Picking up right where he left off, Paul Carter pulls out more tall tales of a mad, bad and dangerous life in the international oil trade. Starting with action and mayhem galore This Is Not A Drill sets an unrelenting pace that just doesn't let up, as Paul almost drowns when the Russian rig he's working on begins to capsize; is reunited with his Dad - another adrenaline junkie; gets married; hangs out with his rig pig buddies in exotic locations; and spends a couple of interesting weeks in Afghanistan.

I want to part with this guy!

Wildly raunchy and unbelievable tales of a globetrotting life working on an oil drill rig made believable by the master story telling skills of Paul Carter. I loved every minute of it.

International travel and adventure

Many of the stories Carter shares are not his own but those of other people, but are (for the most part) interesting or at least entertaining. The subject matter, comprising everything from oil drilling to journalism in Afghanistan, make for great airport listening, but be forewarned that a couple of accounts of his/other people's "exploits" cross the line of tastefulness. In any case, Audible should considering carrying his first book (this one is a sequel).
