Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After a short introduction, this is almost a blank book. Each page is headed by a list topic (e.g."List all the idiotic things you've done for money"; "List all the phone calls that changed your life"). The rest of each page after the topic is blank ruled paper. When completed, the book is a self-inventory. For people who are not otherwise inclined to keep a journal, this book could be an excellent freestanding tool for self-discovery. As a practical matter, however, due to the thickness of the book and the stiffness of the binding, it is a bit of an effort to write in neatly. This book would have been a lot easier to use if it were spiral- or coil-bound.
I actually like this book quite a bit and use the topic suggestions as journal prompts, because it is easier to write in a separate notebook than in this actual volume.

This book, if used thoughtfully and with the right intent could take months (perhaps even years) to complete!
I don't really know what I was expecting when I requested this book...but I saw it on Amazon and thought it "what a neat idea" -- my mind rushing with possibilities based on nothing more than the title and brief editorial description! When the book arrived at my door...I practically ravaged the packaging to get at the books (normally, I am excitable when it come to books...and I got all three in this List Yourself series: List Yourself; More List Yourself; and List Your Creative Self). Now I knew this was a book for you to fill in, but I was still surprised to find that after two very brief chapters (an introduction and "How to Use this Book") that it is virtually empty...most of the pages (14-297) are list topics. That is to say the very top portion of the page (about two lines worth) is a List Topic, the remainder of the page is blank lines to be filled in...allowing you to do exactly what the title says...List Yourself!
I found that the brief first chapters actually are more than adequate, this will be particularly appealing to individuals who do not have the patience for long-winded explanations or tons of in-depth analysis of this technique...there is just enough good information to get you going -- with a simple, easy "how to" your on your way to listing!
What is great about List Yourself is that it is not all "serious" or "proper," not all probing and full of angst...this book has lists that will help you capture ALL of who you are...even the funny and irreverent!!

Format: Hardcover
This is a book which you fill in pages that have a title for each page/list. The Titles are for things you list. Example: List all of the people who love you for who you really are. Another example: List the things you would change if you could change history. Or: List the things you hide when friends come to visit.
Some of the List headings are serious and some are silly, some delve into the past, others look to the future. They explore home, family, work , the world , your inner thoughts and so much more.
This is a delightful book for anyone who loves to make lists, who loves psychology, or who wants to understand themselves a little better. It is a whole lot of FUN!

Format: Hardcover
As I have mentioned in other reviews, I am a complete sucker for fill in the blank, get to know yourself, leave your legacy to your children kind of books. When I die, they could write my biography w/o much difficulty! :) But this one is very special. It asks questions from the profound to the silly about all aspects of your life.
I filled out the book when I first purchased it in 1997. Since I had other things keeping me busy, I didn't complete it until 1998. I would write my answers and date each page. When it was done. I tucked it away. Then, in 2003, I pulled it out again, with a different colored pen, and compared what my answers were 4 yrs later. Some things remained the same, however, I was amazed by the things that had changed. In those 4 yrs I gave birth to my first child, experienced 9-11-01 up close & personal, and lost my precious baby niece to a heart defect. Although I though I was the person that I would be and that was it, after these 3 events, I saw right in front of my eyes how the growing process is never really complete. We are creatures of change, but knowing where you have been, helps you get to where you want to be. It's a WONDERFUL book. I've since bought More List Yourself and List Yourself for Parents. I highly reccommend all of the books.

I had read all the reviews about this book and I decided to buy it. I love journals and this book is pretty interesting. It makes you think about all the things you have done in life. One of the topics says to list the times you did something unethical that you never told anyone about. These topics really probe deep into your life. Here are a couple of the topics in the book.
List all of the rumors you have started.
List the names you have been called endearing, and not so.
List how you feel when you have been lied too.
List all the people you wish you hadn't trusted
These are just a few of the great topics that are here. The book is a really great book. I recommend this for everyone 18 and over. To make things really great it is a hardcover book so you can keep it forever without the cover tearing. If you are like me and like fill in journals then get this one cause it is off the chain.
