Double Clutch Review Review by Double Clutch Review
'For anyone who loves (or hates!) the robust Mack R600, is interested in transcontinental trucking, or just wants a jolly good read, I heartily recommend Andy MacLean's Fifty Shades of Tarmac.' - Mike Phillips, Double Clutch (Posted on 04/01/2018)
It's penned with authority and isn't too wide of the mark, any elaboration being slight and undetectable Review by Truck and Driver Magazine April 2016
Fifty Shades is entertaining, funny and a very good read that will keep you occupied even at the most tedious RDC. (Posted on 04/03/2016)
Please indulge us with a follow-up book, the stories must surely go on..... Review by Martin Hudson - Orient Group
I've just finished reading your novel and wanted to tell you how much I really enjoyed it. I haven't read a book from cover to cover for probably 10 years...... Loads of fond memories came flooding back as familiar places and names popped up.

I was working for Danzas in Munich at the time, organising ''Inner Deutscher Verkehr'' or inland distribution to you and me. Me and my trusty VW Kaefer (Beetle) spent a lot of time puttering along the Mittlerer Ring, driving past the Olympic Park and the BMW cylinder office block.

Winter weekends often meant taking the Salzburger Autobahn to go skiing in the Tirol. And in summer we headed for either the Chiemsee or the Tegernsee. And then there were always concerts in the Englischer Garten. It was a great carefree life, even though I was usually pretty skint most of the time.

It would be nice to think that you will indulge us with a follow-up book, the stories must surely go on..... (Posted on 04/02/2016)
This paperback will be of interest to truck drivers, Mack fans and other transport enthusiasts Review by John Henderson Transport News
The story is told with humour, introducing a number of colourful characters and providing a personal and unusual insight into the life of a truck driver in the ‘70s, a time when Europe still had frontier posts and custom restrictions. The paperback book will be of interest to truck drivers, Mack fans and other transport enthusiasts, and those who simply want to learn more about the social history of Europe in the 1970s.

A great read Review by Andy Stewart – Trucking
We found this new book a great read. Although the story is fictional, it’s based heavily on author Andy MacLean’s real-life experiences. The story is told with no small amount of humour – and at 323 pages, the novel proves a very decent read. (Posted on 25/09/2015)
