Try Third Graders At War. It was written by a private who rode on a Bradley fighting vehicle in Desert Storm. Not your typical hollywood B.S.
I laughed a lot, and some of it was sad, but it tells it pretty bluntly, not for kids definitely.

FEARLESS: JOHN L MCCLELLAN, UNITED STATES SENATOR is by far the BEST biography I have ever read!! Facinating! Thrilling! Action-packed!! This senator's life is so riveting that dramatic non-fiction fades in comparison! Great read for all history lovers and biography lovers!

I prefer memoirs that are not about famous people...Some how, the suffering is much more real and the book more genuine..

Looking forward to reading the long awaited release of Lucinda Ruh's book "Frozen Teardrop". She is the most artistic figure skater ever to take the ice stage! The most accomplished and beautiful spinner (you must look up her videos on-line or on her website), you will be astonished when you see her spin. Simply an inspiration to all. What a great person. I plan on updating this review after I finish reading her book, but especially since I take notice that Lucinda wrote the book herself (not like others who hire a writer - no short-cuts for her), I am confident it will be an enjoyment to read. I am truly looking forward to reading her story.
The link to her newly released book is directly below;

Autobiography of a Yogi has to be the one that gave me the most to think about.

The moon is a balloon.

Bio of David Niven who admits He was a bit of a con man who was loved by the hollywood greats of the time.
David was a British special forces officer before drifiting to hollywood.
There is a great story in the book when He was at the house of Bogy a good friend of his.
A great read.

i justposted the same. Michael Holrod' bio of Lytton Strachey. His book opened up to me the world of the Bloomsburies;and I have read everything there is about thar group and that time. I especially enjoyed the six volumns of the Dairies of V Woolf. Also the Life of Duncan Grant, andthe Vanessa Bell biography.Also last but not least The biography of Leonard Woolf.

Another emotional rollercoaster is "Black-eyed Susan Among the Roses" by Fran Gervais. I don't know how anyone survives in a dysfunctional family!

"Dropped Names" by Frank Langella. While billed as a memoir, it's a collection of mini biographies of some famous people, as he knew them over the years. At different points amusing, touching, bitchy: A fun, well-written read and a welcome change of pace for me after slogging through the recent 900 page Spencer Tracy bio.
