Book: Don't Tell Mum I Work on the Rigs by Paul Carter


I picked this one up because I work in the Oil & Gas sector and wanted to know more about life on the rigs. The book doesn't offer much by way of quotables but it is very snappy with no filler, and Carter knows how to keep the reader hooked - he focuses on the gruesome (there are several deaths along the way), the hair-raising, and the hilarious, and offers lots of interesting observations about all the different countries he visits; it's a long list including the likes of Australia, Japan, Singapore, Scotland, Brunei, Nigeria, Philippines, China, Russia.
