Review:

Strong is the urge to write one's life story as a keepsake for oneself and one's family. The difficulty is knowing where to start, and then where to go from there. Carl and David Marshall, a grandfather-grandson team, have created a fine and fun do-it-yourself autobiography. The cover of the journal-sized Book of Myself is intended to resemble handmade paper; the inside pages have the yellowed hue of a keepsake found in a musty attic trunk. The book is not especially pretty. But the questions--one per page, divided into early, middle, and late years, and then again into sections concerning family, friends, education, work and responsibilities, and the world--are good enough that it hardly matters. Among the 201 jumping-off points included here are questions concerning childhood toys, crushes, and forbidden exploits; adult embarrassments, betrayals, and achievements; and how one's views change over the years. --Jane Steinberg

About the Author:

David P. Marshall co-wrote The Book of Myself: A Do-it-Yourself Autobiography in 221 Questions with his grandfather, Carl Marshall. He is also the co-author, with his wife Kate, of: What I Love About You; The Book of Us: A Journal of Your Love Story in 150 Questions; Picture of Me: Who I Am in 221 Questions; What I Love About You, Mom; and My Life Map: A Journal to Help You Shape Your Future. He lives with his family in northern California.

Carl E. Marshall
spent a year writing a memoir about his early, middle and later years. He shared it with his family, which treasured his stories so much that he then worked with his grandson, David Marshall, to create a guided journal for others to write about their life as well. This became The Book of Myself: A Do-it-Yourself Autobiography in 221 Questions. Carl was a professor of Mathematics at Oklahoma State University and was known by his colleagues as "Mr. Statistics of Oklahoma."
