Críticas:

I laughed so hard I cried - but there is also poignancy here... Carter captures the moment with pithy observations that achieve an almost transcendent lucidity at times, and is funny enough to frame. * Western Australian * Some people cure boredom by going shopping; Carter does it by taking a bio-diesel motorbike around Australia... don't buy this book if you're offended by seriously bad language: we're talking direct quotes from hardened oil riggers. * Sun Herald * There is so much more to his stories than simply getting from A to B. If Carter can have a crazy adventure on the way, he will. If he can make things difficult, he will without even trying. Add to this a few whiskies and a great bunch of mates, and you get the idea of what to expect from this trip... a fascinating story... what will Carter do next? * Bookseller and Publisher * When Carter eases off on the profanity and throttles up on the wit, he gets the chequered flag every time. The book is funny, entertaining and - for rev heads - informative. * Sunday Herald Sun *

Reseña del editor:

Oi, mate, is that monstrosity diesel? From the author of the bestsellers 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, this is the eagerly awaited next installment of Paul Carter's rollicking life. Take one mad adventurer and a motorbike that runs on bio fuel (cooking oil i.e. chip fat to you and me) and send them with one filmmaker on a road trip around Australia just to see what happens. What you get is a story full of outback characters, implausible (but true) situations, unlikely events and unfortunate breakdowns, all at a break neck pace. Never one to sit still for long, this is what Paul Carter did next. Whether you've been shocked, delighted, entertained, horrified - or all of the above - by Paul's stories whether from oil rigs or the road one thing is for sure, they are always high octane adventures.. NOTA: El libro no está en español, sino en inglés.
