The Big Book of Everything MK II

The Big Book is back!

I've gone through the original Big Book and made a few changes. The biggest ones are adjusting the Excel version so you can enter your information in without typing over anything. I've also added 5 new pages covering things like current resumes, schooling history, transcripts, and other contacts after a death. Hopefully the Big Book of Everything is even more complete now.

I've also talked with Mark Gavagan, the writer of the It's All Right Here and 12 Critical Things Your Family Needs to Know. He was very enthusiastic about the Big Book Mark II. Be sure to look at what he has to offer.

What is the Big Book of Everything?

In a nutshell, it is a notebook filled with all of the information anyone could possibly need to know about you. The idea is that in our lives we have countless things that we are involved in. On rare occasions, other people need this information and no one knows how to get it. That's where the Big Book comes in. By filling this out and keeping it current, you can simplify the effort others have to take on your behalf.

Uses for the Big Book are:

So, how long does this take to fill out?

Well you certainly could sit down and bang it all out in one sitting but that would take a long time, longer than it takes to do your taxes. Instead, I recommend tackling a page a day. There are forty-four pages in the book. Some pages will take you 10 minutes to fill out, while others might take a few hours. If you do a page a day, you should be done in about a month and a half.

Sounds great, but what does it cost?

Good question, it is free. Just download the PDF down below, print it out, and go to town.

If you want to, I'd love it if you purchased one my books.

If you find anything I left out of the Big Book, or you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Enjoy.
