Review:

"A book that could be called Zen and the Art of Bicycle Messengering . . . Just try to ignore [Culley's] story. . . . He lived to tell the tale, and it's a great one." --The Arizona Republic

"The Immortal Class deftly blends high theory with adrenaline-spiked tales from the front . . . that offer a fascinating look at a landscape few office workers ever glimpse." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Culley has written a paean to his profession."--Chicago

"An ever-kinetic prose straddling narrative and polemic, with an ear all the while for the small pebbles slipping beneath its feet."--The Seattle Times

"Fresh . . . On the frenzied rawness of courier life, Mr. Culley excels . . . Lively prose."--The Economist
