If the point of life is the journey, travel it via Dharma Road. It's accessible, amusing and wise, with a few surprising forks along the way. -Arthur Jeon, author of City Dharma and Sex, Love, and Dharma: Finding Love Without Losing Your Way-- "Reviews"
In Dharma Road, Haycock has achieved that rare balance of humor and wisdom. His sense of Buddhism runs deep, born out of his own fascinating experience as a taxi driver. Haycock, the Buddhist cabbie, can take you where you want to go, but more importantly he can take you to the most important landmarks of the dharma. The characters he encounters and the insights he uncovers are well worth the modest fare. His experience demonstrates the Buddhist idea that wisdom doesn't need a temple to live in, but manifests in every sort of reflective life. -Stephen Asma, author of Why I Am A Buddhist-- "Reviews"
This book is wise and witty and direct: very Zen. Also, fun to read. -Sylvia Boorstein, author of Happiness is an Inside Job and That's Funny, You Don't Look Buddhist-- "Reviews"
When I came back from the monastery, I drove a cab for Checker in Boston and can tell you this is the real deal: good taxi and straight dharma. -Jack Kornfield-- "Reviews"

An engagingly written, no-frills introduction to Zen, the Dharma and just sitting at the wheel. -Stephen Batchelor, author of Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist-- "Reviews"
