Publisher's Summary

Uber Taxi Cab Confessions is a whirlwind tour of true short stories viewed through the eyes of a part time Uber driver. You will be a passenger on every ride, discovering the hottest bars and restaurants and the secret after-hour clubs in Fairfield County as we pick up riders and take them to wherever they want to go. Your life changes once you turn on the Uber app. The show begins as soon as a rider opens the door to your cab. You never know what personality you will have to have until you greet your passenger. You may need to be a weatherman offering the latest forecast or acting as a political analyst. Sometimes you will have to be the rider's personal shrink, and other times a comedian or an imaginative story teller. I now have acquired multiple personalities to match each rider's MO. I must be pretty good at that. I get a five-star rating on almost every ride, plus I get crazy good tips by agreeing with everything they say.
Confessions is a collection of what happens in the back seat of my Uber cab. Hear about the two chefs cooking in the back seat. Or the very intoxicated woman who leaves her dog in my cab. But one of the funniest stories is about the man who was so big, the backdoor had to be removed to get him out. The Uber concept is amazing. It's so much fun to be a driver. I have included a list of tips and suggestions for both drivers and riders that are also very amusing. So buckle your seat belt and listen on.
Included in the Uber Taxi Cab Confessions audiobook is a PDF file which contains over 35 chapter-by-chapter illustrations for your enjoyment, plus "clickable" links as mentioned in the book.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Not really hilarious

I understand that this was the author's first book, and in that context it's not bad. I did not find it to be hilarious, however.

The stories that were specifically about being an uber driver were pretty bland. The more interesting - though still not funny - stories had nothing to do with being an uber driver, other than the fact that they were apparently relayed to passengers.

The author also read the book, and was not entirely fluent. Rather than edit mistakes they were left in, and some irritating mic noises were left in.
