A collection of Found magazine's best lost, tossed, and forgotten items , Found offers a fascinating glimpse into other people's lives.

Discarded valentines. Ransom notes. To-do lists. Diaries. Homework assignments. A break-up letter written on the back of an airsickness bag. Whether they are found on buses, at stores, in restaurants, waiting rooms, parking lots, or even prison yards, these items give readers an uncensored, poignant, and often hilarious peek into other people's lives. By collecting them in his hit magazine, Found (and its companion website, www.foundmagazine.com), Davy Rothbart has bewitched the nation with a surprising window into its heart and soul and turned his many readers into an army of sharp-eyed finders.

Found is chock-full of the latest and greatest of these finds, arranged in the style of the magazine, laying bare the tantalizing tales to be discovered in the trash we toss. By turns heartbreaking and hysterically funny, Found is a mesmerizing tribute to everyday life and our eternal curiosity about our fellow human beings.

An entertaining book. It's interesting to see the types of things that people write down, throw away, or lose!

Although the concept is a little different than most books of this type I think that it is more of a 15 to 20 minutes , here and there , coffee table type book.

It was sort of interesting to indulge in how the other half think and write. However alot of the material collected was hard to read due to penmanship (or lack there of). But it was really interesting reading all of the blurbs and notes found on the ground. Who knew?

A collection of found notations from around the world.. Some are humourus while others are disturbing.

Coarse Language: definitely a few " F" bombs.
