"It's not about why he was such a thrill-seeking risk-taker but about appreciating his success in living life on his own terms."
‑ Nicole Herrington, New York Times
"His life journey was brief but breathtaking, so it's fitting that this first biographical portrait of Shane McConkey matches the same description."
‑ Katherine Monk, Canada.com
"Witnessing him defy long odds, gravity and death is a thrill; even the uninitiated should find his unresolved father complex of interest."
‑ Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times
"McConkey is simultaneously engaging and frustratingly superficial."
‑ Nick Schager, The Dissolve
