An industry leader's guide to making Lyft and Uber work for you.

In less than five years, ridesharing has grown from nonexistence into a billion dollar industry. Uber now has two million drivers in the United States, Lyft has seven hundred thousand, and both show no signs of slowing down. Despite the large number of drivers, Uber and Lyft provide little in the way of help for new drivers, who complain that there is a lack of guidance when starting out.

Harry Campbell, founder and director of The Rideshare Guy blog and podcast and a driver himself, can help. The Rideshare Guide offers a comprehensive and engaging handbook for current and prospective rideshare drivers. Learn how to:

  • Decide between Uber and Lyft
  • Maximize passengers and profits
  • Maintain a five-star rating
  • Keep safe and interact appropriately with passengers
  • Navigate legal matters and tax codes


    Campbell explains these and much more, also including funny, shocking, and bizarre tales from the road. Whether you are thinking about becoming a driver or a veteran wondering about UberPool and tax help, The Rideshare Guide by the Rideshare Guy has the answers.
  • "Few people are as familiar with the ins-and-outs of rideshare driving as Harry. His deep understanding of what it's like to get behind the wheel as a rideshare driver combined with his passion for helping others make him a valuable resource for folks who want to get even more out of their experience driving with Uber."
    —Rachel Holt, Uber VP and Regional General Manager, US & Canada

    "A guide every driver should have in their glovebox, from one of Lyft’s earliest pioneers. Harry shares all the tips that have made him successful — not only as a driver, but as a trusted entrepreneur."
    Laura Copeland, Lyft’s Head of Driver Communications

    "Becoming a rideshare driver can serve as a pathway to freedom, or it can be just another part-time job. Harry's book shows you the difference—read it and take your game to the next level."—Chris Guillebeau, New York Times bestselling author of Side Hustle and The $100 Startup

    "Companies like Uber and Lyft offer exciting opportunities for drivers, along with plenty of risks. No one is better suited to help them navigate this difficult terrain than the Rideshare Guy, Harry Campbell. This book is indispensable reading."
    —Brad Stone, author of The Upstarts: Uber, Airbnb, and the Battle for the New Silicon Valley

    “An impressively comprehensive book, I highly recommend it to all drivers, seasoned or brand-new. It’s a one-stop shop for everything you need to know about becoming a rideshare driver and maximizing your income.”
    —Randy Shear, Uber Man

    "In the rideshare business, only one name comes to my mind—Harry Campbell, the man that inspired me to enter this exciting market. His blog became my rideshare bible and very quickly I climbed the rideshare ranks applying his genius."
    —Torsten Kunert, Rideshare Professor

    “The best comprehensive guide for any Rideshare driver.”
    —Calvin Hill, The Simple Driver ***
