Nice things people are saying about “Falling”

Posted in Rigging

Fallingmy e-book about life aloft is finally out, so it is time to share some of the kind words that other authors are saying about it. Here are a few:

All who have met Brion know he has a way with words. This is fully on display in this delightful little book, rich with experience and loaded with fascinating stories. It will entertain, and perhaps educate, anyone who has ever gone aloft.

Nigel Calder, author of Nigel Calder’s Cruising Handbook, The Boatowner’s Mechanical and Electrical Manual, and lots more.




Rigging a boat can, like writing a book or telling a joke or crafting a life as crew, be complicated. Rigger, writer, humorist, and wonder-man Brion Toss, not only dares all four, but does so with romping wit and infinite generosity in his fabulously funny and informative ‘little book’ Falling…”

Kaci Cronkhite, author of Finding PAX


“Brion Toss is a rigging master, a fine writer and a perfectionist. In this book he is also a courageous man, who dares to focus on failures!

Now, as the man who walked a tightrope between the Twin Towers, falling is not in my vocabulary—and yet I must confess: mistakes have been my greatest teachers.

We learn from disasters much more than from victorious achievements.

So read and learn (and be frightened), so that you do not fall prey to inattention and amateurism— so that you do not fall, period.”

Philippe Petit, Man on Wire ,

Author of The Walk, Creativity: the Perfect Crime, To Reach the Clouds, etc.



In Falling, this engaging and amusing storyteller shares his wisdom from extensive experience climbing and descending from high structures…”

Wendy Hinman, award-winning author of Tightwads on the Loose, and Sea Trials.
