Format: Hardcover
After receiving this book from my adult daughter, I began filling in the pages. So many wonderul memories were relived with each question that I answered. I began thinking, this book would make a true heirloom if given as college graduation gifts. The graduates are at a turning point in their lives. They have lived most of their youth and they have experienced a great many trials and tribulations. What better time then now to enscribe them in this wonderful thought provoking book. Yet, they have so many good years ahead of them that they can record not only yesterday's memories, but today's and then tomorrows. In essence this is a running account of their lives.
What a fantastic gift to pass on to one's children.

I received this book for Christmas - my friend knows I have kept a journal since I was 12 - so it was a "just perfect" gift for me. What I like about it is that it lists all the questions you would like to ask, but have never got around to asking of anyone precious in your life. I am going to send a copy to my 89-year old godmother - because there is so much I would like for her to tell us. We're also going to use it as a tool for the video we are making of her - the questions and segments are perfect for a project like that. In a future edition, I would recommend more questions or segments for those with non-traditional lives - multiple marriages, foster families, gay relationships, etc. But this is definitely a start in the right direction and there are plenty of blank pages to fill in your own unique events, life experiences, and thoughts.

I bought this as a gift, directly from Amazon, without having seen the book. The recipient, an avid scrapbooker and saver of poems and all things written, photographic, and sentimental (she uses large books herself, and is a devoted mom and teacher), didn't respond in the favorable way I'd anticipated based on the reviews here, combined with her personality and interests. I don't think she'll be using this book.

HASH(0x9ae07d44) out of 5 stars All the questions you've ever wanted your kids to know. June 11 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The story of a lifetime is a wonderful book. Not only is the flow of the book very easy to follow, it can be started at any point in life. Whether you want to keep an ongoing story of your life, or just want to remember and leave behind a legacy. The questions are clear and simple yet very thought provoking. An excellent gift to or from parents. I love the fact that all of the questions are already there, it's up to the writer to answer the questions he or she wants. I am definitely looking forward to leaving this reminder of me to my family.

HASH(0x9ae08204) out of 5 stars Beware of Dust Cover Nov. 7 2006
By MarianneB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this edition of this book as well as the "revised edition" (blue-green cover) to give to my baby's grandparents on the occasion of her first birthday. This ("plum") edition comes with a dustcover that goes on and on about parents growing old, death, funerals, etc, told from the perspective of friends and family, rather than that of the person who is to fill out the book. While I think it is understood that a book like this is something that families will want to read after a person dies, I thought that the cover was morbid and inappropriate to give people who are busy living and don't want to dwell on getting old, death, and dying. If the dust jacket needed to speak to those topics I think it would have been far more appropriate to discuss them from the perspective of the person who is to fill out the book. It almost feels like the book is ignoring that person and treating them as someone who is already dead. If you are giving the book to someone who is on hospice, it's probably great. Otherwise, give the "revised" edition. Luckily you can take the dust cover off of this one, but the book isn't very attractive without it. The "revised" edition comes with a card that has the morbid stuff on it, easily thrown away.

HASH(0x9ae081ec) out of 5 stars Best gift I ever received. July 5 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is the most unique gift I have ever received. Ever since my daughter gave it to me, I can't put it down. I was touched by her wish to have me preserve things about my life. It is such a wonderful idea and the questions have brought a flood of memories. Now I feel I can say everything I want to say to my children and grandchildren. I recommend it for anyone.

HASH(0x9ae08150) out of 5 stars Fantastic, An extremely thoughtful gift Jan. 6 1999
By Robert Brennecke(msterioso@AOL.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Far and away the best way I have come across to bring out all the hidden and forgotten memories of a lifetime, some of which may bring tears as well as smiles to your face. I can now pass on to my children, and their children my experiences and thoughts. I intend to purchase one for my wife as soon as I can squeeze it into my Social Security budget. Many thanks to the author.

HASH(0x9ae08690) out of 5 stars Capacious, exhaustive, but badly organized Aug. 23 2001
By Elliott Mason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was impressed by the thickness of this volume; I wasn't expecting anything quite this big. And each page has lots of lines on it. But each question is given a relatively small space for the answer to fit in, and there is absolutely no way to find a particular question, or a particular topic, without reading the entire book and putting post-it notes in as bookmarks. I would have loved an index at the end, or a table of contents to the sections. Also, parts of it are really excessively sentimental - not everyone who's filling out one of these reads Simple Abundance compulsively, and the authors don't seem to realize that.
