Publisher's Summary

Strap yourself in for an exhilarating, crazed, sometimes terrifying, usually bloody funny ride through one man's adventures in the oil trade. Best seller in Australia with extensive media coverage.
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, and reason. Taking postings in some of the world's wildest and most remote regions, not to mention some of the roughest oil rigs on the planet, Paul has worked, gotten into trouble and been given serious talkings to in locations as far-flung as the North Sea, Middle East, Borneo and Tunisia, as exotic as Sumatera, Vietnam and Thailand, and as flat out dangerous as Columbia, Nigeria and Russia, with some of the maddest, baddest and strangest people you could ever hope not to meet.

Great life Paully! Loved the Migget on the velcro wall story, awesome!

A roller coaster ride through many countries. Some cringeworthy moments and lots of hilarious incidents.

Riveting stories

I enjoyed voice of the author and narrator, Paul Carter. Stories from rigs are incredible and I felt that I was there too.
