Wish I Knew!!
I have great respect for some of the contributors to this book and was excited about my purchase. However, reading the letters from individuals such as Vanna White and Heather Mills was painful and pointless. Overall, great concept but barely touched the surface.

Unfortunately, I didn't find this book interesting or useful. I liked the idea of it, but when I read through the chapters I could see that only few of the letters were written in a fun, entertaining and educational way. First I wanted to give this book as a present to my friend, but it doesn't contain enough wisdom or experience to be really helpful. I remember buying a very similar book few years ago for my younger sister. I don't remember the name of it, but there were love notes from real people and it was so beautifully designed and edited that we read that book together few times, finding so many things that both of us could relate to. We still quote some letters from that book and it was a big help for my sister when she broke up with her boyfriend. When I finished "What I Know Now" I didn't feel any connection with the women who wrote the letters. Maybe I expected to learn more from them, considering how much they succeeded in life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
