  • Six Memoirs Everyone Should Read Plus six honorable mentions.
  • My Lobotomy by Howard Dully An incredible memoir about a typical boy whose parents forced a lobotomy on him in an effort to calm him down, My Lobotomy is one man’s reflection on his life, the effects of the procedure, and ultimately coming to terms with it and finding success.
  • Unbearable Lightness by Portia De Rossi De Rossi, of Ally McBeal fame, writes about her battle with anorexia, how it affected her career, and how she conquered her biggest fears.
  • Etched in Sand by Regina Calcaterra One woman’s journey through an unspeakable childhood, foster care, and ultimate success, Etched in Sand is a book to be devoured in one sitting.
  • Living History by Hillary Clinton With a new memoir due out this summer, it’s the perfect time to brush on the life of Hillary Clinton. Engaging and brilliant, this is a must-read for anyone interested in the *potential* 2016 presidential candidate.
  • Moonwalking With Einstein by Joshua Foer Wishing he had a better memory, journalist Foer sets out to learn all he can about the art of remembering. Little did he know that he would become the U.S. Memory Champion and that it would change his life.
  • Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua Controversial and wildly popular, this book gives great insight into the life of a family run by a tiger mother. It’s worth the read for the perspective, alone.
