50 Biography Reading Challenge 2022

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

One of my favourite type of book to read is the biography/autobiography of great minds. Reading biographies gives the reader a glimpse of the subject/writers life, their journey, lessons learned, failures, successes, trails and tribulations among other insights. To be the best, it is great to study the greats, their work habit, ethics, philosophy, thought process and worldview.

biography is a detailed description of a person’s life. It involves more than just the basic facts like education, work, relationships, and death; it portrays a person’s experience of these life events. 1
