A biography is the story of a persons life that is written by another person.

If I wrote the story of Leos life, it would be called a biography.


An autobiography is the story of a persons life that is written by the person himself.

If Leo writes the story of his own life, it is called an autobiography.


Biography = Someone else writes the story of Leos life.

Autobiography = Leo writes the story of his own life.


Here are some things you will learn when you read a biography.

Events that happened in the persons life.

What the person did that made him famous.
