Imagine what life would have been if you were in a famous personality's shoes and lived the life they lead day in and day out. Doesn't it sound fascinating? But, we all know that it's impossible. However, you can really come close to that if you happen to do one thing - buy a biography or an autobiography. Biographies and autobiographies give you the luxury of living the life of people you adore through words, and the feeling is unbeatable. You are left with pure bliss, and feel like a small part of that person's life already.
Difference between both
While biographies are personal accounts of people written by another author, autobiographies are first-hand experience of the person in question, as he is the author here. Some might like the idea of a biography better, as it has certain sense of judgement which the author has unintentionally brought in. One the other hand, some prefer autobiographies, because they feel their favourite person is almost having a conversation with them with the help of the book, giving the reader a more clear image of his life.
Famous biographies and autobiographies
