- Josh Brolin, Award-Winning Actor "Laird Hamilton is a true individualist unafraid to carve his own path. These thoughtful mediations offer a unique window -- illuminating and inspiring -- into one of America's great innovators."
- Rory Kennedy, Documentary Filmmaker "When Laird Hamilton surfs, you must watch. When he speaks, I listen. And when he writes a book I'm damn sure gonna read it. Twice."
- Eddie Vedder, Grammy Award-Winning Lead Vocalist of Pearl Jam "A powerful message from Laird on what it means to 'go beyond' and how it canbe applied by all. He hones in on the dualities of life and death, focusing on what's most important: making the most of the time we have, and living aloha, connected to andcaring for each other and our environment."
--Tulsi Gabbard, Congresswoman serving Hawaii's 2nd district "This book is like a one-on-one chat with Laird, a personal conversation about his philosophies. You can't be champ without an untamable fire inside, and you can feel that here. His spirit is raw and to the point. As athletes retire and sail into the sunset, Laird keeps pushing, finding and finding new ways to improve."
--Joakim Noah, Two-time NBA All-Star
