Explore Biography & Autobiography
Sometimes you just have to walk a mile in someone else's shoes. Doing a research project on the great leaders of history? Feeding your obsession with sports legends? Perhaps even seeking inspiration from the lives of famous people in business? Their inside stories give us a window onto how they lived, the decisions they made, the pressures and influences of their place and time. Here is where writers take on the impossible task: to contain a life's story between the front and back covers. Find everything you wanted to know (maybe even more) about the famous and infamous alike.
