Ruth Finnegan, the author of several influential anthropological and comparative monographs, is happy to announce her latest book, titled “Hidden Lives of Taxi Drivers.” The book is an interesting journey into the hidden life of taxi drivers and explores everything that lies beyond the familiar urban lives. It’s an inspiring and interesting read, which is expected to be much appreciated by the readers.
Ruth Finnegan writes about the code of ethics that is usually followed by taxi drivers and the way they treat one another. In fact, she writes that the drivers are well educated, sometimes more so than others. Many have post-doctoral qualifications and are MBAs. They choose the profession to make ends meet, while there are many others who choose to be drivers because they wish to take luxurious foreign holidays.
She dedicates the book to all the taxi drivers and other immigrants who are enriching our knowledge and culture each day through their efforts. The book has already garnered much interest and appreciation amongst her readers, who mention that it’s a fantastic read.
The book is available for sale on Amazon and has been reviewed by many readers, who are happy to share their review.
Tammy Ruggles mentions “The Hidden Lives of Taxi Drivers: A Question of Knowledge (Ethnographic Trilogy) by Ruth H Finnegan is a fascinating study concerning taxi drivers. In some ways, it is a love letter to them, complete with the history of taxis and other forms of transportation down through the ages, from the litter in China to modern-day Ubers. We get an inside view, with pictures, anecdotes, and illustrations, a thorough and entertaining immersion in the lives and culture of taxi drivers.”
