Review by: Stacey Rae Brownlie, Library Journal - April 1, 2013
In this updated edition of her 1998 how-to, Borg continues her more than 20-year mission to introduce senior citizens to the joys of writing their personal histories. The book, which was developed from class materials early in her workshop career, walks readers through the practical elements of writing a life story . . . VERDICT This title is ideal for those who want some basic help in getting their life story on paper, whether simply for the benefit of friends and family or for a broader public.
