But when his wife gets pregnant, he realizes he’ll need to do some growing up if he wants to avoid raising a career criminal. Thinking fast, he decides to get a taxi license and pick the brains of his passengers in hopes of gleaning the practical knowledge he’ll need to convincingly play an adult someday. In the months that follow, Failla fills notebook after notebook with flawless life lessons given to him by major experts, including racist sock puppets, drug-addled celebrities, military counterfeiters, and beer-drinking goats. Follow That Car!: A Cabbie’s Guide to Conquering Fears, Achieving Dreams, and Finding a Public Restroom is the survival guide that matured out of those notes.In addition to imparting advice, the book also recounts Failla’s hilarious attempts at show business, preparing for fatherhood, and holding a marriage together despite having no sleep and nowhere to live. Ride along as he performs standup comedy for the New York Mets, flees drug deals gone bad, finds a public restroom, and still gets the cab back to the garage by fiveo’clock…most of the time.
