From award-winning vlogger and entrepreneur Connor Franta comes this collectible hardcover edition—complete with a brand-new bonus chapter—of his New York Times bestselling memoir, A Work in Progress, which was selected by Forbes as a Top 5 Breakthrough Book of 2015 and won the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Memoir.

In this intimate memoir of life beyond the camera, YouTube star Connor Franta shares the lessons he has learned on his journey from small-town boy to Internet sensation—so far. Here, Connor offers a look at his Midwestern upbringing as one of four children in the home and one of five in the classroom; his struggles with identity, body image, and sexuality in his teen years; and his decision to finally pursue his creative and artistic passions in his early twenties, setting up his thrilling career as a YouTube personality, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and tastemaker.

Exploring his past with insight and humor, his present with humility, and his future with hope, Connor reveals his private struggles while providing heartfelt words of wisdom for young adults. His words will resonate with anyone coming of age in the digital era, but at the core this is a timeless message for people of all ages: don’t be afraid to be yourself and to go after what you truly want.

This full-color collection includes photography and exclusive childhood clippings and is a must-have for anyone inspired by his journey.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Connor I bought the hardcover version when Connor made a video saying that all of the hardcover books would be autographed, and that there were only a limited amount of them. I bought it, and I'm always happy to buy these "youtuber books" because I am able to learn about them and their life :)
