Review:

`a jazz-inspired song of surfing...
`Bleakley argues persuasively that surfing, and therefore life generally, consists of imparting some new syncopated swerve to an old standard and improvising amid the maelstrom, "between chaos and control".' --Andy Martin in The Independent, 9 July 2010

`A book worth reading if you're looking for a one-man jazz-infused tip-toe along the road of life. ... Sam simply shares his past, his present and his frequencies with us, which is worth sharing. He's well travelled, a Cambridge alumni, and speaks with soft tones.' --Drift, 22 June 2010

'a beautifully written book ... accompanied by some stunning photos ... packs in some incredible trips which are well off the beaten track ... A great read and a wonderful contribution to the increasingly rich library of literature by British surfers' --Tim Kevan, The Barrister Blog, 29 June 2010

`un piacevolissimo mix di surf-report, avventura (quella in cui qualcosa va necessariamente storto) e raffinata letteratura di viaggio, resa palpabile dalle immagini di Callahan.'
--SurfNews, June 2010

Surfing Brilliant Corners is unlike anything else in the surf writing genre - and all the better for it.
--Cornwall Today, August 2010

... the insights into some of the more remote quadrants of the surfing world are inspirational ... The photos are excellent, the words perfect
--Wavelength, 194, August 2010

'a highly entertaining surf-travel book ... Written with the same elegance with which he rides a board'
--The Cornishman, 29.07.10

`a vibrant collection of writing... John Callahan's photos are fantastic as always...
`... it's a pleasure to have a solid gold dose of surfing literature from some of the world's waveriding frontiers.'
--Pacific Longboarder, August 2010

`Um amor incondicional pelo surf, pelo mundo e pela grande aventura humana.
`As imagens deslumbrantes de John Callahan fornecem o apelo visual ideal para ilustrar as palavras de Bleakley, neste que é um dos grandes livros de surf atualmente disponíveis no mercado.'
--Surf Portugal, Agosto 2010

`There's rhythm and fun... Bleakley has, in the surfing genre and beyond, rare writing skills and sensitive powers of observation. He also has passion and a dexterous imagination.'
--The Surfer's Path, September 2010
