I got this as a gift about four years ago and still look at it every couple months. I love Post Secret books. It's amazing how touching and relatable they are, yet at the same time, how funny they are. Post Secret books make excellent gifts and are great to have in the living room to start conversation. Anyone can relate to these.

Inspiring secrets.

I enjoyed the book and liked the deep and inspiring secrets, however, I do not know if this book is worth this much. Once you read the secrets once or twice, the book pretty much just sits on the bookshelf.

    Interesting Read

    My husband would have rated this book higher, I'm sure. We will be purchasing the other books by Frank Warren. The entries were sometimes shocking, sometimes sad, and sometimes funny. Gives one a sense of community - that he/she is not the only one who has ever felt this way.

    three

    i'm a huge fan of postsecret and check out the site every sunday. i keep secrets i especially like saved on my computer and ipod.<BR/>so i was very anxious to open this book on christmas eve. i knew it was a postsecret book, [i didn't know which], so i chose it for my one present. first of all i'll say i had expected the book to be thicker. this was strike one.<BR/>also i feel as if they should have used glossy paper in these books. it isn't as if frank couldn't afford it. instead it's regular paper and the quality looks about the same as what you could print off from your own computer at home. on some of the more stretched out postcards the text blurs.<BR/><BR/>but overall i'm very pleased to have recieved this as a gift. i would think that any big fan of postsecret could look past the two complaints mentioned above and consider this a fine book to add to their collection.

    it'll keep you entertained for an hour

    it was interesting, but i dont think it's good for much more than a bathroom book. I had finished half of it on the car ride home.

    Love the site, less than impressed with the book...

    I anxiously awaited the release of the Post Secret book. I've been visiting the website regularly for some time now, and I am always moved by the sometimes witty but always honest 'secrets' that are exposed every week. It was with great disappointment that I flipped through the book. The postcards are still there, the secrets still entertaining, still touching, but the format of the book left something to be desired. Some of the pages were separated in groups of four postcards which made for a quick easy glimpse, but some had one postcard stretched over two pages, making it almost impossible to read. The overall layout was really just not impressive at all, and detracted from enjoying the messages on the cards.

    Disappointing

    I was very excited when I purchased the book in fact, I never even skimmed it before buying it. Too bad I neglected to do so since I have seen many of the postcards in the collection. Unfortunately most of them have been posted online, on the post secret website or some other places, such as the exhibit. As most of them are unforgettable and hard hitting, I felt like I was seeing the same old stuff again and again. So, my advice is, if you are/were a faithful follower of the website then you may want to think twice about purchasing the book since you have probably seen most of the ones in the collection.
