Responses to "One Biography"

Here is the question that was posted a few days ago: 

"If you could have only one single-volume biography to read for insight and inspiration over the next five years, which one would it be?"

Here are the responses to date:
  • Kurt Harden: "My Early Life" by Winston Churchill
  • Matt R: "A Guide for the Perplexed" by Werner Herzog
  • Wally Bock: "The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin"
  • Daniel Richwine: "The Confessions of Saint Augustine" by Saint Augustine
  • Steve Layman: "Emerson: The Mind on Fire" by Robert D. Richardson, Jr.
Excellent choices all. [The Herzog and Emerson choices were big surprises.]

My own selection would be "John Adams" by David McCullough.
