Praise

"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, Author of The Elegant Solution, In Pursuit Of Elegance, The Shibumi Strategy

"I bought the 'I Wrote This For You' book in actual, real-life paperback, and it soothes my soul. Buy it if you can." - Laura Prudom, Associate Editor for AOL/HuffPo TV




Excerpt

Dedication

Thank you.

Thank you for finding me.

Thank you for being here.

I’ve waited for you longer than the stars have waited for the night.

Since time started ticking.

Without you reading them, these words mean nothing.

Thank you for giving them meaning.

There are many different ways to read this book.

You can read it from start to finish.

You can skip to a part of it that resonates with where you are right now.

You can leave it next to your bed or in the bottom of a backpack and every now and again, pull it out and randomly pick a page.

More often than not, I have found that the universe will help you pick the right page.

You can circle something and hand it to someone else. This can be quite powerful but in the end, remember: This is your book.

Read it how you want to.

I wrote this for you.

Thank you for reading it.
