I love Post Secret books. It's amazing how touching and relatable they are, yet at the same time, how funny they are. This one is small compared to the other Post Secret books, but it packs the same punch. It held my attention for the hour I spent reading it and I know I will go back and read it many more times. Post Secret books make excellent gifts and are great to have in the living room to start conversation. Anyone can relate to these.

This is a great book to look at/read if you need a "pick me up" or a good cry... some are ful of great ideas, others are funny, yet some are just wrong but the book is great regardless.

i read this book and i feel as if many people can relate to other people secrets so we are not alone in this world.

I think we all can relate to a stranger in some way. Every one of Frank's books gets you to do just that. Flipping through the pages you will find something someone you know, someone you trust, and probably something you need to admit youself. I now check 'Sunday Secrets' on postsecret dot com every week to find something new. I even sent one in myself. This is a great look at your fellow human and the fact no one really tells the whole truth.

Extremely a voyeuristic sort of way.

Perhaps in response to the second book in the series (My Secret) being dedicated to the secrets of teens and young adults, this book is full of the secrets of adults. Author Frank Warren originally began the PostSecret project as an art project collecting postcards designed by anonymous strangers who revealed secrets along with their artwork. Secrets range from the humorous to the heartbreaking, on such diverse topics as parenthood, marriage, sex, faith, religion, suicide, homosexuality, and so on. Each postcard is a snapshot of a story, totally engrossing in its own right. Combined, the book is one of those that the reader is unable to put down until finished.

Summary: Secrets captured on postcards.The Take-Away: Frank Warren started with 3,000 postcards, inviting strangers to send him their secrets as part of an art project. Today, over 100,000 postcards are displayed on his website. Every Sunday, a new set is posted.I've been reading PostSecret since October 2005. The three books I read this month made me think, laugh and feel a little less stressed. Just the idea of knowing that someone else has the same secret as you makes the burden easier to bear.I've never mailed in a secret. I've seen mine there.Recommendation: Make the website part of your regular weekly reading and check out the books too.

The Secret Lives of Men and Women is the third book in an ongoing series of books that are compiled from cards sent to Warren as part of an art project started several years ago. What began as an art project has, I think, has become a phenomenon...everywhere I go online these days it seems like Warren and his postcards are being talked about. From my perspective, PostSecret and the Secret Lives of Men and Women (the second book still leaves me non-plused) are wonderfully innovative and I think will continue to have an impact on people for years to come! There is something very moving about opening up a book and seeing the innermost feelings of others...some that are so spot on to how one has felt in the past and others so alien as to break one's heart...but all are inspiring in their own way. You get humor (some of these are funny beyond description), heartwarming, disgusting, silly and even heart-wrenching...they run the gamut of human emotion and drag the reader (willingly and happily) along for the ride. Like the second book, this third book is significantly shorter than the first book, but here we have a return to the amazing impact the first book has...I was much more moved (in a variety of ways) while reading this book...I've read it three times since picking it up from the library (and I'll be buying one this upcoming payday). All three would make great coffee table books and/or discussion group choices (though you could easily miss the second and be none the worse for it). In the end, I'd recommend this without hesitation and I'll definitely be adding a copy to my permanent library. Wonderful stuff...I give it five stars AND two thumbs up! There is something universal about this book...I think we can all see a bit of ourselves somewhere in the book and knowing that someone else shares our secret is one of the best feelings there is!

The new Post secret book. While not very brain stimulating, I've currently got three other books in the works. If you don't know about the post secret project check out Also, this is presented in the same way as the other two post secret books.

Really odd. But I did love this. I need to go through this every day. Some secrets made me want to laugh, others made me want to cry, some made me realize that I am not alone and yet others made me hope that only one person had this secret. A quick read, but delicious all the same.

More from the organizer of PostSecret. As with the previous volumes and the web site, some secrets are funny, some touching, some horrible. I'm always impressed by the creativity the senders put into their cards. This book is much shorter than the previous books.

It's no surprise that Frank Warren has produced another successful compilation of PostSecret. I'm never dissatisfied when looking into the lives of all these people and feeling enriched and a part of their lives as I agree with their secrets. It's all people like you and me living life together. Other than the high price, the book really is a great work of art.
