Brought a lot of memories, and had me laughing out loud at it. Review by Andy
I have just bought and read Paul's book and read it in three days. The book took me back to a time when I was just very very happy driving my truck....brought a lot of memories, and had me laughing out loud at it.

An ideal gift for the truck lover Review by Road Rover
After a successful first edition run of Paul Rowland's Middle East Transport book, Not All Sunshine and Sand, several new photographs came to light, so Old Pond has rightly commissioned a second print run of this popular career biography.
The book takes the reader on a ride through foreign lands in the cab of a long haul lorry, providing an insider's perspective on overland travel.
A tremendous tale, in which run-ins with the locals, dramatic encounters with foreign drivers and mechanical problems seem the norm for a long haul lorry driver.
Trucking camaraderie has seen Paul through many a crisis, and he shares the belief that help is always at hand when a fellow driver is facing a problem.
The new edition of this hugely popular book now incorporates 72 photographs taken at the time, many of which have never been previously published. Not All Sunshine and Sand would make an ideal gift for the truck lover in the household! (Posted on 12/05/2017)
Amusing and scary stories Review by Vintage Roadscene
His experiences and adventures, including both amusing and scary stories are most interesting. There have been a number of books on the subject, but I never tire of reading of the achievements of these drivers, overcoming all the obstacles, trials and tribulations involved in driving through bad weather, especially in the snow and ice in Eastern Europe and the Turkish mountains, as well as the scorching heat of the desert nearer their destination.
