#1 New York Times Bestseller (New York Times)

From the Back Cover

For the past four years, Frank Warren, known as "the most trusted stranger in America," has invited people all over the world to send him creatively decorated postcards bearing secrets they have never before revealed. He has shared these PostSecrets on his blog, in an internationally traveling art exhibit, and in four electrifying and bestselling books: PostSecret, My Secret, The Secret Lives of Men and Women, and A Lifetime of Secrets.

Warren's fifth book presents a never-before-seen collection of the most personal PostSecrets he's ever received—those dealing with life, death, and issues of faith and belief. The book lays bare the confessions of people at every stage of life, from every major faith (or from no faith). Warren's latest collection of secrets is his most profoundly moving yet.


More About the Author

Frank Warren started PostSecret as a community art project where he invited total strangers to anonymously mail in their deepest secrets on a homemade postcard. The response was overwhelming with Frank receiving over 1,000,000 anonymous postcards and counting.

All six PostSecret books have been on the New York Times Best Seller List. PostSecret Confessions on Life Death and God reached #1.

PostSecret.com has won three Webby Awards for "Best Blog on the Internet" and is today the most visited advertisement-free blog in the world with nearly 700,000,000 "visits".

The project has raised over $1,000,000 for suicide prevention and Frank Warren was awarded the Mental Health Advocacy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011 and was invited to the White House to share his thoughts on mental wellness in 2013. His TED talk is one of the most watch with over 2,500,000 views.

The postcards have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Visionary Art Museum in Maryland and there is a PostSecret album and play.

Frank lives in Germantown, Maryland, with his wife and daughter, and dog, Shadow (but his wife wants to move to California).

Yet another great read in the series of Postsecret books!
Kimberly R. Smith
I think this new book takes the emotional aspects (all kinds: good, bad, funny, sad, thoughtful, etc.) to a whole new level.
Buriner
This book is incredible, just like the other Post Secret books, but it has a diffrent feel that is unexplainable.

I had the chance to experience the new PostSecret book last week while on the train with my girlfriend. It was the perfect way to spend the time and we both loved reading, sharing, laughing, and enjoying all of the secrets.

I think this new book takes the emotional aspects (all kinds: good, bad, funny, sad, thoughtful, etc.) to a whole new level. You can tell that the secrets were painstakingly chosen by Frank to give the reader an emotional roller coaster ride throughout.

As mentioned by other reviewers, there are more secrets than in previous books that touch on the subjects of religion and death, but it should be noted that there are secrets of all genres in this book (the term "life" in the title is rather broad I guess). I think it's a great mix, but what I really enjoy about this book is that I feel it causes the reader to reflect personally on the secrets more than in the previous releases. I felt that there were more secrets that made me think and wonder about my own life. And I think that's what makes PostSecret (and this book in particular) so powerful.

Although some of the reviews on here are very critical of the new size of the PostSecret book, I personally find that the "postcard" size is a positive departure from the other books. I feel like it allows the reader to focus in on each individual secret. Plus, there are no "blown up" secrets as in the other books which sometimes spread across the crease in the page. I think the small size gets the reader the same experience that you get when reading the secrets on the website each week (scrolling down one by one). Plus, I like the small size because it's a bit more portable...more "sharable" if you will.

As someone else said, this book is a little bigger than the size of a postcard. That wouldn't have bothered me if wasn't priced the same as the other books twice its size. I don't think this should have cost $23. Anyway, it did have some good, juicy secrets. Someone said they were all about religion, death and love, but there were some others sprinkled here and there that didn't completely fit into those categories. At least I thought so. This book is worthwhile, but you might want to wait until it's on the sale rack to buy it.

Format: Hardcover
I'm not completely sure what it is that makes the PostSecret concept appeal to me so much. I picked up the latest book, PostSecret: Confessions on Life, Death, and God by Frank Warren at the library today, and devoured it in a single sitting. As with the website and all the other books, I felt a range of emotions as I peeked into the private lives of ordinary people sharing things that they've held close for years. And reading these secrets made me realize that I could easily add a few of my own to the collection...

Thinking about the draw for me, the best I can come up with is the naked emotion, the raw openness of the people who send in the numerous postcards received by Warren every day. There are people who have spent their entire lives playing "what if" with a lost love. Others have lost loved ones and have permanent regrets over things said and done (or not done). And because this edition has an emphasis on God and belief, there are more than a few secrets that deal with age-old questions. But its not without some humor either. You have to laugh at the person who works for an atheist newsletter yet secretly believes in God. Or the person starting rabbinical school, but loves bacon. I can see some late-night undercover trips to fast food restaurants for burgers with bacon... :)

I also admire the artistic creativity in the postcards and those who send them. If these cards were nothing but words on a blank white space, they'd lose a lot of their impact and message. But the pictures add to the weight of the secret. There's the picture of a chair, where the sender confesses he was beat by his mom and dad while tied to it. There's the receipt that a guy found in his girfriend's purse, highlighting a purchase of Trojan condoms but they've never had sex together.

Excellent book, similar to those released prior with the exception of being smaller in size. An easy read for a spare hour or two, filled with vivid illusrations- perfect for the coffee table. Content is personal, moving, and connects the reader to humanity.

My daughter wanted this book and has all the others. She loves it.
I think it makes her think that her secrets are not all that bad
since many of these can be. I guess we all want to think our
thoughts are normal and this just validates that for her.

I have all of the Postsecret books and was surprised when this one showed up at about half the size of all the others. I wish there were more secrets but the quality of the book is good and the secrets are on point with the title.

Format: Hardcover
Even though this is the fifth PostSecret book, the project never loses its poignancy. The latest release continues to tug its audience through a turbulent ride of humor, anger, pain, regret, joy, and pride. Do not be fooled by its title "Confessions on Life, Death, and God." While there are spiritual secrets, surrounding faith or a lack there of, the collection is not limited to religion and deities. Additionally, the new format of a single postcard per page versus the traditional two or four secret per page set up encourages a more authentic experience, as though the reader were holding the actual postcard in her or his hand. And as with all the books, come the final page, you can't help wishing there were more.
