A clever algorithm determines the most sound, unique facts about the individual using any date

  • Personalised with a name, message and birth date
  • Clever algorithms use any date to determine unique facts about the individual
  • Find out the box office hits, no.1 album and more from your chosen birth date
  • A4 hardback or softback bound by hand and embossed with any name
  • FREE luxury gift box with any hardback purchase

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. With the individual’s name embossed on the cover and a special message on the opening page from yours truly, the personalised “Book About You” is designed for the humblest of individuals, to remind them that out of seven billion people in the world, they’ll find out why they’re one in a billion.

How to Personalise Your Book About You

Choose from two cover options: either the blue or orange version, both available in A4 softback or hardback. Then personalise the book with the recipient’s name of up to 25 characters over 1 line. 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.

It's very nice.

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.

Dinosaur book review

Really pleased with the personalised dinosaur book I had for my 1yr old neighbour! It’s so colourful and having his name everywhere possible is absolutely brilliant. I’m sure he will love it for many years to come.

Bruce Evans Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 14 Apr 2021

Excellent book including further items…

Excellent book including further items I was not expecting, but were brilliant and very exciting to read, my friend who I bought the book for was in tears reading it. Well worth it and would recommend it

Annette O Connor Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 14 Apr 2021

I bought 2 books for my grandchildren…

I bought 2 books for my grandchildren which I am delighted with. I love the personalisation of them. I knew they were going to be personalised but not to the extent that they were with their names on every page. The quality of the books is great as well. Each page is a lovely quality and hopefully childproof!! I received them very quickly in the post as well. I had both of them within 10 days and that included Easter and a weekend. Many thanks

Felicity Jackson Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 13 Apr 2021

Nice product but too late

The product is nice but the book arrived several days after the last delivery date it was supposed to (and without an apology or warning), so I missed occasion, despite having ordered it in plenty of time.

A special gift for the sports fan in your life

This is the second book I have bought as gifts and they have been a huge success. They are good quality, fast service and a very interesting different gift for an enthusiast.

Maureen Pringle Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 12 Apr 2021

Great book for a football fanatic!!

I love this book I've bought for my husband's 60th later this year who is Newcastle United mad!!!! My only criticism would be that when I placed my order and wrote what I wanted printed I tried to place it so it would be central, but, when it came one of the lines wasn't, thankfully it still looks ok but as a company I thought you would of automatically centralised the printing especially for the price! I bought the most expensive one saying as it's for a special birthday. Good quick service and well packaged though.
