We present a recently developed theory for the inclusive breakup of three-fragment projectiles within a four-body spectator model , for the treatment of the elastic and inclusive non-elastic break up reactions involving weakly bound three-cluster nuclei in A (a; b) X / a = x1 + x2 + b collisions. The four-body theory is an extension of the three-body approaches developed in the 80's by Ichimura, Autern and Vincent (IAV) , Udagawa and Tamura (UT)  and Hussein and McVoy (HM) . We expect that experimentalists shall be encouraged to search for more information about the x1 + x2 system in the elastic breakup cross section and that also further developments and extensions of the surrogate method will be pursued, based on the inclusive non-elastic breakup part of the b spectrum.
