Best Autobiographies

There’s nothing like hearing the story of someone's life, told in their own words. The best autobiographies offer a compelling look inside the minds of some of the world's most fascinating characters.

Historical Figures

We can learn more about historical events from the viewpoints of the movers and shakers who were there at the time. Some of the best autobiographies are written by historical or political figures including Mahatma Gandhi and Malcolm X. Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl has become a classic example of a historical autobiography, giving the reader moving insight into what life was like in Nazi-occupied Europe. Ernest Hemingway's A Moveable Feast is another classic that paints a vivid portrait of a certain time period, in this case 1920s Paris.

Great Minds

Read bestselling memoirs from entrepreneurs and politicians alike. You’ll derive inspiration from titles like Sir Richard Branson's Finding my Virginity and insight from Hillary Rodham Clinton’s What Happened. Find out how successful business names like Lee Iacocca and Mary Kay Ash built their empires. Sylvia Plath, Maya Angelou, and Barack Obama are just a few authors who continue to rank up there on the bestseller lists for their words of wisdom, poetry and letters.

Breezy Biographies

Not all of the best autobiographies are serious. Some of the best books out there are funny and touching memoirs, or humorous and light-hearted biographies. Check out autobiographies written by comedians like Trevor Noah and Matt Lucas, or classic rock and roll memoirs by the likes of Keith Richards, Marianne Faithfull and Anthony Kiedis. Whether you're on the hunt for juicy gossip or laugh out loud moments, there's plenty to keep you entertained.
