Ranking The Books I Read In 2017 – Part Six

The book that I ranked the 3rd best book that I read in 2017 is the only autobiography that I read last year. I plan to read more of them this year because they provide an insight into how a person thinks and how they overcame challenges in their life. Also, they're just fascinating.  #3 [...]
