Great service, good quality book, I am really pleased with the book.
Traci Thompson14 August
I was very happy with the book I purchased & how quickly it was made & posted to me. I thought the quality of the book was great and my son on receiving it was extremely happy. The only remarks I would perhaps make or suggest are firstly I feel the price is a bit steep for what you actually receive & I think I feel that way as there should be a bit more choice for the customer i.e the actual colour of the book & maybe a bit more choice/option of being able to add into the book a bit more of a personal touch from the customer about the person the book is being made for. The book is great for facts about the year and date the person was born etc but the only personal things about the recipient is 1 picture, name on front & front page & personal greeting from the sender with only a limited number of characters to be used and lastly the recipients name appears on the odd page throughout the book. The book is called “The book about you” so I feel that the customer should have some more options to actually add facts & or pictures about the person the book is being made for however even though I have made these suggestions I am very happy about the purchase and is a nice little keepsake (even if a bit too expensive for what it is).

This is a good quality, well designed book which I think is excellent value for money. The only improvement on it is if you could add more photos throughout the book with the specific dates that are chosen to personalise that little bit more.
Mrs Lucy Oliver11 March
Good quality, great illustrations. Some of the info in the book might not be suitable for everyone (those who don't believe in astrology , birthstones etc) but geberally this book is a lovely keepsake, modern looking, and full of interesting facts and figures.
Amazing Spider-Man deluxe book. My grandson is going to love it. His photo looks great on the book. Thankyou.

Book well presented
Book well presented, but would have been better if personalised first page had name and greeting on the page instead of a stick on label. Paper used was of average weight and quality. Fast delivery though.

Funny book, but not full size!
Funny book, looks just like a Haynes manual BUT it is probably half the size so bear that in mind.
I had the box just to make it a bit more special.

Customer service was excellent and friendly
Customer service was excellent, I received a quick friendly response to my query as I was worried that I would not receive the delivery in time for my friends baby shower, so they upgraded my delivery to priority. I received the book on time and my friends daughter loved her 'Big Sisters are Great' personalised book, she loved finding her name on the pages!

The book is amazing and worth every…
The book is amazing and worth every penny spent. The fact that it’s personalised to the person it’s for, is a bonus. And makes this book so unique. Can’t wait for my little cousin to receive it. I know she will love the stories in it as much as I did when I was younger.

Thank you for your review,
We are sorry to hear that the team were unable to catch the amendment.
The email was picked up first thing on the Monday Morning however sadly the order had already been printed as the production team can run up to 24 hours a day therefore we do request that all personalisation is checked within the basket stage and before check out as we can not guarantee that orders can be amended but will always try our best.
The customer service advisor did sent their apologies for this and offered a discount if a new order needed to placed. Please let us know if we can do anything further and we are happy to help.
Once again we are sorry that we were unable to make the correction in time.
Kind Regards, The In The Book Team
