Each page of this memorable personalised book reveals something new, from the box office hits of their birth year to the most popular toys of their decade, all partnered with visually stimulating illustrations.

How to Personalise Your Book About You

The name will be embossed on the cover and featured throughout the book. Importantly: select the birth date – this will determine the book’s content and be embossed on the cover.

Include a special message of up to 80 characters over 2 lines, with 40 characters per line. This will appear on the opening title page. The hardback comes with a free gift box, while with the softback this is an additional charge.

Karen Cummins Trustpilot product review 1 star rating 8 Dec 2020

Not very much in it. Very skinny for the price of it. I would rather have given more facts about the person to make the book more personal, it is very generic just like a book of facts and figures with a name and date of birth on front cover.

Got this for my dad for his birthday, was very pleased with this, very interesting

Oana Iorga Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 3 Aug 2020

I placed an order with 'the book about you' product, which contains data and statistics about the year/month/decade of the person that it is addressed to. It was a nice surprise I did for a friend in Germany, as she could find out more things as she if she had been born in the UK :D I also gave 5 for customer service. Unfortunately, one of my orders to Romania didn't reach its destination :-( after more than 1 month since being placed.

As the title says it's a book all about you or about the person you have purchased the book for. It really is a unique present/gift that will guarantee to put a big smile on the face of the person receiving it.

Shipping takes forever but...

I recieved my book without ever knowing it had shipped. The tracking service did not work one time with my order. I ordered this well in advance of a birthday party and was greatful I did so since it took over 3 weeks to receive. That being said....the book is beautiful and exactly what i was expecting. The entire family loves it.

Nilani Chandan Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 17 Jan 2021

Delayed delivery and book cover was damaged

There were delays with delivery but this was due to Covid-19 restrictions. Would’ve appreciated an email to update me about this. The book was nice however, I was slightly disappointed that the cover had scratch marks on it and slightly damaged at the corners. Overall, lovely gift idea but disappointed about the damages considering how expensive the product is.
