Contents: "Your story will have much more resonance for your children and grandchildren than any biography or autobiography of a famous person. It's almost startling that making this kind of personal history hasn't always been an American custom ... The most precious commodities of all --
people's own recollections of their worlds --
seldom get preserved, at least in a proper and permanent way ... The purpose of this book is to help you along the way. If you know what questions to ask yourself, the answers almost take care of themselves --
you already know them, but you may not have thought about them in a while" --
p. 1-3.
Responsibility: Bob Greene and D.G. Fulford.
