Autobiography
An AUTOBIOGRAPHY (from the Greek , αὐτός-autos self + βίος-bios life + γράφειν-graphein to write) is a self-written account of the life of a person. The word "autobiography" was first used deprecatingly by William Taylor in 1797 in the English periodical The Monthly Review , when he suggested the word as a hybrid, but condemned it as "pedantic".
