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.
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.

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).

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.<br/>There is no memorable moments in this book, no funny moments or story's just a long boring oil field tale.<br/><br/>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?
