"Philipp Keel's book of discover-yourself queries gives us pause indeed. With questions like this, who needs Barbara Walters?"
From the Inside Flap
All About Me has given thousands of readers insight into the thoughts, feelings, and events that uniquely shape their lives. Now Philipp Keel has created an even more personal collection of fascinating questions--a fun, non-threatening tool designed to help couples deepen their relationships.
Unlike dry record books that merely account for dates and names, All About Us gets to the heart of the matter by asking the questions that partners may be desperately curious about but hesitant to bring up, such as: If you could change one of your partner's body parts, what would it be? You have drawn blood in a fight with an ex (yes/no). Name a habit of your partner that you have proudly accepted.
With questions about romance and sex, daily routines and the life of your dreams, All About Us will help you and your partner discover more about yourselves and each other than you ever imagined possible. Whether you fill it out together, separately, or ask and answer questions aloud, this unique book will help you to deepen your relationship and discover that, once again, love is the answer.
All About Us brings a new level of honesty and self-revelation to all couples. Destined to become the must-have gift for weddings, Valentine's Day, anniversaries, and any occasion with someone special, this is an irresistible treasure. -->

Before reading further, let me emphasize a few things. This is not a book about romance, nor a guide to improve your relationship (see Relationship Rescue for that). You are encouraged to pursue this book's questions in a spirit of adventure and fun. If the idea of answering questions from a book is not your idea of adventure and fun, this book is not for you. So most people who will read and enjoy this book are ones in a good or excellent relationship who want to deepen and widen it some.
One final word of caution. There are a lot of questions in here about your sexual experiences with other people (before and during your relationship), your fantasies, and your sexual regrets. If those are not comfortable areas for a discussion, I suggest that you either skip the book or mutually agree to pass on those areas.
Another way to pursue the book (if your partner or you isn't comfortable with a discussion) is to do it privately, without sharing your answers. That makes the book experience much more like All About Me.
You should also feel free to make up your own questions. You will probably think of some that make this experience fit your relationship even better. This is a chance for all of you romantic couples to come up with lots of romantic questions.
As I went through the book (by myself, for reviewing purposes -- I plan to start it this weekend with my wife), I had a very good time.Read more ›
Far too many "check one box" answers, which don't allow for expressing individual feelings or sharing memories.
This book seems like it's more for couples with unresolved issues, or ones that are trying to save their marriage.
Definitely not for the happily-in-love--you'll find a lot of it doesn't apply.
At the end of the first section of this book it asks both you and your partner if you are willing to accept what this book reveals. If either of you would answer no, don't go through with it. My boyfriend and I got through about nine pages before he said he had to take a break, and we hadn't even gotten to the really serious questions yet.
I think that this book asks questions you wouldn't normally ask or have a hard time talking about. They are straight forward and while some of them are just fun, many are very serious and potentially hurtful answers could result from them. Just be prepared. I would definetly recommend it.
I recommend going through it together. If you do it separately, you'll see your significant other's answers before answering the questions yourself, which may bias your answer. What we do is she'll read the question, right down her answer (without me looking) and then I will tell her my answer. Only then does she read me her answer, already written down. That way, we avoid the bias in answering.
Why is that important? You better be awfully secure to go through this book with your partner. While many of the questions are very basic/gentle, like "Where was your first kiss?" and "What do you love about your partner?", other questions are much edgier and could lead to fights. Milder ones include "Did you fall for your partner out of loneliness" or "for financial reasons?" Or worse, "Have you ever cheated in a relationship, and if so, how many of them?" While it's good to have an idea how faithful your partner has been in the past (assuming your partner is even being honest with a question like that), it has the potential to make you super paranoid if you find out something you didn't know.
I learned a lot of things from this book that I didn't really want to know about my partner. I'm glad she was (seemingly) honest with her answers, but they certainly have made me more paranoid about our relationship, whether or not it's warranted.
This book can be a dangerous thing for a relationship, or it can bring a couple closer together. It all depends on how you take it. Just be warned.
