Strap yourself in for an exhilarating, crazed, sometimes terrifying, frequently bloody funny ride through one man's adventures in the oil trade. A take no prisoners approach to life has seen Paul Carter heading to some of the world's most remote, wild and dangerous places as a contractor in the oil business. Amazingly, he's survived (so far) to tell these stories from the edge of civilization. He has been shot at, hijacked and held hostage; almost died of dysentery in Asia and toothache in Russia; watched a Texan lose his mind in the jungles of Asia; lost a lot of money backing a scorpion against a mouse in a fight to the death, and been served cocktails by an orang-utan on an ocean freighter. And that's just his day job. Taking postings in some of the world's wildest and most remote regions, not to mention some of the roughest rigs on the planet, Paul has worked, got into trouble, and been given serious talkings to, in locations as far-flung as the North Sea, Middle East, Borneo and Tunisia, as exotic as Sumatra, Vietnam and Thailand, and as flat-out dangerous as Columbia, Nigeria and Russia, with some of the maddest, baddest and strangest people you could ever hope not to meet. "A unique look at a gritty game. Relentlessly funny and obsessively readable." -- Phillip Noyce, director of The Quiet American and Clear and Present Danger "A boy's own yarn from the front line of the oil industry." -- Men's Style "Paul Carter Spins a good yarn. The disburbing thig is that the yarns are all real." -- Lucire Men "A torrent of tall tales from a life less ordinary." -- The Press and Journal, Aberdeen "A fascinating and funny life story ... Well worth the read." -- Sportsladsmag.com "Full of colourful storoes and well-worn anecdotes accumulated over almost two decade working the oil rigs." -- TNT Magazine "Carter's tales are always entertaining and offer a few unblinking apercus about Big Oil seen from the inside." -- Scotland on Sunday

In this outrageous sequel to Don't Tell Mum I Work on the Rigs (She Thinks I'm a Piano Player in a Whorehouse), Paul Carter picks up right where he left off, and pulls out more adventures from a mad, bad and dangerous life in the international oil trade. Packed with action and mayhem galore, This Is Not a Drill cracks along at an unrelenting pace. In this fast, furious and very funny book, 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 buddies in exotic locations; gets hammered on vodka in Sakhalin; watches the winner of a crab race nip off his friend's toe: and spends a couple of interesting weeks in Afghanistan with some mates who run an outfit that just happens to contract out mercenaries for hire...

Welcome to the hidden and lucrative world of tennis trading. Brad Hutchins has been living a young bloke's dream: being paid to watch sport. The 27-year-old Australian was employed by a secret gambling syndicate to follow the pro tennis circuit as a sports trader, using his mobile phone to relay results and beat online gamblers to the big pay-offs. His stories from the road would make anyone jealous: watching the world's best tennis players and partying in a new country every week, with cash to burn and no strings attached. But like card counters in casinos, sports traders are despised by the tennis establishment. The more time Brad spends courtside, the harder it becomes for him to evade the security guards who are hell-bent on ejecting him from the game. Game, Set, Cash! will appeal to anyone who loves scallywag stories in the spirit of The Wolf of Wall Street or Paul Carter's Don't Tell Mum I Work On the Rigs. 'A terrific read, and not just another 'racket'. Hutchins shines!' - Paul Carter, author of Don't Tell Mum I Work on the Rigs: She Thinks I'm a Piano Player in a Whorehouse.

Terry Ledgard is no stranger to mischief and adventure. Having survived childhood in outback Australia, he joined the Army and rose through the ranks to become an SAS medic in Afghanistan. As he endured explosive action, blood-curdling trauma and gut-wrenching humanitarian aid missions, he found the modern-day soldier's larrikin spirit was the perfect prescription for intense combat conditions. Armed with a new-found perspective on life, Terry returned to the Real World, but soon realised it wasn't all it was cracked up to be. His life became a slow-motion train wreck as he faced a gritty battle with post-traumatic stress disorder. But in a stroke of ironic fortune, he realised that the Army had taught him everything he needed to overcome the affliction, and that his most important weapon was a sense of humour. Evocative, moving and outrageous in its humour and honesty, Bad Medicine is an exhilarating account of life as an SAS medic in the world's most intense warzone.
