Reviews

‘An extraordinary invitation into the world of the Dreaming…Unheralded.’
*Melissa Lucashenko on Sand Talk*

‘It was certainty that drove a bulldozer through the oldest and deepest philosophic statement on earth at Burrup Peninsula. Sand Talk offers no certainties and Tyson Yunkaporta is not a bulldozer driver. This is a book of cultural and philosophic intrigue. Read it.’
*Bruce Pascoe on Sand Talk*

‘Yunkaporta’s writing style is disarming in the best way possible, never speaking to the reader with anything except earnest camaraderie and effortlessly weaving between corny jokes, mythological allusion, and rigorous cultural theory…Right Story, Wrong Story, at its core, is an invitation to sit, listen and share space in your head with another human being for a while. It’s compelling, it’s refreshing and it’s something I would recommend to anyone disillusioned with modernity and looking for a new perspective.’
*Readings Monthly*

‘The scope of his intellect is breathtaking…Each chapter requires careful reading, then a pause to reflect and digest the ideas and information.’
*Good Reading*

‘There is so much to learn about Indigenous thinking and Yunkaporta is determined to make sure all of that knowledge is shared with the world. Right Story, Wrong Story, is the perfect gift for the insatiable knowledge seeker in your life.’
*WellRead*

‘Engaging and generous…An ideal gift for anyone feeling disillusioned by the state of the world.’
*West Australian*

‘It will take many re-readings to understand everything Yunkaporta is trying to say in this amazing essay, but it is a journey I am more than willing to join him on.’
*Otago Daily Times*
