Have You Read A Good Biography Book Lately? 9 Reviews and a Challenge

I love reading biography books and so do many other lensmasters. Here’s 9 biography book review lenses we’ve received recently. (See the list below)

Have you got a good book to add to the list?

Visit our list of 99 of the newest and best-selling biographies and memoirs of 2013 HERE. If you see a book you’ve read and loved, create a new lens that shares your personal review. It’s easy to get started. Once at the lens, click the purple button under the book of your choice.

Don’t worry that someone else might have already reviewed the same book you read. Think about how many reviews you’ll find on any given product at Amazon.com. People usually want to read several different opinions before making their selection.

When your new lens is complete, come back here and share the link in the comments section.

"The Bully Pulpit," For Sure!

5. “The Bully Pulpit,” For Sure!

At 928 words, I’m still only about 30% through this outstanding book – you might have guessed that I am reading it on my Kindle. This is the only way to read really thick and ‘heavy’ books, in my view. I started ‘Team of Rival,’ sa…

There Is Proof of Heaven!

9. There Is Proof of Heaven!

When you have a life altering experience, I think it is only human to try and find out more information about how it has affected you. In 2010, I lost my husband to complications during neurosurgery for a DAVF (dural arteriovenous fistula) which, for ease…

    Thank you for inclusion in this list. I really liked what Chris Hadfield had to say about his journey to becoming an astronaut! He was willing to stop at any level and be happy doing what he was doing. How many of us could learn a lesson or two from his work ethic and journey!

    Sure appreciate finding my review of A House in the Sky here. I’ll never forget this book. It puts a whole new face on terrorism. The kidnapping serves as a series of wake up calls.
