Ask the Readers: What Are Your Favorite Biographies?

In my previous post, I wrote about building a passion for lifelong learning. Having a passion for lifelong learning is essential to help you reach your full potential. Now, I’d like to cover what I believe is a good way to learn about life: reading biographies.

Why is reading biographies useful? There are at least four reasons:

  1. It can teach you about pitfalls to avoid (so that you don’t need to learn things the hard way).
  2. It can teach you about how to respond to failure.
  3. It can open your mind about what is possible.
  4. It can teach you about great principles to live by.

Of course, there are many biographies to choose from, so I’d like to ask you:

What are your favorite biographies and why?

Please leave your answer in the comments so that everyone can read it. Thanks!
