Stories I only tell my friends by Rob Lowe, Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes
Rob Lowe’s is excellent!
Dick Van Dyke “My Lucky Life In and Out of Show Business”
I don’t know if you’d be interested in autobiography also, but Meena Alexander’s Fault Lines is one of the best books I’ve ever read
The Glass Castle
Ava Gardner-Love is Nothing
Rooms of Heaven by Mary Allen and Brain on Fire
Both of these are memoirs but really good:
Educated by Tara Westover
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
This one is classified as historical fiction based on a real person. The author has a PhD and did a ton of research. It’s about Forugh Farrokhzad, who was a poet and filmmaker in the 1950’s in Iran. It was very good. Song of the Captive Bird by Jasmin Darznik.
A memoir – Five Presidents by Clint Hill.
Very good book
Robin Williams. Sally fields.
Tis Herself, Unsinkable
I’ve read some on Gandhi I did a report on him for school once
The Wright Brothers by David McCullum
Circling the Sun
The sally field memoir is incredible
My Days – Happy and Otherwise by Marion Ross.
Two books by Countess of Carnarvon – Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey and Lady Catherine, the Earl and the Real Downton Abbey.
Kindred Souls by Edna Gurewitsch about Eleanor Roosevelt and her doctor.
Thank you all
Yes I Can by Sammy davis, jr
Just finished “Betty Ford: First Lady, Women’s Advocate, Survivor, Trailblazer” and it was a great read!
Alan Jackson’s wife wrote one… @Kathy what was the name of that one?!?
Not sure it’s really a Biography though
Why wouldn’t it be a biography? Isn’t it a story about their life? Isn’t that the definition of auto-biography?
Son of Hamas by Mosab Yousef, and American Sniper by Chris Kyle
On the Move by Oliver Sacks. This is Just My Face by Gabourey Sidibe.
