An action-packed celebration of the world of trucks, this guide presents the fastest, loudest, most powerful, most expensive, and most outrageous trucks ever to hit the road.

In addition to featuring pick-up trucks, military trucks, tankers, desert racers, monster trucks, and more, Super Trucks also tells amazing human-interest stories. Readers will take a trip with a long-distance trucker, find out what it's like to be a life-saving paramedic in an ambulance zooming to the scene of an emergency, and discover how much it costs Dekotora owners to add bling to their lit-up trucks.
