    Refreshing book of diverse poetry in the modern era. Some particular lovely poems in the collection, that I will be reading for many years to come. Hope another book gets released at some point

    Philip John has written such an incredible collection of poetry. It is filled with vivid imagery and storytelling. He compliments his beautiful words with much powerful insight into humanity and nature. His poetry will take you on a delightful stroll through life! I read this in one sitting because it was an absolute page-turner! I highly recommend getting a copy!

    Home truths is the breath of fresh air that modern day poetry desperately needs. Philips passion for world issues and sustainability really shines through and has inspired me to make a conscious effort to live a more ethical, healthy, sustainable life and appreciate the little things in life we all take for granted.

  4. Daniel Parsons

    I read this poetry book in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed it. The themes of minimalism, human greed, newfound adulthood, the struggles of social media and a longing for the past really resonated with me. The poet, Philip John, talks about ubiquitous, modern ideas but with a charming style that is similar to the Romantic poets I studied at university. The poems are accessible and frank in their message but deliver some really original turns of phrase and a lot of emotive imagery. A perfect read with a biscuit and a cup of tea.

  5. Sarah

    certainly rings true from the title. A heart felt warming but also frank take on today’s reality with some reliving of the past, life experiences and personal endeavours. A truly talented poet to which I hope we get to see some more material of the same ilk. Da iawn Philip

  6. Hisham

    I have never read a poetry book before but this book was fantastic, I read it in one sitting! Absolutely loved the themes and underlying meanings behind minimalism, priorities we set for ourselves in life and the genuine insight into todays reality. Overall, an incredibly thought provoking and well written book, my first poetry book but first of many I hope. Would highly recommend and would like to read more material from Philip, a highly talented writer.

  7. Glen Peek

    Home truths. Poems about Wales, Poems about the world, Poems about life. This book opened my eyes to the basics of life and that the ‘important’ things are not that important at all. I would fully recommend this book the poems are catching and make you think about your next steps in life! I look forward to Philip’s next!

  8. Brad Harris

    Very well written and thought provoking collection of Poems. Clearly written by a poet wise beyond his years.

  9. Yvonne Brewer

    ‘Home Truths’ by Philip John is a wonderful collection of poems that inspires us to pause and reflect on contemporary world issues in a gentle and charming way. The poems carried me from page to page and through various eras, places and emotions.
    I particularly enjoyed the following poems ‘Reincarnation’, ‘The Lady Across The Room’ and ‘Colour Blind’. Overall, I felt the poems were well written with hidden messages that make the book easy to read but offers the reader knowledge and awareness and thoughts about our role in preserving our planet and human race.
