Tha MacFhionghuin a’ toirt dhuinn sealladh air cuid de bhàrdachd agus smuaintean cumhachdach is cudromach bho inntinn fìor iongantach, o dhuine bho linn fad air ais an eachdraidh agus o àite fad’ air falbh, ach fear le faclan a bhios fhathast buntainneach do ‘r beatha làitheil an-diugh. Obair mhath, air a cur gu math, agus airidh air aire farsaing. Molaidh mi dhan t-saoghal i. Ach bithibh faiceallach—faodaidh i smaoineachadh domhain a thoirt oirbh!
—Aonghas MacLeòid, Còbh Anndra, Ceap Breatainn, AN 

MacKinnon gives us an insight into some powerful and important poetry and thoughts from a truly remarkable mind, that of a man from a distant past and a far away place, but one whose words still resonate with everyday life today. A fine and well put together piece of work, worthy of widespread attention. I recommend it to the world. Beware—it will make you think.
—Angus MacLeod, Goose Cove, Cape Breton, NS
