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.

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 over priced for what you get. Won't use again.
Very over priced for what you get. I ordered pride and prejudice for my partner and replaced my name with Mr Darcy. It was listed as Mr darcy in the selection so I expected my name to be replaced with that. All other characters are listed as first name and surname. So it was a surprise when it's only first names changed (which is fine for elizabeth) but as Mr Darcy is specifically referred to as that for the duration of the book. My name barely appears. That and the cover looks nothing like the picture. The paper is thin and cheap as is the binding. My order was not picked up by their system so I had to email to find out where it was. Offered a 20% refund and express shipping which did not make up for the above issues. The gift box was also very cheap and clearly a money grabbing scheme which I fell for. If you don't expect too much you will be OK.

Good book, poor paper quality
The book itself is great, good content and educational with animal facts as well as a story.
The issue I have is the quality of the paper, it’s very printer paper like and a young child would easily tear the paper. It’s also quite expensive for what it is, especially as the paper is poor quality.
I have never come across a children’s book with such paper. However I’m sure a 8 year old and above would be fine with it.
