"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, The Elegant Solution, In Pursuit Of Elegance and 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, AOL/HuffPo TV

"A whole book of 'I hope this . . .' and 'I hope that . . .' and you think, blah blah, blah, until you read that particular hope which is just for you, it must be just for you it is so perfect, and the whole book opens like a window onto a sunny day." —Joey Comeau, author, A Softer World, Lock Pick Pornography, One Bloody Thing After Another and Overqualified
