Zayn opens up with this collection of thoughts, inspiration, and never-before-seen personal photographs. After five years of massive success with One Direction, Zayn launched his career as a solo artist with Mind of Mine, becoming one of the most successful artists in the world.
Now, for the first time ever, Zayn shows all in this intimate and raw scrapbook of his life. Never-before-released photos give readers insight to Zayn, no-holds-barred. Gorgeously designed with hundreds of full-colour photographs and Zayn’s notes, drawings, song lyrics, and personal stories, the book captures Zayn’s most private moments and his candid feelings on fame, success, music, and life.
It is the next chapter of Zayn's evolution into global superstar, told by the artist who is living it.
Before releasing the book, Zayn said:
"As you guys kow I am releasing my book tomorrow.
This book is my diary of a period that I would like to share with you all.
I hope that there are things in the book that contextualise some of the moments and memories we have all shared together.
There are things I address in the book that are very personal to me, things that I have never told anyone, things I still find hard to talk about.
It's a part of a journey I'm still on.
The good news is today, I am inspired, I am healthy, and I am grateful.
Since leaving One Direction in March 2015, Zayn has given a lot of interviews about why he decided to go solo, but in the book, he goes into much more detail about his state of mind, and the physical and emotional turmoil he dealt with near the end of his time in the band. But the book isn’t only about One Direction — Zayn also writes about the making of Mind of Mine, as well as his childhood in Bradford, England, and his relationship with his family. It contains approximately a hundred beautiful photos of Zayn.
