  1. I agree, biographies are grand; I have a few in my shelf, yet to read: Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom, Gandhi’s Experiments with Truth, Karume’s Beyond expectations etc. It’s a great share. I recommend you look at Stephen King’s “On Writing”, excellent read!

  2. Those sound like super-interesting titles…An autobiography I have read and re-read is Sydney Poitier’s “The Measure of a Man.”…it is told with so much heart and sincerity..(But I guess this is typical of most autobiographies)

Tell me what you think...
