5.0 out of 5 stars Doorway to another world opened again 30 Dec 2007
By Chee-ki
The doorway to another world has been opened again as I will be continuing my tasking for 2008
Has it helped change my life?
Well yes I have met some interesting people, developed new friendships. Become a little more daring.
This diary encourages you to open yourself up to new opportunities by enjoying life just that little bit more.
Whether you task or not, I'm sure you will find something to make you laugh in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars coolest diary on the market 12 Nov 2007
I've been buying Benrik's 'This Diary Will Change Your Life' for the last three years, and this is the best yet: stunning design and laugh-out-loud funny ideas of things to do every week in 2008 to shake your life up a bit. My favourite task is 'This week, freelance as a traffic warden' (with handy cut-out-and-keep freelance parking tickets -- you take 10% of the fine!) Genius

5.0 out of 5 stars Insane 5 Nov 2007
Even though you're only supposed to go through this book/diary one week at a time, I read the whole thing in one go. So I cheated, sue me, but: it's full of insane (and very funny) ideas as to how you might spend 2008, which involve annoying pretty much everyone from the dalai lama to Osama Bin Laden. Judging from the section about their regular readers at the back and what they get up to, some people take it a little too seriously, but even if you just dip into it now and again, it should cheer you up no end, if not actually "change your life".

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud funny again! 16 Dec 2007
By chinty
Well I really dont know how these guys do it!

I've been buying the diary for years now and of course giving many a copy as a handy Christmas present and every year it makes me and others crack up.
This one's equally as hilariously funny and imaginative as the rest and a must have to sit alongside the others. Considering I'm broke, get a free diary from work but still have to go out and purcahse this says a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly funny 14 Dec 2007
This is surprisingly amusing. I thought I was just ordering a diary for 2008 but it is in fact a satirical book, and full of surreal humour and rather beautiful if disturbing drawings. I don't think Amazon makes this clear (nor is it clear that there is a sticker on the cover, that you peel off), and it does have room for diary appointments and so on, but overall it surpassed my expectations. Very unusual. Recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars l like more the cover than its content. 29 Jan 2008
If you are interested buying this book consider that it is not a self-help book but rather a self-destroy, for it puts you doing ridiculous things, from being someones guardian angel to destroying someones reputation (Oh, and if you are a member of Greenpeace I strongly suggest not to buy it, for it contains a day that the 2 authors suggest spending a week literally destroying the environment, in the insane excuse of ,,taking revenge for Mother nature"). But is fun to read anyway...
