Great Biographies

Very interesting facts that I didn't know! I have learned a lot and find biographies so intriguing since they're real stories.

Poorly written, poorly performed

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am not sure who would enjoy this book. At times I thought I was not listening to a real person read. The narrator sounded very stiff and mechanical much of the time. Each biography was oversimplified and ended up being a list of accomplishments with very few details to enrich the story. I realize this had to happen to an extent, with such short biographies, but I didn't feel like the author at all captured the personalities or the minds of these great men. There were also grammar errors in the writing. That is a real distraction and a big turn off to me.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

How could the performance have been better?

Different narrator, more depth in the biographies, even if they had to be longer.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Biography: 10 Biographies and Memoirs?

I wouldn't have cut any scenes, but would have rewritten many, to include at least one well-developed scene in each biography.

Any additional comments?

Save your money. Get a longer, proven biography on the person you really want to learn about.

History 101

I loved this book! Perfectly well written. Gave just enough insight to get your interest peeked. Pick your favorite success story and dive into learning more about them. My only suggestion is to add female success stories or write a book on women with high impact in our society.

10 Captivating Life Stories Condensed Without Losing Their Essense and Storylines

It’s amazing how Knight Writer has been able to summarize these 10 bigger than life personalities in a way that captivates you as if you have read their full biographies. A highly recommended masterpiece.

in spite of several bad reviews I bought the book anyway and I'm glad I did because I found it to be extremely inspiring and actually has prompted me to purchase the full biographies sauce the author did a great job and I hope you enjoy

Great book!!!

So informative and easy to listen to. I really like the fact that each biography is relatively short. You get plenty of information but it stays interesting.

Great place to start learning about these great

Great place to start learning about these great world class performers. I am amazed with the tenacity and ingenuity of all these great human beings. Their strength and capacity to overcome obstacles and to continue fighting for their believes is astonishing and inspiring. I recommend to read this book and pick two or three biographies to go more in depth and learn more about these world contributors.

Old school and new school history lessons

I enjoyed the variety of professions/backgrounds and time periods covered. While these individuals are viewed as wildly successful/powerful, knowing these icons had serious low points and challenges makes them seem more like real people. Having worked as an IT industry analyst, learning more about the personal lives of Musk and Bezos was interesting. Wish I had listened to this prior to writing my book as Knight Writer provided factoids on Bezos that I wasn't aware of. Adding a female bio/memoir or two would have been a nice touch (e.g. Hatshepsut, Joan of Arc).

Simple and Informative

The biographies were simple and good pictures of each person. I was able to have my son listen to them and stay interested enough to gain a nugget or two of knowledge. Worth the price and come to listen.
