Amazon.com Review

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 Inside Flap

Is there someone special you'd like to open up to? Do you want to know yourself better? Self-discovery and self-revelation aren't easy. With simple but provocative questions, All About Me is a great tool for self-reflection that spotlights everything your loved ones would be interested to know about you but never thought--or dared--to ask. Such as: Name a friend you should not have kissed. Describe a moment when you achieved absolute happiness. Recall a compliment that made you blush. Write about your most beautiful and your most horrifying memory of your parents. Does a naked photo of you exist?

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.

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.

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?

I am buying one of these for all of my friends and family, as well as for myself. The thought-provoking questions challenge you to think about the person you have become,and in retrospect, the person that you were. I am giving this to my parents and grandparents to fill out, so that when they are no longer with me, I will have a piece of who they were and their thoughts on life, living, and dying. I absolutely recommend this book! Its a MUST buy!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
15% of the questions in this book are truly interesting and thought-provoking. The rest are just 70 pages of online quizzes - "the animal that best describes you," "your sexiest feature," "amount of sexual partners," etc. If in the future, someone stumbles across my copy, it will be as though they found my Deadjournal from freshman year. It will be of trivial information about what's going on at that exact moment in my life - "your most recent lie," "your three best qualities," or "the friend who is most like you." This book is a collection of things that can change within a week. Many questions can be answered in one word, but you are given two lines. Questions where you need more space are the ones with half a line to use.

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.

For those of you who enjoy getting to know yourself this is a perfect book for you. It is filled with thought provoking questions and factual data. It takes awhile to complete and probably should be re-done every few years or so. This journal is a perfect gift to leave the world in your wake.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The questions in this book are extremely innovative and unlike any "list yourself" book out there. This truly delves into what kind of a person you are through your responses to random, but well-thought-out questions. This book basically allows you to put down in a book the version of yourself that your friends and family know. Unlike a journal (which unless you live a very extraordinary life, usually gives way to the mundane, random philosophical rants, or moping) this book sucks out of you a more coherent, real-life version of yourself. And it's fun -- especially asking the questions to someone else, and comparing answers. Thumbs up to Philipp Keel. His "All About My Dog" book is a riot, too.

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.
