Format: Paperback
I'm having a really great time with this journal. I've journalled for many years but never in this way, without words. It comes with a set of instructions that don't have to be followed and each page has a suggestion of what to do to it like: tear this page in strips, cut through several layers, do something sudden and destructive to the journal. Still to be done: the back page of the journal has a space for writing your address and tells you to tape the journal up and mail it to yourself. That will be fun. I bring it with me everywhere and pull it out whenever I'm bored (although lately, that hasn't been very often). You can tear through it (literally) very quickly or do it over time ' however you like. I've always had a problem writing in books and I think this might help get me over that.

This is not an outlet for you to pour our your deepest thoughts and feelings. It is meant to be fun and allows you to be a little destructive. Each page asks you to do a random act in or with the journal - like throw it from a high place and write one word over and over again... stuff like that. Overall, I like it and it's been fun.

This is the first book i've bought for the sole reason of my daughters destroying it. They had an absolute blast going through and doing all the things the book said to do. A great buy if your willing to put money into something your kids will enjoy (and destroy!). It had a lot of good laughs.

This is a great tool for breaking out of your comfort zone. The various tasks of destruction force you to think creatively. I love it.

I loved this "activity" book. Almost like a therapy of destruction, stress reliver and really funny to follow the instruction.

I was just scrolling for a new journal when I came across this one. Thought it sounded really interesting so I ended up googeling it and after seeing all the pictures people posted I bought this right away. I actually bought 3 (for my sisters) because I thought this was just such a neat idea! The total opposite to any journal I've ever had! The object is to WRECK the journal. This book is so fun and such an artistic way to spend your free time!

I really enjoy the concept of this book and know that it will entertain me for hours and help prompt me when I can't think of anything to draw. Ever since I got this book I have so many ideas and not enough free time to put them to paper!

I bought this book for my 14 year old daughter for Christmas and I think it was one of her favorite gifts!! It would suit a range of ages (12 and up) but I think her age is perfect! It is such a fun and creative way to pass the time! I will definitely be getting the other books for her birthday and am now intrigued to check out some other books written by Keri Smith! I would HIGHLY recommend this book!
