KIRKUS REVIEW

In spite of a title that reminds us of Push, Pull, Empty, Full there's no particular conceptual organization to these photos of heavy machinery at work. In fact Hoban, who can usually be relied on to produce sharper, clearer compositions than these, never seems entirely comfortable with her subject, and her predictable uncaptioned views of dump trucks, cranes and loaders (the names are given in an appendix) don't add anything to what can be found in numerous other photo-picture books. . . certainly George Ancona's Monsters on Wheels (1974) packed a lot more horsepower.
