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

Each page of this memorable personalized 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 personalized “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 Personalize Your Book About You

Choose from two cover options: either the blue or orange versions, both available in paperback or hardcover. Personalize the book with any name up to 25 characters over one 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. The hardcover comes with a free gift box, while with the softback this is an additional charge.

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.

Further Information

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.

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.

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry. Would not recommend to anyone. Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better. Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet. If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night. I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order. Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories. If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer. In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

Michael Kaye Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 19 Apr 2021

A great cover and fronts piece.

A great cover and fronts piece. However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

Absolutely brilliant company. Bought the Leeds united memory book It is brilliant cant wait to give the gift because I know the recipient is going to be absolutely amazed by it.

The child's name only appears on the opening page of each story. Other companies replace the name of the character in the story with the child's name. The format and quality of the book prints and presentation are good.

Very disappointed in this book for so much money - unfortunately I believed my granddaughter would appear in the story not just at the top of the pages - feel as if I’ve been conned!
