You'll love this because...

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 to keep your book protected as time passes

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 protective gift box, while with the softback this is an additional charge.

Karen CumminsTrustpilot product review 1 star rating8 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 IorgaTrustpilot product review 5 star rating3 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.

Very disappointed in the book

Very disappointed in the book, misleading certificate on title page looks like a small sticker I could have placed on myself, poor value for money- quick dispatch was the best bit

MT Trustpilot product review 1 star rating 29 Jul 2021

Constant calls about delivery

Constant calls about delivery. The people on the phone actually have no control over when an item gets sent out so it was just constantly false information. I actually didn’t need the item after it arrived late, but I couldn’t stand speaking to them on the phone again to go over the refund process which they probably would have not allowed as it was personalised. Really bad experience

  • In the Book Team 30 Jul 2021

    Thank you for your review.

    We have looked into your order details and can see that the operators tried to assist as best as they could under the circumstances.

    Your order was placed late on the 14th meaning that officially this would go into production on Thursday the 15th and was therefore quoted delivery between the 16th and 20th which does include production time as well as delivery due to the bespoke nature of this product. You then requested to have this delivered by the 16th giving us a day to process the order when we usually allow between 1-2 working days for production so when you upgraded the order it did cause some confusion but despite the inconvenience caused, we tried our very best to process the order as quickly as possible which was then delivered on the Saturday which is not a guaranteed day for delivery.

    With that in mind and the time frame in which we were given (less than a day to process the personalised gift) your order was processed and despatched with delivery being one day later than expected, we are so pleased to hear that after every effort made, you have received a really bad experience.

    We can confirm that a refund has been processed a gesture for the difference paid for your delivery.

    Kindest regards
    In the Book.

Ordered and paid for a book for my…

Ordered and paid for a book for my mother, promised delivery was july 16-21. Today is the 26th and your website has no info on my order, nothing, and obviously no delivery. Yet, my bank account clearly shows a $99.98 payment to inthebook on july 7, 2021. Update: Inthebook contacted me the next morning, updated me on the shipping and my mother’s book arrived the next day. She’s 84 and it’s been awhile since I’ve seen her tears of joy. All’s well that ends well. Thank you, and I’ve updated my review to reflect 5 stars.

  • In the Book Team 28 Jul 2021

    Thank you for your review.

    We can see that you have contacted our customer service team who have provided your tracking information and a screenshot of your expected delivery which is now showing as delivered as of July 27, 2021 at 11:26 am.

    The website does provide your order information when you enter your email address and full zip code, if that is unsuccessful we do provide our contact information within your email confirmation.

    Due to the delay in delivery we have requested a refund for your delivery cost and hope that this will go towards an apology. If you need any further assistance, please email us at [email protected]

    Kind regards
    In the Book.
