As the Uber phenomenon takes over London with its minicab booking app, destroying the trade of the world-famous black cab, trampling history under wheel and smashing prices, Charles Brickfield brings us the life of an Uber driver. This book tracks his first fifty days - from complete novice, navigating the Christmas party season and New Year's Eve, through into the so-called 'Kipper Season'. Brim full of anecdotes delivered with pathos and humour in equal measure, Bad Uber weaves a fascinating social commentary on 2015 Britain. Charles Brickfield offers an authentic voice, not a cynic, just one of the thousands who needed a job and chose to work the night shift, to tickle London's underbelly as time is called at the bar. Brickfield may be an inept driver, but he is an extremely adept author. As we speak, the map of London is live and the giant game of cat and mouse is in play. 'Five stars, old boy Thanks for the ride.'
