As I wrote in How to Learn About Life, reading biographies is a good way to learn about life. I’m not going to repeat the article here, but a few benefits of reading biographies are:
- It teaches you about pitfalls to avoid.
- It teaches you about how to respond to failure.
- It opens your mind to what is possible.
- It teaches you about the great principles to live by.
In short, it allows you to study the lives of exceptional people so that you can apply what you learn to your own life.
In the comment section of the article, there are some recommendations for good biographies to read. But I believe that there are many more out there.
So I’d like to ask you:
What biographies do you recommend and why?
Please leave your answer in the comment section of this article so that everyone can read it.
