The word autobiography come from the three Greek words autos, bios and graphein, meaning self life write. It is essentially an account of a life written by the one who lived it, or, more simply, a story (partially, wholly or almost all true) told by a person about themselves. Autobiographies are usually based almost entirely on the writer’s memory and so are a good account of events as personally experienced, including emotion, rather than just the bare facts which are found in a less personal biography.
