    I've only read one other book of taxi memoirs, 'My flag is Down- The Diary of a New York Taxi Driver' by James Maresca-- written 1951 or so. I read a beat up old copy of it when I was a taxi driver and enjoyed it, but nowhere near as much as I liked 'On the Move' by Ray Reigstad. His descriptions and encapsulations of being a city cab driver are right on the money and have an excellent flow to them--it's like you're riding with him in the passengers seat as you both prowl the night, wondering what's coming up next. There is also a real sense of time travel as you ride up and down those MNPLS streets in the late 80's and early nineties, the street life, late night weirdos, hustlers, working Joes and Janes, people of all stripes and stratus. It's as complete a portrayal of cab-life as you're likely ever to read, and especially compelling are Reigstad's descriptions and follow-ups of fellow cabbies, dispatchers, owners and friends. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in what...
