Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT BOOKS! Until I read this book, I only knew PostSecret from Frank Warren's blog which is on my weekly must-read list. I had resisted buying the previous books in the series because so often what's intriguing a few at a time becomes cloying when presented in a book. This was not the case with A LIFETIME OF SECRETS: A POSTSECRET BOOK. I couldn't put it down until I'd read it through, and it left me feeling introspective and deeply connected. For those not familiar with PostSecret, it began as a community art project in which Frank Warren ("America's most trusted stranger") invited people to send in secrets on decorated postcards. Every week he posts twenty of these anonymous postcards on his blog, PostSecret.com; a collection has traveled internationally as an art exhibit; and this is the fourth book of collected secrets. So many heart-rending postcards! People share their alienation, anger, fear, desire, and even pride. Why do they send their secrets to Frank? Would you? Have you? I haven't (and won't), but something about the secrets has huge sympathetic appeal. There's nothing new in human nature and we all carry the seeds of all these secrets. Some resonate in us more than others, but can you really say that any of the feelings expressed are completely alien? A LIFETIME OF SECRETS is the fourth book in the series. It's arranged roughly by the age of the secret-sharer, and this theme is certainly effective; you can, however, open it to any page and count on feeling a sense of kinship with the writer. I hope to keep this book for a while and will probably turn its pages many times. It's inevitable that some day I'll hear a friend mention something and I'll say, there's this book I HAVE to share with you; and they'll share it with someone else and I'll never see it again. And that's as it should be. (My secret: I hardly ever return books people lend me!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Read Absolutely wonderful! When I first sat down with this book I was only planning to read a few of the entries. Little did I know how addictive this book could be. Before I realized it I had finished it and was left wanting more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pass along these books! Another amazing Postsecret book. This one is quite large, which is just to my liking. Many more secrets to make you laugh, cry and gasp at. Check out www.postsecret.com every Sunday for new secrets. Have a secret yourself? Grab a postcard and send it in. Share it with the world...anonymously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as Expected! As with all the other postsecret books, this book is great. I enjoy reading about what other people carry with them. Makes for a good coffee table book that friends and company will enjoy.
