Product description

Review

A romper-stomper of the world's oil rigs. Highly enjoyable, Herald

Full of colourful stories and anecdotes accumulated over almost two decades working the oil rigs., TNT Magazine

A Boy's Own yarn from the front line of the oil industry., Men's Style

Not so much a thriller as a driller, Don't Tell Mum is our tip for Bloke's Book of the Year, Sunday Telegraph

Madness and Mayhem -- Tony Wheeler, founder of Lonely Planet

A kind of modern-day Indiana Jones, Sunday Tasmanian

Great two-fisted writing from the far side of hell. -- John Birmingham

A unique look at a gritty game. Relentlessly funny and obsessively readable. -- Philip Noyce

Book Description

A take-no-prisoners approach to life has seen Paul Carter heading to some of the world's most remote, wild and dangerous places as a contractor in the oil business. Amazingly, he's survived (so far) to tell these stories from the edge of civilization.

AUDIBLE FREE TRIAL
Includes your first audiobook free, a bonus book selected by our editors, unlimited access to exclusive podcasts and more. $16.45/mo after 30 days. Cancel anytime. Learn more >
