Item description for You Are Next In Line: Everyone's Guide for Writing Your Autobiography (Capital Career & Personal Development) by Armiger Jagoe...
In writing Southern Boy, the story of his life, author Armiger Jagoe learned a great deal about writing autobiographies, but he also realized how little he knew of his own familys history. His mantra is A life worth living is a life worth recording. So, after a successful career in business, he has begun teaching seniors how to tell their own story. From these classes taught at libraries and senior centers, he has developed the You Are Next in Line Project from which this book has grown. Now in You Are Next in Line, Jagoe offers the twelve components of a successful autobiography, selecting examples from fifty-six famed autobiographies, ranging from Margery Kempe to Katharine Graham; and explains not only how to record your life story but also reasons why you should, such as the following: * By writing your autobiography, you are acknowledging that you are uniqueone of a kind. * In studying a rerun of your life, youll discover forgotten facts about yourself. * You'll feel rejuvenated as you rethink both joyful and tragic events, and invariably you will find something new.

A memorial testament to their own life and times and memories. Jan 6, 2008
Writing one's life story in the form of a personal memoir or an autobiography can have immense value for benefiting posterity. It can also help the author appreciate or otherwise come to terms with their own life experiences, their choices, their successes and failures, their aspirations and achievements, the people they've known, the places they seen, the events they've experienced. Written especially for those who have no special skills or experience in writing, "You Are Next In Line: Everyone's Guide For Writing Your Autobiography" by Armiger Jagoe is the perfect 'how to' instruction guide and manual for recording a life story that will prove worthwhile reading for friends, for family, and for the generations to come. There is also a genealogical value to writing an autobiography with pertinent dates, descriptive relationships, and the ephemeral minutia that will prove of immense interest to future readers and scholars about us in terms of how we lived, and the kind of world we lived in. "Your Are Next In Line" is especially recommended to the attention of anyone who has ever contemplated leaving a written record of their life story as a memorial testament to their own life and times and memories.
