What's life really like as a worker on a FIFO (Fly in Fly Out) mining site in Australia?

In debt, in love and out of options, Xavier Toby's back as a FIFO with more hilarious tales from the coal face. Donk the Safety Guy, Jonno, Jokka and Dale are all back in top form, surviving floods, crazy outback driving and death-by-paperwork.

Perfect for anyone who's ever had a job, been dumped, had a drink or loves a laugh, Xavier's sequel to Mining my own Business is funnier than ever.

It's Australia's Wild West.

Praise for Going out of my Mined:

In an industry where literacy is a rare but poorly-valued commodity, Toby has done a superb job of putting part of Australia’s history down on the page. When it comes to the mining construction boom, it is unlikely any have written such a work before him, and just as unlikely that any will do it again. BEN HAGEMANN, AUSTRALIAN MINING
