This is why I'm a poor man I never get ideas like this! Imagine a scheme in which you advertise for people to anonymously send you, at their expense, a postcard divulging their innermost secret s. Then you sit back for a few days and wait for the postcards to come in, sort them, and publish the best ones in a series of books.

Then hire a guard to escort you and your money to the bank. I feel a little guilty counting this as a book read, as it was put out with a minimum of effort by the write This is why I'm a poor man I feel a little guilty counting this as a book read, as it was put out with a minimum of effort by the writer; it's essentially a collation of work that originated with other people.

Having said that, the book nicely accomplishes what it sets out to do in that it presents the postcards as a surprisingly effective art form for your consideration. Some are funny; others will break your heart. It's worth the couple of hours it will take to look it over. View 2 comments. Jan 24, Alexandra rated it liked it.

Jul 30, Tamara Lane rated it it was amazing. Wow, what a powerful project! Kudos, Mr. I hope the contributors of this book found some healing in the divulging of their secrets.

It's upsetting to know there is so much heartache in the world. I'd like each secret teller to know Jesus is the ultimate healer. Shelves: art , readbooks-male-author-or-illust , z , zz-4star , non-fiction , biography , reviewed. The structure of the postcards going through the lifespan, from children to older adults, worked well. Some of these are poignant, some funny, some inspiring, some tragic, but most are a bit tame, and some seem obviously crafted for the purpose of this project.

I did identify with several of the secrets, and the one I enjoyed the most was the person who said that the day they turned 11, they waited all day for an acceptance card into Hogwarts. Completely understood that one. I also loved the person that posted their secret on a bathroom stall door and came back later and found that many more people had added notes with their own secrets. However, there was a sizable minority that did make sense to me.

I have this on my art and biography shelf; many of the postcards include art or some creativity besides writing on the part of the senders. It is hard to be human. I enjoyed this but I think viewing these on the website would suffice for me. May 11, Kelly H. Maybedog rated it it was amazing Shelves: what-self-improvement , what-nonfiction , what-art.

I struggle with how to classify this book. It's part memoir, part art, part sociology, part psychology, part voyeurism: a look into the most private lives of strangers. However you classify it, though, it's fascinating. There are recurrent themes among these cards: infidelity, abuse, self-hatred, denial, and so forth, most of them sad or even tragic. Others are beautiful and touching, like the picture of three lovely young women and the caption "I adopted your daughters and I want you to know they're growing up to be terrific young women.

Thank you, all three of you, for the greatest gift of all. Another is simply a single lit match and the line, "I'm going to change the world! But over all, like the other books in the series I have read, the book is brilliant, simply brilliant. And boy is Frank Warren smart! What an easy and fabulous way to get other people to make up the bulk of a book you publish and not have to pay them! Not a criticism, I'm impressed.

I'm kind of flabbergasted over this book. It's such a simple concept, but I love how well done it is. Essentially this book is made up of the secrets we know in our hearts but can never admit. People write them down on a postcard and submit them - this book is all of their secrets. Some of them were funny.

They were things like 'I can't help but shake up fizzy drinks' to 'I baptized my dog in my living room. They were things like 'I am preparing for a life alone' to Wow. They were things like 'I am preparing for a life alone' to 'I handed the most important person in my life the drugs that killed him.

They were things like 'I want to grow old and wrinkly with you. I love you' to 'For New Years I did not go on a diet. Instead I threw away my scale. It's the best resolution I have ever made. I constantly found myself looking down as though I would see a thread where people could respond to the confessions.

When I reminded myself to just read the confessions and try to feel something on my own, I found it far more provoking. It made me laugh. Some of them made me cry. The book as a whole was honest and that's more refreshing than anything else. May 28, Janelle rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: everyone - we all have secrets.

Of the 3 follow-ups to the original, this is my favorite.
