    Queen Elizabeth II. I reckon she would have had some interesting conversations with some interesting people over the years.

    Hitler's autobiography, postumously written by steven king or whatever. I couldn't read it knowing he was still alive. What was going through that man's head?

    That will never happen. However her diaries will be automatically available after a specific period of time that is customarily well after anybody she knew is dead. I think it's about 75 yrs following her death though I am not certain about the specific time span at which they will be released. In any event, it's likely we'll all be dead and can't read what she was really thinking about The Duke & Duchess of Windsor, Churchill, Gandhi, Kennedy, Gorbachev, Reagan, Thatcher, Blair, Yeltsin, the Prince of Wales, Camilla or Diana her wayward daughter-in-law. She does write something relevant in her dairy every evening before retiring. She was trained to do so from a very young age. Once someone asked her about that and asked if she wrote her diary entries in her own hand. She replied very dryly "Yes... Well I don't know any other way". She has a very dry clean wit of which few people are aware. So her diaries should make for good reading.

    You may recall in the early 1980's there was a huge international hoax in which a German magazine claimed to have bought the rights to a newly discovered diary of Adolf Hitler. It was featured in Time Magazine and in all the newspapers and the TV evening news for weeks. Then it was established the diaries were fake. The mess he caused is certainly indicative of what a dangerous madman he was. Not a nice fellow.

    actually i would LOVE to read Hitlers autobiography.

    He was a VERY smart man and it would be very interesting. Or event Stalin's autobiography.

    They were both very smart people!!

    haha I came here to say one thing and didn't even think about all these amazing and inspring people I would love to read. I would say Kennedy and Hitler(not that he was amazing and inspiring) would be really interesting. I was going to say Lady Gaga, and I still would love to read it

    oh dannyboy GW Bush would be good. I wonder what he would have to say about himself.

    Well, mine of course.icon_lol.gif I have stories to tell that keep people wanting more but my best friend has been instructed to burn my journals when I die.

    A nun, who partially raised me, would be a good read. She joined the sisterhood to avoid being forced to marry thus enabling her to have a career.

    I asked her if she ever thought about leaving the sisterhood and she said only twice:

    -At 19 she had a sordid affair with a married man and father. She fell madly in love but asked to be transferred to another city.

    -She was transferred to another city again in 1978 and she said leaving my sister and I behind was the hardest thing to do. She said while boarding the plane she turned on her heels thinking to stay but then turned around again and boarded.

    Recently she confessed to me that she does not believe in a life ever after. Once you die..that's it! Six feet under, thank you for the good time.

    Just a small sample of this intriguing woman.

    I'd want to read Mary Magdalene' autobiography. Her perspective on those days would be a very interesting contrast to what has become of Christianity.

    Say what??? Actually, in a way I've been writing my autobiography for years, posting it installment-style on the Internet.

    I'm motivated not from a mistaken belief that someone as obscure as me holds any general interest to others, but I find that personal anecdotes are my best way to illustrate points I'm trying to make during online discussions. And I have had a varied life, if not a famous one, anything but dull.

    BTW, I'll be in the lobby after this discussion for an autograph session. Not sure what I'll be signing, but your intimate items of personal attire wouldn't be unwelcome. The line forms to the right... icon_wink.gif

    Stephen King? Instead of Bavaria, he lives in Maine?
    If you want a good biography that is basically the same as what you're describing (except for the Stephen King bit) read Inside The Third Reich by Albert Speer... who was in Hitler's inner circle, and was considered by many to be Hitler's only friend. GREAT book.

    I'd probably want to read Queen Victoria's autobiography. Or Sir William Lyon Mackenzie King... just to see if he was really nailing his manservant, and that he was Canada's only Prime Minister to ever declare war on another country.

    Autobiographies of Supermodels... all of them
    think about it... they have it all, yet most end up committing suicide.
