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.

            I love it, it's an amazing book and I can feel the emotion in each page. I don't read much, but it was almost impossible to put this book down.

              Connor Franta has yet again written a book that doesn't disappoint. Full of life experiences from his point of view and poetry with photography to match, you can't go wrong with Note To Self. No matter whether you've heard of the author before or not, this book is a wonderful representation of who he is as a person and you may be inspired to learn more. I've recommended it to many friends before and I will always do so.

                  So well written and very authentic. I related a lot to what was said and it's nice to know you're not alone. It great to see that this book highlights that everyone has struggles but you can overcome them. Pictures featured in the book are also stunning. Blows my mind how beautiful it is.
