I found it helpful with other reviews to see a list of the pages inside the baby books. I ended up buying this one because the box with drawer was very unique and I knew I wanted a place to put baby shower cards and whatnot. The box is very sturdy, the book is cute, and the included envelopes and labels are handy. The book itself (not the pages within) is ever so slightly smaller than 8.5x11 inches. The layout is clean with plenty of white space. The pages for pasting photos give you lots of room for both photos and writing captions.
Anyway, here are the content pages (most pages have a facing page where you can paste photos):
-=Waiting for Baby=-
All About Mom
All About Dad
Baby On the Way
Preparing for Baby
You Were Born
On the Day you were Born
Baby's Birth Stats
All About Baby's Name
Baby's First Bath
Baby's First Haircut
Baby's First Holiday
Baby's First Vacation
-=Life With Baby=-
Sounds and Words
Yummy and Yucky Foods
Most Memorable Moments
-=Baby's First Year=-
(a page for each of the 12 months)

The graphics are very nice, and the design with the book/box combo is convenient (and the only reason I'm rating it a 3 vs a 2).
I just don't see this as a standalone memory book and I had hoped to not need multiple. There is just very little to fill out for content in my opinion. Not even a page for hospital visitors/guests to sign, etc. I just expected more based on the reviews perhaps, so it was a disappointment.
1/4 of the pages or more are for photos, and I would have liked more room for detailed questions and actual written responses. The questions that are included...meh. "Mom's favorite song?"- really?It seems like there was thoughtful work done on the graphics and the rest of this was just phoned in. At 19.99 this would be a fine purchase with the understanding that you'd need a secondary book for more details.
