I have read it at least 5 times.
It is a great Christian classic, which should be read by every Christian, as it is very simple and wonderful, and quite helpful in learning how to know Jesus much better.
However, her Autobiography is quite lengthy, just page after page of a life of great difficulty, both in regard to how her family and society treat her, and with regard to the fairly primitive medical environment of that day in being able to evaluate and treat smallpox and other illnesses that affected her and her family.
She had a life of great faith in God during and despite all of that.
But, I just skimmed the entire book, and that's really all it was.
I wasn't able to bring myself to read essentially the same thing over and over, throughout her childhood and the rest of her life.
If I only read a really good Christian book one time, or just skim it only because it isn't something that one is going to read over and over to glean more and more wonderful insights and learnings from it each time, about God, Jesus, and our Holy Spirit, and our loving and wonderful relationship with them, then I don't recommend it to other people to buy.
There are hundreds of Christian books that I've barely read once, or just skimmed, over the last 10 years.
So, to me, if people read a Christian book once, and rave about it, but apparently it's not so good that they ever read it cover to cover again, or several more times, then that's not what I'm looking for.
Versus books that I've read at least 5 times each over the last 10 years or so; or books that I've read at least 2-3 times each just upon initially coming across them, which I expect that I'll read at least 5 times or more, over the years, because they are so incredible.

-Heidler's Experiencing the Spirit
-Merlin Carother's Prison to Praise, Power in Praise, Answers to Praise, and Praise Works.
-books on fasting by Bill Bright, Mahesh Chavda and Kingley Fletcher.

-Hearing God, by Peter Lord.
-Watchman Nee's Spiritual Authority, Let Us Pray, and Release of the Spirit.
-Andrew Murray's Humility, Living a Prayerful Life, Ministry of Intercessory Prayer.
