From Amazon: In Dear Me, some of the world's best loved personalities have written just such a letter. Dear Me includes letters from three knights, a handful of Oscar winners, a bevy of Baftas, an intrepid explorer, a few teenage pop stars, and an Archbishop! The letters range from the compassionate to the shocking via hilarity and heartbreak, but they all have one thing in common: they offer a unique insight into the teenager who would grow up to be.
Dear Me is a unique book. It's funny and nostalgic, and is written by a fantastic compilation of the world's biggest personalities.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to relive your early years knowing what you know now? Or to be able to contact yourself in the past, and give some friendly advice? If you've thought about either of these, you need to read this book. Not only are the featured celebrities frank and painfully honest, they're also thoroughly entertaining in their letters, notes and lists. I laughed out loud at Jonathan Ross and Alan Carr's entries, and Betty Smith's talk of a World War immediately struck a chord with me.
These people have all done so much, and to read about their advice for themselves is both comforting and reassuring. They obviously had normal worries and fears at age sixteen, and for them to share this so openly is brilliant. They really do put your mind at ease, and they all show you that dreams aren't always as unattainable as we think.
Dear Me is a great book for any age, and is perfect for fans of humour and autobiographies. You get to laugh uncontrollably, learn about life and get a glimpse into the minds of some highly influential and entertaining people. £1 from the sale of each copy goes to Elton John's AIDS Foundation, and is just one of the many good reasons to buy this book.
