Book Review: Truckers

I review books regularly for The Internet Review of Books, and since many lucky reviewers get to choose what they'd like to review, I found myself with Truckers in hand. When I read the public relations material, I expected a coffee table book. And that would have been fine. I have one from Life Magazine on World War II that I treasure, and one on 1960's era Formula One racing that's dazzling. And that's why I ended my review with ...
Truckers suggests nothing so much as the grand old photo essays that were done best by Life Magazine during the 1940s and 1950s. If that’s your cup of tea, or bottle of mayonnaise—if you find information through imagery, Truckers delivers.
By Mary Richardson
