Dolphin Way is a book that will take you on a fantasy but also on a personal intellectual journey. It can be read as an imaginative story and at the same time as series of symbols of our society, how it was, how it is and how it could be with a little extra care. A book hard to put down from beginning to end, it makes you realize that the parameters by which we judge intelligence should not have boundaries and that we should rethink the way we approach life and use of it. For sure it will take you beyond the depths of the Ocean and the last dive. – Cristina


I read Dolphin Way and it has left a lasting impression. At the time I was involved in a campaign to free two dolphins in a dirty filthy swimming pool in Turkey. The dolphins were released to Born free just in time as much longer in the pool and they would have died. They were rehabilitated and taught to catch fish again. I was lucky to be invited by Born Free to the release. You must be wondering what this has to do with the book?? As we watched them swim away together after many years together we really thought they would remain that way. They had been close in the pool propping each other up when one was down It reminded me of this story. So it was with some surprise that we heard they had separated. Thinking about this story I can only imagine they came from different pods and they had gone to find their homes. Mark has written this story with a real insight into dolphin behaviour and I am amazed at the way I have been able to relate this story to a real life event. The story of Tom and Misha can be found on the Born Free page. I urge you all to read it and to then read Mark’s book. By doing so you will see how wrong the captive dolphin industry is. – Heather


Mark Caney’ s novel transported me to the amazing world of Ocean. His characters and writing style captured my imagination from the minute I opened this book until surprised I found myself on the last page. 5* rating and highly recommended for anyone interested in Cetaceans, marine life and our oceans. Eagerly awaiting the promised sequel. – Rita


One of the most enjoyable reads for me in a long, long time. I love the whole dolphin perspective, the characters, the story, the dolphin tradition, the clan, and the deeper message to us to look after out oceans. This story reaches out and touches the soul stirring a kinship between humans and dolphins that we should already be fully aware of. It’s a story for all ages. Can’t wait for the next one, and only hope this grows into a long, long series. – Jenni


When I first saw the review in Dive Log magazine I asked my wife to get it for me for Xmas. At first I had difficulty remembering the characters…old age I guess…but soon learnt them and was transported into the Dolphin’s world of
Ocean as opposed to Man’s Earth. Mark weaves an amazing story with great insight and imagination of the dolphin world that he calls The Dolphin Way. He deftly creates a whole culture of how dolphins have survived for thousands of years and gives real emotion to each character. Sky has become the hero and I can’t wait for the next installment to find out what happens to him. – Peter


I absolutely love this book. For the three days that it took me to read this book I was lost in the world of the dolphins. I could hardly put the book down – it took me three days only because I had to do things in the “normal” world! I really cannot wait for the next book in the series! Wonderful! Highly recommended! – Margaret


It is wonderful when you find a book that is so magical it transports you away from your everyday routines. I’ve just finished reading Mark Caney’s Dolphin Way and now feel at a loss as I’ve had to say goodbye to the world it took me to. Between the covers of this book I have lived among the dolphins. I have grown to love some wonderful characters, I have laughed, shed tears and followed their adventures with bated breath. I have listened to their fears for their home and for our planet and marvelled at their understanding of deep philosophies. As I close this exquisite book I am left with a deeper understanding of our world. If you want to read something very special then I highly recommend you read this beautiful dolphin story. I can’t wait to join this world again in Mark’s next novel. Thank you Mark for giving us Dolphin Way. – Felicity
