As the wife of a second generation truck driver, I am interested in truckers and their health. Though this book is written primarily with the trucking industry in mind, everyone can benefit by adhering to the ideas outlined in this book.
Are you ready to be your own driver? Get ready for no gimmicks, no pills, no shakes, and no miracles. This book is going to inform you of some plain old simple methods that work by design, introducing overall health that begins in the gut.
Carolyn not only has a special love for truckers, she has a gift for being able to convey this information in very practical ways. The text is straightforward and the health benefits are extremely well explained - it all makes sense and requires no special pills or drinks to transform your overall health by being the master of your own gut. The recipes are an extra added bonus, and again, very simple and basic. If you're looking for that one book to cover all the bases as far as gut health goes, this is it.
-Wendy Parker, Author and Rider with her truck driver husband
