Bought this for the Mr. to help him get back in touch with his creativity. After a few days he declared that he didn't like it, citing that it had childish prompts and felt silly. So, I took over the book and gotta say that I love it. Yes, some of the prompts are childish in nature, like stapling pages together and drawing with foreign materials, however that's sort of the point.

As children we are able to draw, paint, and create without censoring or second guessing. In our minds everything we make is wonderful, beautiful, and cool. It is only through the critique of others that we begin to criticize ourselves. Using this book we adults are able to got back to that childlike freedom and curiosity, and allow ourselves to create without restriction.

This edition includes all of the original pages, and about 20 or so bonus pages. But the bonus pages are a little nastier, some seem like it had little thought put into it. There are pages like collect dead bugs here, and wipe this page on a dirty car. If you're a germophobe, I wouldn't recommend this book, I'd recommend the original.

Reviews are not my thing, but this journal is worthy of a better one than I could ever write. On my gift list for enough people that I can take a full day off from Christmas shopping if that tells you anything. It's an action adventure that everyone should embark on. This book, a great pen and you have a gift that will entertain, challenge and delight anyone with a pulse!

Both my wife and mother joke that I manage to read books without ever opening them, since I do not like to see the spine of a paperback cracked, covers bent, or any sort of marking on a book.

So when my daughter ordered this journal and promptly started writing on it, ripping things out, smashing it, tossing it, and all causing all sorts of mayhem to it, I weeped inside for the poor book.

But here's the thing. My daughter had a ball. The exercises inside the book bring out the inner kid in you and free up your creativity because they break all the rules of what you should do with a book. And truthfully, books are meant to be loved in anyway you see fit (short of burning, unless you need the heat they provide). If a book looks like an old teddy bear because you loved it so much, then great.

Bottom line is Wreck This Journal does just that. But the fun is in the journey. So enjoy.

This book will literally be destroyed by the time you're done with it, but it's so worth it! It will definitely be the first journal I'll actually finish!

It felt truly liberating to wreck this journal. Especially beneficial for good girls (and boys, I suppose) who always keep things in order. :)

My daughter asked me for this book at the beginning of summer. Wish I had known then, what I do now, - that this darn thing would become what I would probably describe as a ? new family member in the house ? ...
Since it has arrived, she has fed it, slept with it, showered with it, gone on walks with it. It has accompanied us on various outings, its been decorated more than Lady Gagas' wardrobe.. has artwork in it now that would make Picaso jealous. You name it - its probably been done to this journal.
For one week, she bugged me to take her to this one park that has a tall bridge over some of it. Finally, I did ( of course, book in tow ). We got there, and she made a bee line for the bridge. Got to the top, and promptly flung this goofy thing over the edge to the ground ( not water, haha ). O.o
Needless to say, she has had a blast with this book, and, its been a great joy to see her so interested in it, and to fill it up.

I would highly recommend this journal to the adventurists at heart.

btw - for all that this book has been through, its in REMARKABLE shape!

My sister turned me onto these books and I think I've purchased 8 in the last couple of months: great fun for kids at sleepovers, for birthday parties, etc. Everyone is in awe at all the crazy things they have to do to this poor book and that's part of the naughty pleasure of it! I haven't seen a single kid open the book and not perform at least one of the activities immediately ... wiping their feet on it, putting their chewing gum in one of the pages, etc. As much as I love books (I volunteer in my kids' library), there's something really delicious in breaking all the Library rules ... which is probably why this book is just so much fun because that's exactly the type of behavior this book encourages!
