LifeBook is the world’s leading private autobiography service.
More than 8000 people already enjoy owning the life story of someone they love. Each book is a unique piece of family history, a custom-made, handcrafted treasure, to be shared by generations to come.
It’s an audio treasure as well as a printed one too, with the one-hour recording you make as you read favourite extracts from your book.
LifeBook is designed to bring you and your loved ones untold pleasure. A truly moving experience, yet one that couldn’t be easier.
It’s time to tell your story.
First you just have to talk to one of our interviewers. Each one has been specially chosen to help you tell your story over the course of twelve 90-minute conversations.
All these face-to-face interviews take place using video, which couldn’t be easier. We’ll set you up with whatever device you have, or even loan you one, and make sure you’re comfortable using it.
We’ve also introduced a secure 'no touch’ pick-up & return service for all the photographs and significant documents you’d like to be copied, so they can feature in your book.
Next you simply read and review. Every minute of your conversations has been recorded and entrusted to one of our ghostwriters, chosen for their ability to write your story in your ‘voice’.
When you’re happy with your manuscript, complete with photographs and significant documents, it’s time for the third and final stage: production.
Soon 10 copies of a beautifully bound, section-sewn, linen-covered, hardback book will be delivered directly to you and the family and friends you’ve chosen to receive a ‘first edition’.
Which leads to the fourth stage. Sharing and enjoying your LifeBook, your very own private autobiography, with those who matter most to you.
We could not have completed my mother’s autobiography without LifeBook.- Ana Gracey, Barbara Thompson’s daughter

We can’t thank Alan enough for being our perfect teammate and for entrusting us with the production of a book that means so much to him and his family. - LifeBook Author
Unfortunately, just three days before they were about to interview, my father did pass away, and so I don’t have the LifeBook, which is one of my greatest regrets. - Ariel Eckstein – LinkedIn
