Format: Paperback
This is an excellent guide for any one who desires to write their memoir. It is also useful as a guide for someone to use in recording the memories of another. I used this book to help my aunt (aged 94) write her autobiography. She has no children and without our sessions with Writing Your Life, all of her historical information would be lost. She is visually impaired but I read her the questions and memory joggers and then recorded her answers. We had a wonderful and meaningful time together. Ms. Borg's book is easy to use and I particularly enjoyed the sample writings from her students. I recommend this book to persons of all ages.

Writing Your Life is the best book to use as a guide to writing an autobiography. The numerous questions will spark memories and give you much to think about. I have used this great resource with a variety of seniors from independent living to long term care and it always produces lively conversations and terrific stories to share. Writing Your Life is a great addition to any activity and recreational program. You can offer classes from 1 hour to 12 weeks with this material. I have also used it for employee team building and professional development in business and health care settings. The interesting stories by ordinary people and Mary Borg's encouraging words will motivate any would-be writer.

It's good for a starter. I was looking for something more than the outline.
