I gave this book to my mother and grandmother, and that has proven to be one of the best things I ever could have done. This book has questions in it like, "One of my most memorable toys was . . ." and "These people were my best friends in my middle years. . ." The book has specific questions for three different periods in life, and all of the questions are revealing. Not only have I learned a lot about my mother and grandmother, but they have learned about themselves. This book makes a thoughtful gift, and I plan to buy several more for Christmas presents. My only complaint about the book is its writing spaces. The lines are too wide, leaving little room to write in detail. Still, I've not found another book of equal quality or depth. A gem!

This book asks excellent questions relating to several different periods of a person's life. Most of them are generic enough that they can be commented on, providing insight to whomever ends up reading the final version. This is not a book which can be completed quickly - many of the questions relate to "middle age" with grandkids, etc. (things I have yet to experience). However I believe once it is done (even in partial form) it will be something nice I can leave behind for my children and maybe grandchildren to read and gain insight into my life.

For those of us who feel that we have gained a bit of wisdom in our journey of life and who has a desire to preserve and share this wisdom - this is a great book to begin to memorialize these immortal thoughts. The only downside to this book is that you only have one page to answer each "question" which this book poses(to provoke your memory)- too often one would need more that just one page to express our thoughts.
If you are fortunate to have your parents complete it, treat the book like fine wine, the more it ages, the better it gets.
