A biography, or simply bio, is a detailed description of a person's life. It involves more than just the basic facts like education, work, relationships, and death; it portrays a person's experience of these life events.
A good biography delves into what is really interesting about a person's life—noteworthy achievements, moments of adversity, and major turning points. The best biography can encapsulate a subject's entire life in an engaging way and provide enough personal details to give the reader an intimate look at their character.
An autobiography is a first-hand experience of the authors written by the authors, thus, making them interesting to the readers and enabling them to understand the “other,” unseen side of the authors. Autobiographies by women are mainly written by famous persons. They teach us different stories, the authors’ struggles in life, the emotions they went through, making the auto biographers more human.
