It has taken me a while to write a review on this book, as words cannot capture all of the emotions that are evoked when reading. "Wasted Talent" captures the essence of life. The ups, the downs, the love, the hate, the REALITY. Dickens does an excellent job at painting a picture, telling a story, pulling you into every literary piece as if it is you who are experiencing what he writes about. Favorite line is "In all seriousness,/I'm predestined/To be the best part of even your day." Indeed, the book is just that GOOD, better yet GREAT. Wasted Talent? I think not.

Seriously. Each line could stand on it's own, provoking more elaborative thoughts within the reader's mind. I read this book and many times said to myself, "You know what? Sometimes i feel the exact same way." Even the way each piece is structured and laid out on the page, adds a certain kick to it. No rhyme schemes to water these words down, either. Just straight, raw, uncompromising thoughts. Sometimes conveying a euphoric feeling and sometimes giving the impression that when he put the pen down, he stepped outside and gave a smile to the world, relieved for the moment. For those who've had those times when you couldn't say it, Jerome Dickens says it for you. Unabashedly, unapologetically, and unyieldingly. Wasted Talent, that with some help from JoVonna Rodrguez, is no longer wasted. Great read!

Though this is literally a book, I would consider it a form of written dialogue. These pieces make you feel and engage you into a conversation before you even realize you're in one. Not just any conversation but a deep one. This book will bring you back to the real truth that is so hidden in this society today. You will really think and dig deep which these days sad to say not many things do. THANK YOU!!Big ups to Mr. Dickens glad you decided to share your pieces. Highly recommend this book. This is one of those books that will forever be relevant never outdated you can read it over and over through your journey in this thing called life.

So glad I made this purchase! Wasted Talent captivates and draws in its reader from the very first page. I found myself re-reading pieces countless times because it was just that real. A few times I was brought to tears because Jerome Dickens' words were that moving- I felt like he had taken them straight from my mouth and found solace in knowing that someone else had felt the same way as I. How refreshing was it to read the work of an artist who wasn't fabricating his writing solely to impress his audience; it was real, raw, and natural and this definitely showed. Loved everything about Wasted Talent. Don't pass this book up!

As soon as I began reading Wasted Talent (the Dedication), I knew this book held something powerful in which it was going to captivate senses of mine that were gathering dust. The pieces inside, so vulnerable & easy for others to relate & yet it's HIS story, through his eyes, through his ink. For the independent thinkers & those willing to create, this publication truly does hold the insight & inspiration you've been looking for.

This book is absolutely phenomenal. You NEED it in your life. I drew deep connections in his words. It'll take you to places you thought long gone. Make you think. Make you feel. It is truly inspiring. I've read it twice and continue to draw new perspectives each time. I definitely suggest picking up 2 copies. You will not regret it. and to think, he never had any intentions of releasing this.
