PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives

   My Secret: A PostSecret Book

PostSecret : is a series of at least five different books.  All are edited by Frank Warren.  It all began as a community art project one which encouraged people to submit hand decorated post cards on which were written the creators' very most deepest secret.  This project has since evolved from an art project, into books, seminars, and a website:

The creativity alone is amazing, but what really moved me was the humanity shown within the pages of postcards.  Within the pages an amazing range of emotions & personal experiences are covered/uncovered: despair, shame, unrest, hatred, disgrace, perversion, deception, desolation, abuse, joy, name it, you can find it here.

These offerings made me cry, laugh, and empathize with their writers.  I even saw two of my own secrets within the pages.

PostSecret is an open and refreshing look at humanity in all its glory, humility, honesty & despair.  Within these pages no stone is left unturned.

This is a must read for those studying the human condition.  Do not be surprised to find your deepest/darkest secret within.
