    Amusing old biographies.

    It is interesting to compare these "classic old bios with up-to-date, much more objective ones. Some are quite hilarious. Others are worthwhile as genuine sources.

    Recommend that you-Learn what you need to know

    Reading the 4th of 50, I would say that there are people whose names have been dropped in the past. Who were they I wondered? Here's a chance to get the details. It will help me form Jeopardy questions some day.

    What?

    Why do they even have biography books here? I looked up "classics" and this was sitting down at the bottom. How is this a classic?

    Okay

    The book in my opinon became boring and knew alot of the facts about the people I have heard of. It is boring to read about the people I do not like to learn about or have never heard of.
