This isn't a book you read. The book asks questions 'about you' and you fill them in. I considered getting this once for a a girl I used to know (who was a narcisstic, teenage girl) for her birthday a few years back. But don't get me wrong -- I suppose it's a fun keepsake for anyone that wants to sit and remember their past or things they like and don't like. I just think it's probably perfect for younger folk who love doing little scrapbook projects about themselves. No one else will be reading or caring about it other than the owner.
