“Her Alibi” by Mary L. Schmidt

People often do bad things. In some cases, the bad things they’ve done have long-lasting consequences for other people. Bad things done to children always have the most devastating consequences. “Her Alibi” is a revealing, heart-wrenching memoir written by a person with a truly brave heart. Mary L. Schmidt doesn’t spare the details of what has turned... Continue Reading →

“Will” by Will Smith

This is one of the best autobiographical books I have read so far. And I do love reading biographies and autobiographies. In the Book Reviews section, there are only some such books listed. I’ll be adding more. “Will” by Will Smith has the most important feature that makes an autobiography worth reading: sincerity. I’m not... Continue Reading →

“The Salt Path” by Raynor Winn

An amazing, inspiring book that motivates better than any highly acclaimed positive thinking coach."The Salt Path" is a story about the trip the author and her husband had made in order to escape homelessness, the loss of their cherished home they'd been investing all their time and efforts into for over 30 years, and the...

“A Woman Makes a Plan” by Maye Musk

“True Love” by Jennifer Lopez

This one is a lovely, easy read. But don't expect it to tell you J Lo's story. It does feature some, let's say, episodes of her life, but it lacks the depth, which, for me, is the main attraction in any autobiography."True Love" focuses on Jennifer Lopez's songs; she writes about what inspired each song,...

“Hillbilly Elegy” by J. D. Vance

An amazingly sincere and personal book. It tells a story of one - rather extended, though! - family, but also manages to illustrate the story of the whole region.For me, as for someone, who lives on the other side of the planet, the most fascinating in this book was finding a lot of similarities with...
