From Library Journal
"This readable book tells of the author's experience finding and lovingly rebuilding, a broken-down pickup truck, partly for the pleasure of the task, partly for ecological reasons, and mainly to have a dependable and practical vehicle" (LJ 1/1/77). Jerome's purpose, along with offering mechanical instruction, is to impart a bit of philosophy regarding nature and the value of work well done. "An enjoyable and informative book."

"I loved John Jerome's Truck . . . The book is not so much about automotive mechanics as it is about mind and matter . . . About obsession and compulsion, joy and doubt, rage and forgiveness." —Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times
