Product Description

Product Description


"One of the most beautiful things I have ever read. Ever."
- BT (Grammy Nominated Composer and Technologist)

"This is me. This is you. This is us. This is every human being, past and present, old and young, of every ethnicity, race and faith. Our every complex human emotion translated into words. Someone knows and someone understands. This is the essence of what it truly means to be human."
- Ethar El-Katatney (CNN African Journalist Of The Year, award-winning journalist, blogger and author.)

"The magnificent beauty of I Wrote This For You is quite simply this: the book is elegantly incomplete without you. No one else in the world can read it the way you do. No one."
- Matthew E. May (The Elegant Solution, In Pursuit Of Elegance, The Shibumi Strategy)

About the Book

"I need you to understand something. I wrote this for you. I wrote this for you and only you. Everyone else who reads it, doesn't get it."

Started 2007, I Wrote This For You is an acclaimed exploration of hauntingly beautiful words, photography and emotion that's unique to each person that reads it. This book gathers together nearly 200 of the most beautiful entries into four distinct chapters; Sun, Moon, Stars, Rain. Together with several new and exclusive entries that don't appear anywhere else, each chapter of I Wrote This For You focuses on a different facet of life, love, loss, beginnings and endings.

Format:Kindle Edition
I guess there are many ways to read this book, or any other piece of writing by Iain S. Thomas. If you want to ruin the simple pleasure of reading words and poems that are easy to relate to and take into your own world, you can see it all as a very smart marketing strategy. The way he consciously write so that it can reach as many as possible and so that as many as possible can relate and say "that's about me!". But I also think Iain has and is creating something beautiful in the way he's making poetry accessible for the bigger audience, not just for literature-people. It doesn't have to be super deep with complicated words. He's taking 'writing' back to telling stories the simple way, speaking in a language we all understand.
What I loved the most about this book was that since all the writings are left quite open without clear endings, they are perfect for writing-inspiration. I always found myself "finishing" the short little story he had started and it's just great small flash-fiction pieces to throw you into the start of your own writing.

I'm very aware of the fact that Iain is a genius when it comes to marketing, but when I read this book I still forgot about it and could definitely lose myself in the simple beauty of words.

Really liked the images, and every word is both touching, and extremely relevant. It certainly is worth another read. Maybe more than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Special and Fragile! 25 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved it. It's a very special one , a keeper! The whole concept was loveable and Iain's words are phenomenal. Haven't read anything like this before.
My only concern was abou the paperback. The condition was good, it was obviously a brand new copy but some pages were already off when it got in my hands and some others got off during reading. But i think it was a press matter and doesn't have to do with the store I got it from , the staff , the post or the amazon in general.
I strongly recommend this ! Can't wait for part II !

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 29 Dec. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Honestly it would have been better if the pages weren't bleach white like typical A4 paper, but aged yellow and coarse. Adds to the mood.
The content is of course, flawless.
