Summary:
These nuggets of wisdom are offered by an Academy Award nominated actor (James Woods), a popular comedian (Aasif Mandvi), and a world-famous novelist (Jodi Picoult) to their sixteen-year-old selves. No matter how accomplished and confident they seem today, at sixteen, they were like the rest of us, often unsure, frequently confused, and usually in need of a little reassurance. In this book, 75 celebrities, writers, musicians, athletes, and actors have written letters to their younger selves that give words of comfort, warning, humor, and advice. These letters present intimate, moving, and witty insights into some of the world's most intriguing and admired individuals. By turns funny, surprising, raw, and uplifting, this collection captures the universal conditions that are youth, life, and growing up.
