(She Thinks I'm a Piano Player in a Whorehouse)
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
Paul Carter was born in England in 1969. His father's military career had the family moving all over the world. He has worked in the oil industry for fifteen years, re-locating every few years (old habits). When not getting into trouble on the rigs Paul lives in Sydney with two motorbikes and a dachshund named Colin, visiting his father in the UK and his mother in France, and is constantly flying to all corners of the globe.
