<p>A long-haul mover’s rollicking account of life out on the Big Slab.</p><br /><p>More than thirty years ago, Finn Murphy dropped out of college to become a long-haul trucker. Since then he’s covered more than a million miles packing, loading, and hauling people’s belongings all over America. Known by his trucker handle as U-Turn, he spends his days (and many of his nights) in a 53-foot eighteen-wheeler he calls Cassidy.</p><br /><p>In <em>The Long Haul</em>, Murphy offers a trucker’s-eye view of America on the move. Going far beyond the myth of the American road trip, he whisks readers down the I-95 Powerlane, across the Florida Everglades, in and out of the truck stops of the Midwest, and through the steep grades of the Rocky Mountains. As he crisscrosses the country, Murphy recounts with wit, candor, and charm the America he has seen change over the decades, from the hollowing-out of small towns to changing tastes in culture and home furnishings.</p><br /><p>Some 40 million Americans move each year, and very few have any idea what they’re getting into or the kind of person to whom they are relinquishing their worldly goods. <em>The Long Haul</em> is also a behind-the-scenes look at the moving industry, revealing what really happens when we call in “the movers.”</p><br /><p>Through it all, Murphy tells poignant, funny, and often haunting stories of the people he encounters on the job: a feisty hoarder in New Hampshire; a Virginia homeowner raging when Murphy’s truck accidentally runs down a stand of trees; an ex-banker in Colorado who treats Finn and his crew with undisguised contempt; a widow who needs Murphy to bring her archeologist husband’s remains and relics to a Navajo burial ceremony in New Mexico. These experiences inspire Finn’s memorable reflections on work, class, and the bonds we form with the things we own and the places we live.</p><br /><p>Brimming with personality and filled with great characters, <em>The Long Haul</em> is a resonant portrait of the enduring appeal of manual labor in the dark underbelly of the American Dream.</p>

<p><b>Clarkson is back with a</b><b> brand new book of hilarious stories and observations about our gone-wrong world. </b><br />___________</p><p>In November 2016 we woke up to the news that the forthright presenter of a popular television programme had become the most powerful man on the planet. His name, sadly, was not Jeremy Clarkson, but we might not have been any more surprised if it had been.</p><p>Because the world seems to have taken a decidedly odd turn since Jeremy last reflected on the state of things between the covers of a book. But who better than JC to help us navigate our way through the mess?</p><p>And while he's being trying to make sense of it all he's discovered one or two things along the way, including</p><p>- The disabling effects of being vegan<br />- How Blackpool might be improved by drilling a hole through it<br />- The problem with meditation<br />- A perfect location for rebuilding Palmyra<br />- Why Tom Cruise can worship lizards if he wants to</p><p>It's all been a bit unsettling.</p><p>But don't worry. <i>If You'd Just Let Me Finish</i> is Clarkson at his best. He may be as bemused, exasperated, amused and surprised as the rest of us, but in a world gone crazy, thank God someone has still got his head screwed on ...</p><p><b><u>Praise for Clarkson:</u></b></p><p><b>'Brilliant...laugh-out-loud' - <i>Daily Telegraph</i></b><br /><b><i></i></b><br /><b>'Outrageously funny...will have you in stiches' - <i>Time Out</i></b><br /><b><i></i></b><br /><b>'Very funny...I cracked up laughing on the tube' - <i>Evening Standard</i></b></p>

<p>The <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author of <em>Bitter Brew</em> chronicles the birth and rise to greatness of the American auto industry through the remarkable life of Harley Earl, an eccentric six-foot-five, stuttering visionary who dropped out of college and went on to invent the profession of automobile styling, thereby revolutionized the way cars were made, marketed, and even imagined.</p><p>Harleys Earl’s story qualifies as a bona fide American family saga. It began in the Michigan pine forest in the years after the Civil War, traveled across the Great Plains on the wooden wheels of a covered wagon, and eventually settled in a dirt road village named Hollywood, California, where young Harley took the skills he learned working in his father’s carriage shop and applied them to designing sleek, racy-looking automobile bodies for the fast crowd in the burgeoning silent movie business.</p><p>As the 1920s roared with the sound of mass manufacturing, Harley returned to Michigan, where, at GM’s invitation, he introduced art into the rigid mechanics of auto-making. Over the next thirty years, he functioned as a kind of combination Steve Jobs and Tom Ford of his time, redefining the form and function of the country’s premier product. His impact was profound. When he retired as GM’s VP of Styling in 1958, Detroit reigned as the manufacturing capitol of the world and General Motors ranked as the most successful company in the history of business.</p><p>Knoedelseder tells the story in ways both large and small, weaving the history of the company with the history of Detroit and the Earl family as <em>Fins</em> examines the effect of the automobile on America’s economy, culture, and national psyche.</p>

<div><b>The country's leading transport expert describes how the driverless vehicle revolution will transform highways, cities, workplaces and laws not just here, but across the globe. </b></div><br /><div>Our time at the wheel is done. Driving will become illegal, as human drivers will be demonstrably more dangerous than cars that pilot themselves. Is this an impossible future, or a revolution just around the corner?<br /><br />Sam Schwartz, America's most celebrated transportation guru, describes in this book the revolution in self-driving cars. The ramifications will be dramatic, and the transition will be far from seamless. It will overturn the job market for the one in seven Americans who work in the trucking industry. It will cause us to grapple with new ethical dilemmas-if a car will hit a person or a building, endangering the lives of its passengers, who will decide what it does? It will further erode our privacy, since the vehicle can relay our location at any moment. And, like every other computer-controlled device, it can be vulnerable to hacking.<br /><br />Right now, every major car maker here and abroad is working on bringing autonomous vehicles to consumers. The fleets are getting ready to roll and nothing will ever be the same, and this book shows us what the future has in store.<br /></div>
