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 Inside Flap
The wide-ranging questions--from short yes/no's to open-ended ones that probe your psyche--are personal, direct, and addictively fun to answer. The basic specs, including blood type and annual salary, are also covered.
If you've ever wished that you or your loved ones had been born with an operating manual, your wish has been granted. Filled in or left blank, All About Me is a perfect gift for everyone you care about--friends, relatives, mentors, and lovers. Published just in time for Valentine's Day, but also ideal for Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduations, birthdays, showers, and weddings, this unique book gives the best present of all: the gift of you.

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?Read more ›
As I said, this item can be a great novelty - do not give it as a sole gift, but rather as an embellishment to a really thoughtful gift. And if you really want to get to know yourself, and your overall feelings towards life, talk to a therapist - s/he'll ask more relevant questions.
However, the physical book itself is lacking. The pages, for one, are glossy. GLOSSY! Why make a book that you're supposed to WRITE IN, with glossy pages? There isn't a page in mine that didn't get a fat smear, or print the text on the opposite page when closed. It's hideous. Absolutely frustrating. Double thumbs down to the publisher.
