In this book, author Charles St. Anthony documents his experience of working as a Postmates courier. He highlights how the system works and explores the advantages and challenges of delivering by foot and bicycle and ways of earning some extra cash, which he term as ‘latte money'. He also shares some of his hilarious experiences along with the details of some of the foods that the fabulous residents of the DTLA eat! Such an innovative and fresh content! Written in lucid language this book engages you instantly. The narration is also easy to follow which is complemented with an undertone of humour thorough out. Also worthy of a mention is the thoroughness of the content. The way he breaks up how the system pays and how to navigate through it is immensely helpful.
