When I was a kid I had two dreams for when I grew up: I would be either a symphony musician or a long haul trucker. How I ended up a bookseller is anyone's guess, but the romance of the road has remained with me, so I was a natural for the Long Haul. Finn Murphy tells a great story of a life lived on his own terms. After dropping out of college he took up with a long distance mover and built a career as a mover of wealthy executive types and earning a six figure living for himself. Murphy is a natural story teller and his book never sags. This is a great summer read.
