I received the book and it was damaged from all for corners.

Daz Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 2 Jun 2020

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.

Very pleased with the book but I did didn’t get the box that I paid for which is quite disappointing as the book was only £20 and then £5 for box et cetera order come to £33 you need to state your price is a bit better but very happy with the book thank you

RON REES Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 17 Aug 2019

Great service, good quality book, I am really pleased with the book.

Traci Thompson Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 14 Aug 2019

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).

Consumer Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 11 Jul 2020

nice book, shame about the missing surname

the book arrived after just a few days and i was pleased with the item, the only problem with the personalised book was the surname of the person it was intended for was missing from the inside cover.

Corey Wek Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 11 Jul 2020

Wonderful customer service!

I has called customer service and the woman who answered was promptly and courteous. She also had a wonder British accent that made my day... The item shipped in the time frame provided on the website. I will use InTheBook again

Moira Gillies Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 10 Jul 2020

Absolutely delighted

This order took a bit longer than advertised times to arrive but I think that was due to the Covid 19 problems and changes to working practises that had to be made. We can all understand and appreciate that. I ordered the your life as seen through the newspapers book for my mother in laws 90th birthday, black leather bound and personally engraved in gold. It shows the front page of the Mirror newspaper on the day she was born and on her birthday every year thereafter. I think the total cost was about £70. I hoped it would be really nice for her. But WOW! Its just absolutely beautiful. More than I had hoped for. My mother in law was enchanted with it. I can't think of anything I could have given her that would have been any better. A big thank you to the In The Book team. Thanks folks.

No choice of newspaper.

Efficient service but don’t remember being able to choose a newspaper.
