This book is a total find. It’s a diary that rules your life for the whole year, week by week (ex: in January sell mini-sexual favours all week like a hug for £1, or February: Commit all 7 sins this week. The idea is to destroy any chance you might have of leading a boring life. Personally I’m not sure I could cope with doing it for real (and I work for a solicitor’s so would probably get arrested for doing some of the stuff in there…), but even just looking through would make your year more interesting. Very funny. Great design. Recommended!

This diary is so cool. Although there isn't much space provided the originality and humor totally makes up for it. Some of the pages are hilarious, especially if you're having a bad day, guarenteed smile on your face. You get the cool mood meter and the weekly things to do, totally awesome. This is a definate must have, and would be great as a present too. One down side, there is the one page with some pretty gross pictures on however, but these can be avoided easily.

If you are looking for a diary with a twist, this is it. It organises and disorganises your life at the same time. It includes instructions in how to live every week next year. The instructions range from "Stalk a well-known writer and set up a memorable incident that will inspire their next novel" to "Volunteer for a medical experiment". I guess you're not supposed to read it ahead of time, but it's so funny you will not be able to stop yourself.

This is a hilarious little gem… For those not in the know, its a real diary that gives you ridiculous orders every day or week (today ask old people for advice before you do anything; volunteer for medical experiments; claim you’re Jesus Christ etc). The authors issue one every year and this is the new one for 2006. Last year's diary seemed expensive, but they seem to have got the message as this one’s a tenner (it’s shorter though…can’t have everything in this life I guess).

Some folk I know seem to follow this like Moonies, but you can just dip in and out and enjoy the insanity which is what I do. I haven’t looked through everything yet, but my favorite week so far: become a fundamentalist buddhist extremist (motto: relax or we kill you…)

And the cover is beautiful in a demented kind of way. I’m not sure any other book this Christmas will talk about mammoths “performing hideous sexual acts to escape from the ice ages”…

I was looking for something "different" this year, so I got a copy of "This Diary Will Change Your Life 2006". I used it for about six weeks and then just gave up. It's a good idea and fun to leaf through, but completely impractical as a diary, not the least because the pages between the diary pages made it difficult for me to find certain dates in a hurry. If your life is busy and you need a functional diary, look for something else. If you are looking for a laugh instead, this may be it. Some of the photos and other content are quite disturbing and non-PC, however, so sensitive souls beware.

If you call graphic images of worms , faeces , vomit and gory carcass of a lamb - Food Aversion Diet Week - ''nihilistic'', then this diary is for you. But if you are really looking for something cheerfully nihilistic and wryly humorous, you won't find it in this diary. As a diary it is pretty useless too: the space allocated for each day is too small, and there is no place to take notes.
