Fighter pilots call it 'Task Saturation'. Does it make you mental? After reading this compendium of all three Paul Carter books you will know the answer. Life is never simple for Paul. Exhilarating and crazed? Yes. And sometimes terrifying? Often. Strap yourselves in for a bloody funny ride through one man's adventures in the oil trade and beyond with his bestselling books Don't Tell Mum I Work on the Rigs, She Thinks I'm a Piano Player in a Whorehouse and This is Not a Drill. Death and toothache, dysentery and gambling, madness and a cocktail-serving orang-utan are all part of a day's work. Then, when you thought he'd grown up and settled down to a calm life - enjoying the fruits of his labour as a successful writer, husband and father, and no longer toiling on drilling rigs - what does he do? Yes, that's right in Is That Thing Diesel? he signs up to be the first guy to ride around Australia on an underpowered experimental motorcycle that runs on used cooking oil. Preferably without getting hit by a semi-trailer full of bridge parts. Is he out of his mind? Quite possibly. Smoking Monkeys, Drilling Rigs, Bio-diesel Bikes and Other Stories combines Paul Carter's phenomenally successful books into one handsome volume.
