You don't need to read the book to know that this is a worthwhile purchase.
Visit the website. If you like what you see there, you will like the book its that simple. I discovered postsecret accidently whilst surfing one day, now not a week goes past that don't visit.
There is something oddly comforting about reading other people's secrets, regardless of how horrific they are.
Everyone has a secret or two.
Reading this book, will make you realise that whatever your secret is, you are not alone.

Absolute beautiful, Postsecret is everything that is great about the internet. What started in 2004 with a few postcards inviting people to contribute a personal secret to a community art project soon grew into an internationally popular website with more than 3 million hits a week. This book is a reproduction of some of those postcards which have made the website such a joy.

Each of them is a work of art and a glimpse into the mind of a stranger. The scope of the secrets range from childhood confession to criminal guilt, and in each of them one can discern a considerable cathartic experience. Open the book at any point and you will find something to make you laugh or think about or even cry. One reads, "I envy the willpower of anorexics." Another, "Sometimes I put coins in people's parking meters." Another, "For the first time since I was a baby I am finally happy. I am 28"

Here is everything it means to be human combined into hundreds of brief, artistic portraits of long held secrets. A very special book indeed. A coffee-table book which will have everyone who opens it engrossed. If you don't believe me, visit [...] and see for yourself.

I had this book sent to me from amazon.com when it first came out in America. As soon as i found out there was to be a book i had to buy a copy of it. If you have ever seen the website at [...] (it links you to the blogspot) then you'll know what this book is going to be all about. When i see these postcards that people have sent in to Frank, i really start to relate to some of the cards. To be honest, when you are struggling with a problem and you see the exact thing that you are thinking about as a postsecret you realize that you are not alone in dealing with problems. I recieved the book and it is excellent. Well worth the money. After reading through it and lending it to a friend, who has now shared it with her friends i decided that i should get a couple more copies for other friends. This led to me buying two more copies of this book as well as pre ordering copies of the next two books. It's the kind of book that you can bring out when your with a group if friends and just all sit in silence, totally absorbed by the book untl someone relates to one of the cards and then you all share your feelings. It is an excellent book and i would advise you all to buy at least one copy for yourselves if not buy others for your friends.

I came across Postsecrets completely by chance while I was Chritmas shopping for my family. One quick flick through and I had to buy it. The beauty and honesty of the book is quite overwhelming. Every postsecret reveals a moment of great sadness, joy, despair, mischief - in fact every human emotion possible. The secrets are from real people and reading them is a hugely cathartic experience. I cried, laughed and was shocked at some of the secrets and I firmly believe that this is a book that should be at least read, if not owned by everyone!

I bought this book as soon as it was scheduled to be printed and waited for a few months exited to read all the odd, sad, wonderful and horrifying secrets of other people.

I have been to the website at least a 100 times, it is so comforting to read secrets that resembles your own, it makes you feel more normal :)

Go visit the website if you don't know the postcards, if you like it buy the book - it's that simple.

I love this book...for some time i would look at it on amazon, and consider buying it, but one day i just went for it, and i am so glad i did. It is a really emotive book that should not be taken at face value, when you read some of the entries you can really feel the sadness, pain, and sometimes even the sheer joy of the people who wrote in....and it makes you think..in all, this book is a must!

I was given this book as a secret santa present a few years ago and have since gifted it to at least five other people. I absolutely love it. Moving, funny, surprising, thought-provoking. You won't regret having this on your shelf.

Some really sad little secrets in here. A great book for putting by the loo so your guests can read about someone's desperate secret shame while they are having a poo and feel less lonely in their own guilt.
