If you want to learn more about a famous person or just get into the detail of someone else’s life, then you can read a memoir or biography book (and autobiography books) from obooko.

A few examples of biography books available on obooko include Kittyhawk Pilot, a story of a Canadian fighter pilot and how he came to be the top of his game in his country. Follow his journey from child to fighter pilot ace in the Desert War.

For those against animal blood sports, the story of a campaigner in Ireland in the book Bad Hare Days, also available free on obooko, will probably grab your attention. This book will take through the ups and downs of trying to get a very popular yet barbaric sport banned.

People involved with journalistic media can often lead adventurous lives as they travel the world reporting on often dangerous events. Stalking the Average Man tells the story of a soundman working for major news organisations in far off and risky places.

Autobiography books give us the real account of what actually happened as the author is also the main character. We get a true window into someone else’s world. Take a look at Life in the Shadows of a Corporate Lawyer to get the story of the struggles of a lawyer with alcohol problems at time when getting corporate counsel positions was very difficult unless you were part of the old boy’s network.

Sometimes memoir books will give us a perspective of a world changing event from someone who was there. Singing Magic, free on obooko, tells the story of a Canadian girl who moved to South Africa during the ending of apartheid and brings us a fresh view of what real, normal people were going through at this time of change. We gain insight to what things were really like, unedited by news media.

In another autobiography, Out of the Box, we get to ride along with a psychiatrist from the childhood through to the end of his psychiatric career. Gaining detail of how early schooling started to shape the author’s future and how those lessons then stay with a man through his life.

There is no better way to satisfy your curiosity about other people than reading a book about them. Learn how they think and what drives them to do the things they do and use that knowledge to influence your own life – in some cases biography books can be like having your own mentor, laying out the values to follow. In other cases, it might be a lesson in what not to do.
