Reviews from Amazon:

Freight Doggin,
Hilarious book that opens your eyes to the fringes of aviation. Colorful characters and plenty of high jinx will keep you turning the pages quickly. If you have ever even though of being a pilot this is a must read! I can only hope that the author will come out with more novels. - reviewer

Oh, the memories!,
I saw the cover of this book and knew I had to read it. I used to fly checks back in the day and this book brings back some good memories! This book kept me laughing the whole time. For being the authors first book, this was fantastic. The characters in this book were classic "freight dogs". This book was a very easy read. - reviewer

I'm not a pilot but I found this book on the kindleboards and it looked interesting. The book was extreamely creative, especially for a new author. I loved the characters, The Co is my favorite. And The One Gallon Challenge was one of the funniest things I've ever read. - reviewer

Funniest flying book I ever read!,
Being a pilot myself I love any book dealing with flying. I can honestly say "Hauling Checks" is the funniest I've read. I couldn't put it down. The characters are so colorful and full of life and the classic "Freight Dog" mentality. I found myself, many times, laughing out loud at the many antics depicted. A truly wonderful book for a first time author. Hope to see more of this author's works in the future! I was very pleased to see this book come out for the Kindle. - reviewer

A Former Freight Dawg Remembers!,
Alex Stone knows his freight dawgs and bottom-feeder freight companies! This book, a quick read, tells some of the odd-ball stories floating around the freight world. A fun read if you're a former (or current) freight dawg...we KNOW or have heard of people like those who populate Alex's book. Great Christmas gift for the aviator in your family or for a fun weekend read. - reviewer

Aviation at its Finest,
A funny, exaggerated look into a freight airline company and all of their over looked problems. Lots of hilarious segments will have your attention right from the get go and the page turning will not stop. An awesome read whether you are an airline pilot, "freight dog", or even if you've never flown in your life. This book is awesome. - reviewer

Extremely funny and entertaining book, I couldn't put it down and read it in 2 short days. It's one of those books where you wish there were more pages. - reviewer

Excellent read!,
This book had me laughing out loud from page one all the way to the end. The quick wit and hilarious characters made the book a very enjoyable read. I highly recommend this book for any pilot- and for anyone that has flown freight it is a must read. - reviewer

Aviation meets "The Hangover",
"Hauling Checks" is the story of a horribly disfunctional freight airline in it's twilight. Hilarity ensues as the moraly questionable employees of Checkflight make all the wrong descisions, finding themselves in one predicament after another. The characters are memorable and the laughs are non-stop. Highly recommended!!! - reviewer

Great book!,
Hilarious book! I could not put it down, every chapter kept me laughing! I would recommend it hands down! - reviewer

This book was funny!,
I don't think I've ever laughed this hard reading before. Go Freight Dogs! - reviewer

Raining Laughs!,
The beginning of Hauling Checks indeed is quite humorous. In the "Freight Dog" industry they live by the motto, "Any place, Any time, Any weather," ... religiously! The best parts of this quick amusing read was the pilot's conversations with the chief, and his wit and ability handling planes under any conditions, often to include going co-pilot-less, despite a lukewarm body being seated (sometimes "nut strap" harnessed) in the co-pilot's seat. I couldn't help but to keep thinking that this man (the pilot) needs to fly for major commercial airlines, where his service would be appreciated. This made the ending most rewarding to hear what became of his career. A misbehaving, enjoyable light read. - reviewer

Dogs Don't Fly, but some dudes fly checks,
This book was funny from start to finish. If any of it is true I will eat my headset. But seriously, you will enjoy the story. It is well written and you cannot put it down once you start reading. Buy this book and see the funny side of the crazy thing we do when we strap on a little airplane and sail off into the wild blue yonder. - reviewer
