I have just had a quick look at Alice’s new book “The Driver” I am impressed that Alice has done such a great job of portraying an industry which needs more positive publicity. More consideration needs to be given to an industry, to which we all rely on for our every day needs.  This book has very informative dialogue accompanied with great photography well done Alice Mabin

Neville Wallace

Anyone passionate about the trucking industry needs to buy this book. OMG The photography in it is amazing and the stories and different people featured are so interesting….I personally like the outback trucker type blokes but every story is interesting. Got a bloke in your life who will be needing a birthday, father’s day or christmas present? ORDER this book, LOVE IT! Congratulations and well done to the lady who travelled around Aus and NZ compiling such wonderful stories and photos!

Bought this big book today, I’m not into reading but after first page I instantly fell in love with it, You did a great job on it Alice

Finally got my hands on a copy of The Driver! This book has far exceeded my expectations by a long shot. As you turn the pages the ooh’s and ahh’s become more frequent and to open up and see the company I drive for (Emerald Carrying Co.) is featured alongside the likes of outback truckers stars Steve Grahame and Yogi from Kendall Trucking just puts the icing on the cake! It’s great to see a publication about the transport industry being portrayed in a POSITIVE light and this book does that and shows the dedication and pride of everybody involved.

Alice, I bought your book off you at the KW truck show on Saturday. The book is a credit to you, keep up the good work.

The Driver is a great book depicting the true essence of the transport industry across Australia and its diversity. There is an incredible range of characters in the book who do amazing things to achieve their goals or to help others in multiple communities. We have great pleasure in presenting this book to our customers as a gift and it’s nice to see it on display when we go to visit them! I highly recommend this book as a gift or for keepsake.

Dear Al! I am so happy! The Driver Books have arrived – Everything perfect. Congratulations: superb job. Cheers!

Sabine from Germany

I received the book in today’s mail. A brilliant montage of photographs and write ups on those featured.
The wait was certainly worth it. Thank you so much.

There’s nothing like sitting on the veranda on a hot winters day, with a copy of ‘The Driver’, and an ice cold beer, which was delivered on the back of a truck. It’s amazing what these men and women do day in and day out to ensure that every load is delivered in one piece. As they say ‘Without trucks, Australia Stops’. This is so true. I respect what these guys do. Thanks again for a great read.

As a Kenworth dealer and member of the Board of the BCTA (BC Trucking Association) I wanted to do something different this year. In the past we have had gifts delivered to the rooms of all our customers during the Annual General Meeting, usually these were some gadget or trinket with our company logo on them but you never really knew if anyone kept them or just gave them away after the meeting. I came across Alice’s book “The Driver” and I thought it would make a more unique gift that our customers are likely to keep, or at least have it as a coffee table book in their reception area.

Picked up our copy yesterday. So worth the drive to collect it. Son loves the Driver! He’s so thrilled to see Yogi and Steve from Outback Truckers in it. Awesome book!!!

Justine Proksch

Just picked up my copy of The Driver. I’ve only had a quick flick through but it’s evident this is a masterpiece. Alice Mabin you have certainly gone above and beyond to capture the transport industry in Australia. Well done, extremely well done

Nic Hewton

Hi Alice – Firstly an apology for the muck up with breakfast today- I am sure the day got better. What an inspiration you are! We all enjoyed your talk today on the trials you have gone through to get to where you are now. While there weren’t many there today, we hope you enjoyed your visit to Rotary Sunrise. What great books you have produced; they are fantastic. Keep up knocking on doors! Check out facebook; I put a couple of photos on of this morning.

Here at Gilbert & Roach we have had great success with sales on The Driver & The Drover books by Alice Mabin and the customer feedback has been excellent. The limited editions have also been excellent for corporate gifts and promotional events. These books have been a credit to Alice, keep up the good work

Joel McDonald – Gilbert and Roach

Our copy of “The Driver” arrived today, perfect for hubby’s birthday. It is a magnificent book, and he will be absolutely delighted. I love the size of the book, the quality of the paper and the printing. I am so happy that I have just gone in and ordered a copy of “The Drover”.Great Work Al!

Leanne Mulligan

Al, our team was so impressed with the quality of the book, but the depth you bring to the customer’s business is outstanding.  You have a special way of capturing and articulating with your words and photos what we call the “voice of the customer”.

Was great to meet you last night at the Noosa Photo Club.  It was a fantastic presentation, you are a great speaker. A lot of club members came up to me at the end of the evening and asked where I found you. They said you were by far the best Guest Speaker we have had at the club and they thoroughly enjoyed your presentation with all the serious stuff and humour included. On behalf of Noosa Photo Club I would like to thank you again and wish you every success with your business.
