    This Book Rocks

    I love this book. It has made me laugh and cry and then laugh again. It is a book of self discovery. A friend gave me the book and I have faithfully used it. The title says it all 'It will change your life!'

    great book

    I purchased this book because i live a boring life and it caught my eye. Although not all of the 365 days of activities will be for everyone, there are a great number most people can complete. If you truely read this book follow its dirrections for each day your life does change, for better or worse, it changes and adds some fun top a humdrum everyday existance. Overall a great experiance.

    Changing Lives in TN

    What can I say other than this book totally rocks..if you want to break the molds of the ho hum lifestyle then you really need to check out this book. It will have you doing things you never thought you would ever try out. This wacky self-help guide contains daily journal pages so you can even fill in your thoughts for the days, and the catchy illustrations and anecdotes leave you wanting more and more. It will have you laughing so hard, your friends, family, and coworkers will all want their own copy. This would make a perfect gift for the person who has everything or just that crazy coworker or buddy in your life or how about a new 'bathroom book'...you may never come out of there..A must read if you want to laugh and spice up your life...just don't get arrested in the process...hahaha.

    Get it for the laugh value if nothing else

    Will this book really change your life if you do every task in it over the course of a year? Probably not - for one thing, in the current homeland-security-above-all-else climate in the US, a number of them are likely to get you maced, tazered, or worse.

    But.

    Who among us couldn't stand a push every now and then to break out of the humdrum routine of our daily lives? Some of the less far out suggestions in this thick paperback can certainly do that! I do think it's overpriced, considering you're supposed to tear out some of the pages in order to complete certain "tasks," but for all that, an entertaining read into the farther reaches of "what if."

    A reviewer

    Only buy this book if you don't care about going to jail or harming yourself. Such suggestions from the book include (1) downloading a computer virus and spreading it around and (2) playing Russian roulette with cars meaning you close your eyes while you merge. Other suggestions are just as harmful. This book might be amusing to have and flip through, however I found the text too small to read at times and the graphic backgrounds made it difficult to read the text. Read for amusement but don't ever do the suggestions.

    A great way to explore yourself!

    This book is an exploration of your inner self. It is a 365 day affirmation. Each day gives you different actives to test you on what your willing to do like trying an exotic fruit or tatoo a piece of fruit or propose to a perfect stranger. This book will expand yourself to no avail. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone willing to expand on emotions or inner willingness to do something different every day of the year!

    great gift book for the holidays

    This is a wacky gift book that would be great for the person you're not sure what to give. The book gives you instructions for living for the next 365 days. But the instructions are not like any mainstream Dr. Phil book. For example, one of the daily instructions is to make sure you have a friend from every racial/ethnic group. Call that something out of the ordinary! This book is not for the weak-hearted but will definetly get you thinking. Great for the intellectual in your group or just someone who likes to laugh.

    Absolutely Hysterical!

    From day 1 to day 365 this book is packed with ideas that will get you thinking and laughing. Along with eye catching illustrations on every page you will find a sometimes funny sometimes off the wall daily activity. Activities include everything from destroying photos that make you look ugly to performing a self medical exam. Whatever the daily activity you are sure to be laughing hysterically.

    crazy wacky funny

    This is way out there! This book will change your life like they say, but not necessarily in the right direction! It basically tells you what to do every day for 365 days, from today propose to a stranger to today crankcall the KKK (they give the actual number)...My favorite is 'today convince a friend to try cannibalism'. Definitely on my xmas list for grandma...Recommended!

    WOW! This Book is soooooo great!!!!!!!!!!

    My friend bought this book and let me take a look at it. It is so cool. There are just 365 simple things that you can do each day to make your day a little better. Stuff that doesn't really take too long but is still fun just the same.

    This book is great!

    It's hysterical. Some of it's nonsense factors make you laugh really hard. You can't help but wonder about the sanity of those who wrote this. It is a must read for anyone with a great sense of humor and makes a great gift!
