“(based on a true story) set a new standard for the photo book. Extraordinary photography and book design.” 
~ Teju Cole for The New Yorker

“(based on a true story) seems to be a random machine gun attack of a book, but it’s not. It’s held together by carefully (and very cleverly) calculated clues. External elements such as the postcard of clues and the ‘map’ (it’s a visual map – I found it in the end) of the book point you in one direction…you get a raucous, dynamic and thoroughly enjoyable ride around the hillsides of Rio de Janeiro, in a book where the text, design and layout is incisive, innovative and fun.” 
~ Colin Pantall for photo-eye

“The power of the best ideas comes from the intuitive, the connections that come out of nowhere (or seem to) from sensual and emotional places...not from logical story lines." 
- John Matthias Mitchum

"It takes its place as one of the best of the more extravagantly designed photobooks at a time when extravagant design is making a comeback."

- From The Photobook: A History, Volume III
by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger
