In the vein of PostSecret comes this emotionally addictive and thrilling look at people’s deepest thoughts—some tragic, some funny, some adventurous—told anonymously and in their own handwriting.

The world is not made up of atoms; it is composed of tiny stories. And everyone has a story.

In 2009 in an Ann Arbor coffeehouse, Brandon Doman began asking passersby to share a story with him. Providing paper, pens, and clipboards, his only criteria was that the story had to be true. Doman then displayed selected stories on his website strangersproject.com. Astonishing in their honesty, intimate, powerful, sometimes chilling, and thoroughly addictive, the stories became an Internet hit. Over the past five years, Doman’s personal passion project—10,000 stories strong and growing—has continued to engage strangers of all ages and backgrounds and has transformed into a powerful movement of readers and storytellers who use the project’s anonymity as a gateway to reflect, rejoice, heal, and connect through words.

Now, Doman has carefully chosen 200 stories that capture the essence of The Strangers Project. Introduced by Doman, the stories convey the range of human experience, from the humorous to the heartbreaking to the profound, and are arranged to mirror the common encounters that happen between strangers every day.

He currently shares stories online and in exhibits, and continues to talk to strangers. He lives in Brookly...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this book! Such a fun idea. Insight and reminders that we are all just humans, making our way through the stories of our lives. Not everyone is what and who you expect them to be. Beautiful premise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT The pages are filled with individuality and real stories. Some were hard to read, but an absolutely great purchase. Personally, I related to some of the stories and it was amazing that this was started just at a coffee shop with a sign in sharpie.
