The Story of My Life by Helen Keller -- I have read several bios on Miss Keller, but her autobiographical sketch is the best I have read. Her ability to accomplish so much despite her handicap (she became proficient in several languages) , her thoughts and profound conclusions as to how one becomes truly educated will give you something to think about.

An American classic rediscovered by each generation, The Story of My Life is Helen Keller’s account of her triumph over deafness and blindness. Popularized by the stage play and movie The Miracle Worker, Keller’s story has become a symbol of hope for people all over the world. This book–published when Keller was only twenty-two–portrays the wild child who is locked in the dark and silent prison of her own body.
