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.
Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
I love ALL of these Post Secret books! Each book contains new secrets, some whimsical, some so dark they hurt. Filled with artwork, doodles, photos....and secrets, of course. (Sorry, can't say anything new for each book so am using same review for each one. I own them all, they are that interesting!)
PostSecret Educates and Illuminates Suicide Prevention & Fundraising
There are many routes into the PostSecret universe - museum exhibitions, a friend's social media feed, browsing in a bricks and mortar bookstore or online bookseller and the proverbial grapevine. The brainchild of Frank Warren, PostSecret's core mission is raising awareness and funds for suicide prevention via book sales, events and donations.
September 4 through 8, 2011 marks the 37th annual National Suicide Prevention week and world suicide prevention day takes place September 10. The most chilling and recent statistics from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention ranks suicide among the top ten causes of death in the United States.
Confessions on Life, Death, and God is the fifth book in the PostSecret series. Best described in Warren's own words, "This book was inspired by a collection of more than three hundred postcards that were part of an exhibition at the American Visionary Museum called "All Faiths Beautiful. The never-before-seen secrets between these pages were chosen to expose the common landscape of our private lives - from our embarrassing desires to our hidden acts of kindness; from the private prayers of atheists to the voiceless doubt of believers."
Each genre-bending tome is too beautiful to hide on a bookshelf and too intense to leave alongside the toilet. The bedrock of PostSecret and the series of books are the hauntingly exquisite anonymous postcards. Messages tear at the reader's gut and tears tumble freely. Only apathetic stoics escape the searing pain of the sender.Read more ›
