About this edition

Since first writing The Tractor Trailer Book I've had many conversations on the internet with new drivers and I've received many comments and suggestions. I realized that there were many areas that I hadn't covered in the first book. This edition is an attempt to deal with some of those concerns. I've added a chapter about the basics of backing up a tractor trailer and I've included a section of delivery examples on my job and how I deal with them. I also wanted to make this edition more visual, with more diagrams. I hope you find this edition interesting and helpful.
