In his New York Times best-selling 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, and poetry, 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.

This book is for every teenager. Even if you think that teenagers do not have important problems, you are naive. Humans develop their first real problems around that age. Ignoring them will affect you later in life. Sexuality is an essential topic you should figure out yourself, because if you dont you will be confused forever. Depression is a very very serious topic and is actually common (even if you don't believe so). Connor talks about all that, through experience and theory he developed. And let me tell you that he is one of the most down to earth people you will ever hear. He is very very bright and you will actually be surprised by the way he talks about these topics.
You need to here this right now. I loved every second of it and I was very very sad when it ended. I want to hear more of this dude's philosophy. I want to be his apprentice. I want him to just talk and talk and talk to me. About anything. He makes everything so interesting, but gives seriousness when its due. He doesn't take lightly subjects that are actually serious.
You won't regret this.
PS: His voice is very very cute, so you will enjoy a "date" for 2 hours with this hottie.
"IM SO PROUD OF CONNOR"
HE PUT SO MUCH EFFORT IN THIS BOOK AND ITS SO AMAZING AND HEARTWARMING IM SO GLAD TO CALL HIM MY IDOL
" a fan of Con or not - u should read it."
the book is so personal that it only borderlines on names - there's no names. there's a lot of honesty, wonderful and short poems, suggestions, explanations and advices. you need to hear/read the chapter 43 if you're struggling with mental health. I don't like audiobooks, but listening to NTS is like having Connor beside you and listening to him talking to you.
definitely and highly recommended.
to the ones who claim it's all about his break up - it's not.
"Note to self"
This is truly beautiful! Keep up the good work connor,stay true to yourself! Love you!💞🌈
