I bought this as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend and she was absolutely delighted with it. I would definitely recommend this as an ideal present for a friend or loved one who is a bit of a 'doodler' or often finds themselves at a loose end. One word of warning though...I was sitting minding my own business when the book was sent rushing centimetres past my head. Apparently the page my girlfriend had opened instructed her to do something spontaneous and unexpected with the journal. You have been warned

I bought one of these journals last year and had a thoroughly wonderful time being outrageously silly. I even took it for a drag round a park...much to the bemusement of the people walking their dogs. I was a tad anal about journalling up to usig this book, which I found incredibly liberating.

I bought the 'wreck this journal' showed it a friend and she's going to get one for herself and each of her daughters. What it isn't, is a model for an art journal e.g. day pages, representation of an event, scrapbook etc. For me this is more about breaking the normal rules of what you do with a book, see pages on 'flickr'for examples/ pictures of what other people have done with their journals. You can also go on the authors website to see ideas/ examples. Each page has an instruction on a way to alter/wreck a page/ the cover/ binding, for example doodle on the cover, tear a page out, put it into the pocket of your clothes and put it in the washing machine, when you've done that stick it back in the book. It reminded me of an art installation I went to see some years ago of some flowers in a case that were left in a window for weeks. The artist actually wanted to see the process of decay and how that would look. The flowers were dried up and crumbling when I saw them, but had their own kind of beauty.
If you are a bit of a perfectionist and are scared of the blank page or don't like to break the rules this should free you up a bit. The book isn't that expensive so it's kinda liberating to take it in the shower with you and see how it looks when you're done. I'm taking pictures of the process and will put it on my facebook page when I'm done. It's a fun exercise in loosening up and I would recomend it on that basis.
It's also interesting to note which instructions you are resistant to, I'm really struggling with the idea of tying a string round it and taking it for a walk - not least because the neighbors will think I'm mad LOL. And I really don't want to give a page to a friend to wreck it. Tells you a lot about yourself and what you are prepared to let go of and what you are not. It may also unblock you creativitly speaking - that's what I'm hoping for.

If you are a twelve year old looking for ways to rebel against the limitations of your colouring book, then this is the book for you, however, if you are an adult, looking for creative inspiration, go to a gallery, go to the supermarket, go to the toilet, in fact go any place except anywhere near this book.
Ironically, I did the most creative thing I could possibly do with it, and destroyed it. Very satisfying.

I bought this as a birthday present for my younger sister, as she'd mentioned a few months ago that she wanted it. When I gave it to her, along with another present, the result was half an hour sat on my bed with the book, looking through it and trying out some of the activities suggested. I was surprised - and briefly annoyed - at one point when she suddenly threw the book at me, thankfully not very hard as we were sitting quite close, and then amused once she showed me the page she had been reading, which fully justified her actions!

I would definitely recommend this book and would like to point out that it is even more fun with a friend, so consider buying it as a present for someone close to you, and completing it together.

My 12 year old daughter requested this for the summer holiday - and what a brilliant buy it has been. It has kept her busy as there are quite a lot of different things to do and it has really stimulated her imagination with some of the things she's coming up with. She seems to be having a great time with it.
I'd thoroughly recommend this for kids of a similar age or older (yes, even adults who'd like something a bit whimsical and different to do!). Younger ones would probably need some help but may enjoy it.

I bought this for my 17 year old daughter who has severe obsessive compulsive disorder by recommendation of a friend who has it too and it is, to put it bluntly, fantastic. She is pushing herself to do things that she thought she wouldn't be able to do when she first read through it. That in itself is an amazing thing but to see her really push the boundaries of what she thought she was able to do and surpass them is fantastic. I think it is a great journal for any teen, artistically inclined or not. It really is something very very different from any book/journal I have seen before and giving it five stars really doesn't do it justice. I know it is trendy and will probably be a bit of a fad but it has helped one very upset daughter laugh for the first time in so long. So much so that I have bought one for me to help her do the things that she is going to struggle with so that we can do them together.
