Fair warning. This book is fabulous unless you've lived a non-traditional life. Divorced? Abused? The "201 Questions" assume you are in Norman Rockwell's neighborhood. The world is perfect. You have minor tiffs with family, all of which are reconciled; you have one marriage and you remember your wedding fondly; you have children or plan to have children, etc. If you're okay with that, you'll love this book. Nice blank pages to handwrite your responses, and gentle questions to answer. No angst, no pain.
" ...How to write your own autobiography
201 prompts to help you begin telling your special story. You fill in the rest. Three main sections, or chronological life phases cover the early, middle, and later years. It is up to you to decide where one section leaves off and the next section begins for your own life. Each section is broken down into five subjects covering experiences about family, friends, education, work and the world. Tghese subjects are located at the bottom of each page. "
Sondra R. (gowithgod) reviewed The Book of Myself: A Do-It-Yourself Autobiography in 201 Questions on
Though I have not completed the book in its entirity yet, I have absolutely enjoyed the book. The book asks thought provoking questions about each part of your life- childhood, middle age and your last years. It has been a joy to fill out and I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is thinking about writing an autobiography of their life or wants to leave a record of their life for their family that will endure the test of time.
