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!

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. :)

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.
