The author of this now works for the same company as me, and I picked up her book on a trip to our New York office. I met Melissa only briefly, and was hoping as I started to read the book that I'd like it, as otherwise it'd be a bit awkward.
Anyway, it's great. A really enjoyable memoir about her experiences as a New York cabbie ("hack"). 99% of drivers are male, with English as a second language so she definitely stood out. Melissa's purpose in trying out cabbing was to have an adventure, and there are vicarious thrills aplenty to be had for anyone wondering what to do next with their life.
