Summary

Kit Caless has something to tell you. 

When Kit was a child, his father worked for the UK Ministry of Defence’s security forces. But Kit didn’t know it at the time—he wasn’t allowed to know. And reflecting on that, he finds himself thinking about other secrets.

Keeping a secret alters everything. How you view yourself. How you act in social groups. How you interact with a loved one, a boss, a colleague, a neighbour. 

Depending on the context, being asked to keep a secret can make you both trustworthy and untrustworthy; powerful and powerless; reliable and unreliable. Secrets are dynamic, they move from person to person, location to location. 

Secrets are hard. They hurt. But they also bond. 

Secrets is a book about who holds secrets, why, and what the impact of holding a secret can have on you, the community around you, and society in general.

But don’t tell anyone that.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What’s with the sh*t background mood music??

I’m really enjoying the book, but the music and background noise is driving me nuts.

Please put out a version without the ****ing lift music.

Why? Interesting topic. Good writing / narrator. Beep beep be boop boop be beep beep be boop boop…

Arrrrrrrrrrgh!

Brilliant, insightful, enlightening book

Secrets are all around us, and everyone has at least some. In this superb and utterly fascinating book, Kit Caless explores the subject with intelligence, humour, humility and insight - his own, and that of the brilliant contributors he involves. I found every chapter thought-provoking, and the psychology is really interesting. My only criticism (and cause of lost star) is that his reading speed is a little slow - especially after listening to Sir Ken Robinson, who I found a bit too quick - but easily remedied by listening to this at 1.2 speed, which was perfect. Highly recommend.
