post some interesting biographies/autobiographies
this was pretty good
I learned that Lennon would tell people that the one thing in life he regretted was never getting the chance to have sex with his mom before she was killed by a truck when he was a teen
Any recommendations for a good biography on Ludwig Wittgenstein?
Prince Metternich's Autobiography
Kantorowicz's Kaiser Friedrich der Zweite
Chateaubriand's Mémoires d'Outre-Tombe
Does anyone read biographies of authors/philosophers/etcetera, before reading their works?
Also, do biographies of Kings/Politicians/Etcetera give a good bit of historical context before/while telling the "life story"?
