The World of Post Secret

An addictive collection of new full-color postcard secrets and app secrets from the author of the smash bestselling PostSecret books—with more secrets than any previous PostSecret book!

A decade ago, Frank Warren began a community art project that captured the popular imagination and became a worldwide obsession. He handed out postcards to strangers and left them in public places—asking people to share a secret they had never told anyone and mail them back to him anonymously. More than half a million secrets, 600 million hits to the award-winning PostSecret blog, and five huge bestsellers later, the PostSecret phenomenon is bigger than ever. By turns this funny, heartbreaking, thoughtful, and moving, this compendium of graphic haiku offers an intimate glimpse into both individual private lives and into our shared humanity.

Included in this compelling new book are dozens of the best archived secrets from the original PostSecret app; inside stories about the most controversial secrets Frank Warren has received; moving text from the new PostSecret play, foreign secrets, "puzzle" secrets, and much more!

My Review

I have never heard of these books of that people were ever doing this. My first thought is "Wow, I can't imagine sharing a dark secret with a stranger". Yet then my next thought was after reading some of the secrets is "What do you have to lose about sharing your secret with someone you have never met. It might be therapeutic." Which reading some of the secrets that people were willing to share, they felt very comfortable sharing their secrets. Although some of them made me wonder what happened to the people now...did their tell their family, spouse, friend? Are they happy now? You could say that I felt a connection with these people and their secrets. This book is a good table book.
