks. Teachers are delivering pizza.
I bet we'll see more books like this in the next few years.
