Biographies are the life stories of famous or interesting people, as written by authors and historians. They differ from an autobiography, which consists of writings about personal experiences and viewpoints of the person's life.
I've always been interested in reading biographies about how famous people became successful or what influenced their lives. You can learn much from studying the life stories of famous people. You can examine personality traits, outside influences, events in their lives and work techniques and then apply them to your own life. Studying the lives of the successful can give you insight on the processes used, as well as to inspire you to also become a champion.
The purpose of these lessons is to help you gain understanding the basics of Biographies, such that you will become a champion in the subject.
