Five life stories (aside from Hannibal’s) to comfort, inspire or guide you

The folks at Shepherd, a book-discovery site, asked for my recommendations in a genre similar to that of Hannibal and Me.

They let me choose only five, and I picked:

  • Endurance, by Alfred Lansing
  • Caesar: Life of a Colossus, by Adrian Goldsworthy
  • The Boys in the Boat, by Daniel James Brown
  • Einstein: His Life and Universe, by Walter Isaacson
  • Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson and the Opening of the American West, by Stephen Ambrose

Find out why I chose these five, and not the hundreds of others on my shelves over at Shepherd.
