Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Brilliant"

    This (audio) book is great. It's nice to see a more personal side of Connor and so many times it's very relatable.
    Also, I really enjoy listening to Connor's voice, so him reading this book is obviously a book plus.

    "Brilliant"

    A piece of literature that makes one reflect on one self. Brilliantly written and reminds us to be who we are no matter what. I'm definitely gonna be reading this book again as Connor's life experiences teaches us about how no one is alone with a single problem in the world and how each of us are a beautiful mess. The use of poems in between creates a unique insight into the state of mind of the writer, enabling us to tune into the same emotions he feels and helps us reflect on such emotions we experience ourselves. Connor's positive outlook towards who we are and who we are reminds us we can be whoever we want to be if we put our mind to it. Such a young successful man definitely one of my new icons I'll be following for the rest of my life. Thanks Connor!

    "Thoughtful, Deep and Satisfying"

    I must say this book gives an excellent insight into the life of someone who struggles with bouts of depression. With Franta's deep self-analysis and grounded language, it makes his journey very accessible and has the potential to help people see the lighter side of life. Plus, it's a great and surprisingly low-key insight into the world of one of YouTube's big stars.

    " 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.

    "Expected more"

    Was expecting for it to be deeper, to know more about you as a person, this didn't show me more than your videos do. Not enough detail. Some parts were simply too depressing. I understand that some may need it but for those who don't a lot of thr book is pretty irrelevant. I found it hard to connect to it, some parts were great. Better luck next time around Conor.

    "Blown"

    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.

    "An excellent depiction of life's raw emotion"
    What made the experience of listening to Note to Self the most enjoyable?

    Let's be honest, I'm not Connor's core audience. I'm an older, generation X gay male who has gone through personal struggles young on in my life. My journey included losing my mother to early onset Alzheimer's and the battle of that started when she was only 47. As she fought the disease, I stood by her side during my 20's, missing out on the common growth of a 20 year old. So, while I cannot relate to the pain of a broken heart of a romantic relationship at this age, I have enough to appreciate how difficult it is to share pain with others. Connor has this incredible gift with words that allows you to feel what it was like in the heart wrenching time and allows you to connect with him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    As Connor described his relationship ending, you could tell it was genuine. You could still hear the rawness of pain in his voice that no one other than the person who experienced it could do justice. I believe one of Connor's greatest gifts is that he can take his experience and make them feel it too.


    Any additional comments?

    Great job on this just second book. You sound like a seasoned author already. I look forward to the next one and hope some time you take a stab at fiction. I would love to see what stories you could come up with!

    "Phenomenal!"

    Reading or in this case listening to a book and knowing the words are important and real and the images blossoming in my imagination are even more important cause it's my mind that allows the words to come to life. I'm beyond amazing at how phenomenal of an author Connor is. From A Work in Progress to Note to Self I can't help but be amazed at how much he has grown. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I absolutely loved it!
