An autobiography is an account of a person’s life written by that same person. The author of the autobiography narrates his or her life experiences and the journey travelled. Autobiographies are mostly about famous personalities and not about the general people. People tend to take more interest in the life of famous people and that is one of the reasons behind the concept of autobiographies.

Not all autobiographies are good, interesting and enjoyable, only a few of them are able to stand out for the real. Some great authors give us a ride in their extraordinary life.
