I am bit surprised by the huge number of stellar ratings of this memoir, unless they are by young people and fellow youtube fans of the author. I was mostly annoyed that a young man with a supposedly perfect family and very few obstacles feels that he can give fairly judgmental advice to older pe...

"Who are you? Answer; you are who you are in this given moment. Label-less. Limitless. Remember that from this day forward."
This memoir was so genuine and honest, so inspiring and raw, I related to so many things Connor talks about and agreed so hard with so many things he says. Such h...

First off, let me mention that this is the first memoir I've ever read. Second, I want to mention that I like Connor and his videos, but I'm definitely not a super fan. I never even subscribed to O2L when he was on it. I simply picked this up cause I'm a nosy person and ultimately just wanted to...

as a "YouTuber".

When I came to this book, I was expecting a fresh and inspiring story about a guy who struggles with his life, but eventually figures it out.
Instead I got the same old drill: be yourself, embrace your scars, friends are not about quantity, but quality.
Oh my god, Connor, everybody knows that! Ever...

is it okay for a person to want to re-read from the beginning just as soon as they have finished it?

This is quite a beautiful book. Unlike other youtubers, Connor has created a memoir that’s so entirely him, clearly from his heart and soul, and it’s as well-written and engaging as it is inspiring and motivational. It’s very nicely put together and contains some incredible messages. His perspect...

I don't read a lot of memoirs but I needed to read something out of my huge book collection in my bedroom to keep me busy on a hot summers evening and A Work In Progress did just that. Connor is such an honest, down to earth person and with every chapter throughout the book, I could even hear his...
