At forty years old, a successful writer, husband and father, no longer toiling on offshore drilling rigs, was Paul Carter happily nestled in the cotton wool of suburban life enjoying the fruits of his labour? Was he f**k!

With his manic life left far behind and the perfect opportunity to take it easy stretched before him what else would a middle-aged, bike obsessed, man want? Yes, that's right, he'd want to be the first guy to ride around Australia on an underpowered experimental motorcycle that runs on used cooking oil, wouldn't he? Preferably without getting hit by a semi-trailer full of bridge parts. Is he out of his mind? Quite possibly. Carter is back to his old balls-to-the-wall style of writing, prepare to laugh out loud.

    " Great read. Plenty of laugh out loud moments but perhaps not as many as his first book, Dont tell my mum I work on the rigs, she thinks I'm a piano player in a whorehouse. There isnt much to this one, its a quick read but well worth it all the same. "

    " I found this an interesting read, although I was lost in places, its a very 'manly' book in my opinion. I didn't enjoy it as much as his previous books "

    " Paul Carter's first two books are excellent and I've recommended them to everyone when conversation has hit upon favourite books. I don't think this book is up there with these two but it kept me entertained on a flight. If you've not read any od PC's books, start with "Don't Tell Mum". "

    " Not as good as his first two books but still very entertaining. The scenes including the cockroach and the Longreach hospital had me laughing out loud on the train. I certainly hope that there are more books to come from Paul Carter. "
