Uber Driver Hit by Drunk Driver Pens New Tell All

Uber drivers can raise their income with tips from the new book Uber Diva.


Silicon Valley, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/15/2017 --Most everyone has taken an Uber. But now, safety issues involving Uber drivers are front page in the news cycle. While waiting for a passenger past midnight this May, comedy writer Charles St. Anthony thought it would be like any other ride; then a drunk driver t-boned his vehicle sending Charles to the hospital. In his laugh-out-loud funny mini-memoir Uber Diva, Charles offers a bird's eye view of what it's like to be an Uber driver.

In a particularly juicy chapter, Charles writes in detail about the "freaks and crazy people" he met while driving for Lyft and Uber. Turns out, people often offer drugs to Uber drivers while they're driving. Ever wondered what happens when every drunk person calls Uber as the bars close?

Charles St. Anthony comments, "Even though I almost died when a drunk driver hit my car, I basically had a pretty fun time driving for Uber. The transportation revolution is happening, and we are only limited by our imaginations."

Uber Diva teaches drivers and passengers alike the tricks of trade gleaned from his rideshare misadventure. Learn how drivers can boost their rating and their income in the book. Also, passengers can find out how to avoid getting spanked with a one-star rating.

2. What equipment will be necessary before drivers start driving?
3. How is Uber different than driving for Lyft?
4. What's the etiquette for passengers so they don't get spanked with one star?
