I've been journaling pretty steadily for the past 4-5 years or so. One thing I've really wanted to include is more doodling and (attempts at) drawing. I consider myself artistically-challenged, and this book really has encouraged me to give drawing in my journals a try.
Some other reviewers have stated that they've read this book in one sitting. I daresay that's POSSIBLE, but I wouldn't WANT to read it in one sitting. It's just so packed with stuff and so good that I wanted to savor it!
Scrapbookers would also benefit from reading this book!
Take a look at Amazon's great "Look inside" feature to look at this book, then order one for yourself and several for gifts - you won't be sorry!
This book speaks to a person who always felt they should write a journal but were afraid to start.
Price gives encouragement along the way such as using the journal for positive thoughts not just for complaining. Journalists don't have to be professional novelists before they can begin writing about their own life for their own eyes!
The addition of ephemera from the journalists daily lives is encouraged (ticket stubs, random paper clutter from our lives, etc.).
The end of the book features twenty pages of Price's journals which were formerly published in 1991 to 1991, as a small independent zine called 'Moonlight Chronicles'. Later a book by the same title was published (I have not yet read it but want to!)
Previously I thought the only journaling that was done in our modern day was in fancy blank journal books and I assumed they were filled only with text in beautiful script. I have felt inhibited by this in the past, worrying if my handwriting was not perfect, what if I made a spelling error, etc. Other journals with writing prompts with someone else's ideas of what we should be writing further discouraged me from beginning a journal as they often asked me to write about things I could care less about!
I found this little book just the encouragement I needed to start writing a journal with whatever I wanted to say in it. It is alright for the journal to be imperfect.

Finally, he has written the book that we have all been hankering for, a step-by-step guide, coach and inspiration to creating a rich record of our every day lives.
If you've always wished you had kept a diary, regret no more.
As the world spins madly by, this pocket sized book shows you how to seize the moment, look it in the face and make it yours for all time. Whether or not you think of yourself as an artist, writer or photographer, he will show you how much more you can do than you ever dreamed. Whether or not you think the life you live is worth capturing, he will show you how fortunate and fascinating you are.
See the world anew. You won't regret it.
But otherwise fantastic!!!!!
It's a *one sit* read - you won't put it down until you are done. I read mine at the bookstore and couldn't help but purchase a journal for myself and friend. This book DEMANDS gift status! Loved it. I'd give it 6 stars if you'd let me.

Too general without any real tools, unless you want to pickup sketching and photography along with learning how to journal. No real insights here.Published 15 months ago by Craig C. Brandau
