Review: Uber Diva by Charles St. Anthony

Genre: Humor/Memoir


“She's sitting on a secret. With thousands of Uber and Lyft rides under her belt, Uber Diva offers a bird’s eye view of what it’s really like to work as a rideshare driver. She also instructs passengers on how to avoid getting spanked with a 1 Star rating. Meet the freaks, learn the equipment, and see how this diva survived when a drunk driver T-Boned her car. Based on true rideshare experiences in the San Francisco Bay Area.

"Uber Diva" includes educational chapters answering these burning questions:

What kind of insurance is needed as an Uber driver?

What equipment will be necessary before drivers start driving?

How is Uber different than driving for Lyft?

What’s the etiquette for passengers?

What about driver and passenger safety?

This book is the author's personal opinion and does not necessarily reflect the views of the companies mentioned in the book including Uber, Lyft, Google, Apple or Twitter.”


“Wit and humorist, Charles St. Anthony, graduated from Columbia University with a degree in East Asian Studies. He lived in Japan for 12 years and has released several well-received memoirs including San Francisco Daddy and Uber Diva. He now works and resides in Los Angeles.”


Even if you’re one of those who have never used Uber, Lyft, or any of the other rideshare services now operating in many cities, you’ve surely heard of them and, if you’re curious about such things like I am, have probably wondered about how they work. This book will clue you in on the basics so you’ll have a better idea of what to expect if you decide to become a passenger or a good idea of the potential issues for drivers.

All of that’s good, but not what will appeal to most readers. For most of you the humor and even adventure (who knows what the author is going to find when the next rider hopes in the car) is what you’ll enjoy. The author does a great job in this area, picking the rides and experiences that would amuse and entertain and telling the tales in a way that keeps the reader eager for more.
