IF I’D KNOWN THENWomen in Their 20s and 30s Write Letters To Their Younger Selves
If you could send a letter back in time to your younger self, what would it say? Following in the tradition of the bestselling compendium What I Know Now™ comes a new collection that will speak directly to young women. Editor Ellyn Spragins asked women under forty to write letters to the girls they once were, filled with the advice and wisdom they wish they’d possessed when they were younger.
WHAT I KNOW NOW™Letters To My Younger Self®
“We don’t always have the wisdom we require at the time we need it. We struggle. We worry. Often, only later do our choices make sense to us,” says Ellyn Spragins in WHAT I KNOW NOW: Letters To My Younger Self® (Broadway Books; April 2006) The book contains letters from forty-one famous women reflecting on significant moments in their lives and sharing the advice they wish they had known at that time.
"These women's words will resonate with what you already know to be true: There are as many ways to be successful as there are women to dream them up. Read on and get inspired."
