Product Description

From Amazon

As you've probably heard before, an unexamined life... may be pretty darn boring. You can remedy that with All About Me, a journal filled with checklists and fill-in-the-blank questions divided into 25 categories, including sexuality, ego, wishes & dreams, opinions, emotions, memories, and choices. What authors have affected you? Do you believe in God? What film can you watch over and over? Ever had sex on an airplane? Do you want to be buried or cremated?

All About Me can serve as a fine tool for improving your self-knowledge; it's also been used by couples who want to get to know each other better, and would make great fodder for getting a party going (especially the question, "Does a photo of you naked exist?"). If you're interested in self-actualization or improving your relationships, you'll find the book fascinating, while anyone just looking for a fun way to spend a rainy day or make a long trip go by faster will be rewarded, too.

From the Back Cover

The perfect time capsule for the millennium, ALL ABOUT ME presents a collection of questions designed to create a true picture of your life. With new questions specific to the new century, the book will reveal everything everyone ever wanted to know about you but never thought -- or dared -- to ask. Fill it in, leave it blank, or ask and answer questions out loud -- share ALL ABOUT ME with your family and friends, and give them the gift of the millennium. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Bought this book for my father. Unfortunately, I found that the yes/no, multiple choice and one liner records to pointed questions subdued his responses and creativity.
Some of the questions are clever ones that I wouldn't have thought of (e.g. "If you had to imagine your father as an animal, he would be...").
The one line response format wasn't open-ended or expansive enough for him to tell the stories he wanted to tell, and that I wanted to hear/preserve.

I admit, I am a sucker for fill in the blanks, find yourself, do it yourself memoir books...so this was perfect for me. But I had so much fun filling it out - from the serious to the silly questions. I went and bought one for my sister too! This is not as "heavy" as other find yourself books, but this one is so simple and fun, it's truly enjoyable and you still learn a lot about --- you.

This book lets you reflect back and also look forward. It uncovers hidden truths you may not have currently given attention. If you want to know more about yourself or share yourself with someone else, this is the perfect avenue. I recommend you buy two and fill them out with your significant other. Or save one and fill it out later and see how things have changed.

Okay...I admit it, I love things like this. Things that make you look deeper into yourself, to find the person you may or may not be aware existed. I bought this book on a whim, I had some extra time at home for the holidays and decided to spend a part of it "soul-searching." This book was the perfect remedy for that craving. It is interesting, and packed with questions that I would have never thought to ask myself. Upon buying it, I told my boyfriend, sure that he'd roll his eyes at the thought...instead, he was interested, and even willing to participate. Surprisingly, I'm ordering one for him very soon. Also, I'm planning to order it for a very close college friend, since she is interested in this type of thing as well. As we are graduating fairly soon and going our seperate ways I want to give her something to remember me by. The questions are fun, some thought provoking, but all are sure to make you think of something that is very dear to you: family, friends, and yes, yourself. I definitely recommend this for couples who have been a part of each other's lives for some time, even after years together it will show you sides of them you may have never known until now. Also, it makes a great gift for a family member, or close friend that you'd like to offer a sentimental present to that has more personality than a gift certicate.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 15 2000
Format: Hardcover
Novelists often decry the loss of self in modern civilization. Rather than reading a book that encourages you to feel alienated, how about using this one to become better acquainted with yourself and others?
In a busy, hustle-bustle lives, there is too little time for human contact. Psychological intimacy becomes all the more valuable. But where to start?
All About Me is a psychological profile of you, after you fill it out. I found it to be a heart-warming experience, to get back in touch with myself . . . especially sides of myself that even I don't see very often. I probably could not have come up with questions that would have worked nearly this well for myself.
Then, I began to think . . . hmmm, what if the people I care about filled out one of these books too? I'll bet they would be thrilled that I cared enough to give them one, and I'm sure to learn lots of great things that will be the basis of many wonderful discussions.
Then, encouraged by the book's introduction, I began to see the possibility of using these questions as part of a parlor game. You could do a sort of round-robin, and explain your answers and expand upon them as you go. That would certainly beat most cocktail and dinner party conversations.
Then, I thought, you could just ask people these questions wherever you find them. They would make great icebreakers and would be very interesting.
I think you get the idea. A single question can be the fulcrum to move the world, or at least your perception of it.
What are the questions about in this book? Just about everything you can imagine: favorites, fruits of your labors, morals, God, opinions, family relations, friends, likes and dislikes, wishes and dreams, emotions (who makes you most happy?

This is a really good book to fill out when you want to have something that you can look back on and reflect on. I enjoyed filling out all of the questions, even though some were a little bit difficult and required some thinking! I'm 14 now, and I can't wait to reread it when I'm 24, 34, 44, and beyond to see how my views have changed!

I found this book great, but with one problem. If you're sending it to someone, you don't really have a chance to explain your answers, so if they're misinterpreted, or you just wrote your answer wrong, you're going to have some explaining to do, and this might cause a problem. As with emails, your answers here show no emotion or feeling, so it's very easy to misinterpret, and you also don't have a chance to explain something if the other person has a question. Plus, you should be secure knowing that this person whom you are giving it to won't share it with the world, if you're going to write sensitive things in it. Perhaps I'm just being overanalytical, but that's the way I see it.
