Welcome to Truck-Writer.com. The goal of this professional truck driving website is to SAVE LIVES by providing the best information available on the Internet in regards to education, training, safety and health for both rookie truck drivers and seasoned semi-truck driving professionals. Information for potential truck drivers who may be interested in getting their driver’s license is also available. We also provide training information and educational materials to anyone about to get there driver’s license no matter their age. Great for parents with teenagers.
My name is Toby Bogard and I am a truckers book author. My works include On the Big Road and Semi-Aware. I have been a long haul driver for over 9 years. And I am also the founder of Truck-Writer.com
On the Big Road is the book to read if you’re just coming into the trucking industry, if you have been behind the wheel less than 6 months, or even if you’re just thinking about becoming a trucker.
Semi-Aware is a must read for you and your teenager about getting their driver’s license. And if you or someone you know is about to get their license for the first time, regardless of their age, this book makes a thoughtful gift.
I wrote On the Big Road after a conversation with a rookie driver a few years ago. It addresses gaps in the industry that can help make or break a driver’s career.
Semi-Aware came about because I discovered that the average driver of a non commercial vehicle knows almost nothing about how the way they drive affects semi-truck driving. My goal is to educate others about the laws and limitations of those of behind the wheel of the Big Rigs.
I am currently working on a new book titled, What’s My Excuse;30 Days to a More Effective and More Powerful Me! Look for the new Diet & Exercise video DVD designed specifically for drivers coming in January 2011. Trucker Fitness is designed for driver’s to do in the sleeper area of their truck. It is a full body workout; All major muscle groups, Upper, Lower Body as well as Abdominal & Cardiovascular. So you want to be a Trucker & a Parent’s Guide to teaching your teen to drive are two more video series also coming out in January. All of these will be available as DVD’s as well as direct downloads. Look for both my books to be available as E-books directly downloadable in the coming weeks!
My first book On the Big Road is the book to read if you’re a professional truck driving student, a rookie driver that’s been in the industry less than 6 months, or if you’re just considering becoming a truck driver. It’s a “how to” on how to stay mentally, physically and spiritually healthy in your new lifestyle choice.
It’s packed with "how to" information about how to make as smooth a transition as possible from whatever career line you are or were involved with , into semi-truck driving. But it is also about how to make your career move a success right from the start.
It is filled with information gained by my personal experience, or from professional truck driving veterans that have shared their experiences with me. This book is essential to your success in the semi-truck driving industry. It’s an effort to improve driver quality, safety, education and longevity in the industry today.
The sequel, Semi-Aware, is the book that needs to be read by anyone just about to get their driver’s license. It’s a must have if you’re a parent that has a teenager about to get that most coveted rite of passage into adulthood. It’s equally as good for any driver getting their license for the first time, no matter what their age.
It’s an effort to improve the safety and quality of driving habits and skills of teens and new drivers. It’s filled with invaluable information on how to drive more safely and effectively around the big trucks out there on the road today.
Both books were written in an effort to improve the quality of the drivers, their safety and awareness, as well as their skills while they are out there on the road. Regardless of what type of license they may have or may be getting in the near future, the lessons of professional truck driving can be valuable.
Coming soon to Truck-Writer.com will be my newest book that is currently in the works, 30 Days to a More Effective and More Powerful Me! This will be a self help book unlike any out there today; a new kind of CD/DVD diet and exercise program designed for drivers, by a driver.
There are a couple other projects in the works as well; including a full length book titled, Driving for God: A Christ Driven Reality Check (non-fiction), and possibly a fictional novel entitled Fifth Wheel. Hopefully we will also soon have T-shirts, hats and other semi-truck driving promotional items available. Look for all these by the end of this year and keep checking back for updates.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Toby Bogard. At least that’s what most everyone calls me. Unless of course you are out there in C.B. (Citizen Band Radio) Land – out there everybody just calls me the "Family-Man".
