I’m ashamed to admit I have never read a biography, or an autobiography for that matter. It’s not that they don’t interest me. So often I will look up a person on Wikipedia, and war to know what they’ve done and their achievements, their life story. I’ve a watched many documentaries and movies on people and their lives. I love to find out what makes people special, learn from how people have achieved success and what they’ve done to get where they are.
But for some reason, I have never gotten around to reading a full book about anyone’s life. The closest I’ve come to it was “A million little pieces” by James Frey. But as I understand, the book is not completely non-fiction. The other one I read was “Winning” by Jack Welch which is more of a management book but depicts much of his life as well. Both were great reads and are highly recommended.
The funniest part is that I own actually own quite a few such books. But I’ve just never gotten around to reading them.
May be it’s time I dust off one those and start reading.
