I was very pleased to find "The Story of a Lifetime" on Overstock.com after first discovering this do-it-yourself memoir on another website. I ordered 2 copies on Nov. 30th as I was planning to give one each to my grandmother and to my father for the holidays. Around Dec 11th, I began to wonder why I had not received the two copies of the book. I contacted Overstock.com's customer service via the online chat feature and was helped by a customer service representative (CSR) who checked on the status of my order.I was advised by the CSR that all books from Overstock.com are shipped via USPS MEDIA MAIL and have an estimated delivery timeframe of up to 15 BUSINESS DAYS from the shipping date. I was not aware of this when I placed my order. Luckily, I received my order on Dec 18th which was 14 Business Days from the ship date. I am pleased with this product, but not with Overstock.com's description of their shipping methods. Please be sure to check the shipping method if you decide to purchase this book to ensure that you will receive it when you need it.Read More
This gift was purchased for my cousin and her mother who is my Mom's older sister. Our goal is to compare the book that my Mom completed with the one that my Aunt will complete with the help of her daughter. My Mom is 85 and my Aunt will be 91 next month. My entire family will have the opportunity to read about the life my Mom and my Aunt led. It is a wonderful gift and a wonderful way to remember the lives of loved ones. I hope that the grandkids will enjoy reading about their grandparents.Read More
I purchased this book for my father-in-law so we can learn more about his childhood, middle years, and the present. The book's hardback binding is beautiful, making the book a durable, yet whimsical keepsake. Inside, the book is divided into sections based on age (childhood, older years, etc) and major events (marriage, children, etc). Questions in the book help prompt the recipient to reminisce (which is helpful for someone who is not a prolific writer). I highly recommend this book and will be buying one for myself also!Read More

My mom nearly cried when she opened this on Christmas. She was so excited to have a forum to tell all of our family's history and pass along. Can't wait to receive it all filled up!Read More
This is a great gift for a parent or a grandparent. Even though none of my parents went through military (there is a military section there), the sections can be just skipped. My only complaint is that it came in green color, not the blue as the picture, and there is no product description.Read More
This was not want I wanted. I was looking for something to give my Aunt on her 80th birthday. I wanted her to write some memories or her childhood. This was much to detailed and long. She would of been overwhelmed with this book. This would be a nice book if you wanted to take on a long project. Maybe buy for someone younger.Read More
I am very happy with this book. The quality is good, the questions are thought provoking, and overall it's just a good product. I can't wait to read what my loved ones will write about their lives!Read More
