Publisher's Summary

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. This is the next fast, furious and very funny book from Paul Carter, the author of the bestselling Don't Tell Mum I Work on the Rigs, She Thinks I'm a Piano Player in a Whorehouse.

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.

- colleen "My favorite genres are absurdist humor, Sci-fi & modern fantasy, but, as you can see, I'll read just about anything. Don't mind the typos."

The lies are too obvious

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

After reading Paul's first book and enjoying that I thought I'd give this one a go, however it's rubbish! the lies in the story are too obvious and Paul's prose just becomes very boring.
There is no memorable moments in this book, no funny moments or story's just a long boring oil field tale.

I worked with Paul on the job in Russia (Sedco 600 and Transocean Legend) and worked with Ambo as recently as six months ago. Just skip this book it's not worth the time to read it.

Has This is Not a Drill turned you off from other books in this genre?
