Overview

DailyConfession.com was created as an outlet where people could confess their sins and unburden their souls in complete anonymity, as well as receive honest, compassionate responses from fellow Web users. As the Web site's popularity grew, visiting the site soon became a daily obsession for millions. Coming Clean comes directly from the Internet pages of DailyConfession.com. In this truly unique collection, author and webmaster Greg Fox has compiled the wildest and wackiest confessions and responses posted to the site. The confessions are organized into categories (loosely) based on the Ten Commandments, such as That Old Time Religion; Urges, Obsessions, and Fantasies; Stop, Thief!; Family Matters; and Liar, Liar! The confessions and responses included range from the serious and truly poignant - tales of true love, suicide, and spiritual waning - to the hilariously kooky - weird habits, alien abductions, and naked neighbors. Intensely entertaining, this book doesn't merely offer gratuitous voyeurism; it illuminates some intriguing - and surprisingly common - aspects of human nature. Those who dip into Coming Clean are bound to recognize themselves in the pages of this fascinating book.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Since 2000, DailyConfession.com has served as a haven "where people could unburden their souls and receive honest and humane responses." When Fox first launched the site, there were only a handful of visitors each day, but by December 2003, he had 8.5 million visitors a week. At the site, people confess to whatever they like, and other visitors respond. While Fox edits out "obscene, racist, or sexist rants" as well as "vicious" attacks on confessors, and promises to vet criminal material with the proper authorities, everything else stays, if Fox decides it's sincere. While such inclusivity may work online, pagefuls of repetitious responses can be tedious in a book. Predictably, sexual infidelity is a big theme, but there's also an extraordinary number of people reporting on pee, poop and fart obsessions. Most responses are variations on "you go girl," "you're pathetic," "euuuuw" or netspeak's "lol," except for the routinely sensible remarks by "Gramps" (who may be Fox's alter ego). Apart from its meandering, unfocused arrangement, the book suffers from competition-with itself. Why spend $12.95 on the book when the same material is available free, online? There, readers can also respond to what others are writing or confess to something and have people "lol" or "lmao" or even "roflma." Btw, a helpful glossary of netspeak is included. B&w illus.

    EXCELLENT, As I expected.

    I have been coming to the website for years, and I was happy to support Greg by purchasing a copy of his book to give back for the many hours of free entertainment he had given me. I am so glad I did, this medium is experiencing DC on a whole new level and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
