    Famous People

    I like to know what events shaped people who became famous.  Alot of time these people are gifted in certain areas but still they seem to be head and shoulders above the crowd.  I think we can learn alot from some of these people, at least the good ones.

    Leading With His Chin

    One of the autobiographies that I enjoy reading is Leading With My Chin by comedian/late night host Jay Leno, it's extremely funny and touching and the stories are very humorous in their own unique ways. I know Leno himself has been getting a lot of hate due to the whole Conan...

    Mariette Hartley's Book

    I just finished Mariette Hartley's autobiography, "Breaking the Silence," which speaks of her family's struggles with suicide, depression, and affection.  Very interesting!  I recommend it!

    The New One

    I really want to read Julie Andrew's new biography. I love her so much, but anyway a great biography is John Adam's biography. My dad made me read it but I ended up enjoying it greatly.
