Ride Like Hell and You'll Get There: Detours Into Mayhem


Ride Like Hell and You'll Get There: Detours Into Mayhem Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author of Don't Tell Mom I Work on the Rigs shares more hugely entertaining stories of his seriously crazy, sometimes terrifying, always hilarious adventures
Paul Carter is still, well . . . Paul Carter. He's still risking his life performing daredevil acts like trying to break speed records on unusually fueled vehicles, and he is still up to hijinks with his friends and a cast of complete strangers, both in Australia and in the U.S. Decidedly odd things seem to happen to Paul Carter (in this case falling through the floor of his own bathroom—don't ask). But, more importantly, he's still the funniest man in the bar and the nicest alpha male you'll ever meet as he rudely risks all for the sake of a good story.

About the Author

Paul Carter worked in the oil industry for 15 years, and is the author of Don't Tell Mom I Work on the Rigs: She Thinks I'm a Piano Player in a Whorehouse, Is That Thing Diesel?, and This Is Not a Drill.
