About this ebook

From the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of A Work in Progress comes a collection of Connor Franta's most intimate, raw, honest, and inspiring reflections on his own life as he's living it right now, as well as his observations about contemporary culture. Told through narrative, poetry, photography, and illustrations, this is a must-have for every fan.

In his New York Times bestselling memoir, A Work in Progress, Connor Franta shared his journey from small-town Midwestern boy to full-fledged Internet sensation. Exploring his past with humor and astounding insight, Connor reminded his fans of why they first fell in love with him on YouTube—and revealed to newcomers how he relates to his millions of dedicated followers.

Now, two years later, Connor is ready to bring to light a side of himself he’s rarely shown on or off camera. In this diary-like look at his life since A Work in Progress, Connor talks about his battles with clinical depression, social anxiety, self-love, and acceptance; his desire to maintain an authentic self in a world that values shares and likes over true connections; his struggles with love and loss; and his renewed efforts to be in the moment—with others and himself.

Told through short essays, letters to his past and future selves, poetry, and original photography, Note to Self is a raw, in-the-moment look at the fascinating interior life of a young creator turning inward in order to move forward.

Interesting writing but also contradictory statements regarding one's view of himself vis a vis the world. Uncertainty and contingency with an effort to be positively negative and negatively positive are the main ingredients of the author's message.

This book is amazing. I love everything about it. I do have a tiny problem. I preordered the book before it came out and you would figure that it would appear in my library but it hasn't. It's been weeks and I don't know how to fix this.

Connor is a great person and I am a huge fan. Many people think to Youtube is dumb and a waste of time but this will show you why we watch these people. Because overall, they help us through life.
