One who wants to get joy of book reading especially in very less time can go for it. About The Book Gibbons autobiography was published in 1796, two years after his death, by his friend, Lord Sheffield, under the title Miscellaneous Works of Edward Gibbon, Esq., with Memoirs of His Life and Writings, Composed by Himself. After completing his history, says Mr. Birrell, Gibbon had but one thing left him to do in order to discharge his duty to the universe.

He had written a magnificent history of the Roman Empire- it remained to write the history of the historian. It is a most studied performance, and may be boldly pronounced perfect. It is our best, and best known, autobiography. That the writing was studied is shown by the fact that six different sketches were left in Gibbons handwriting, and from all these the published memoirs were selected and put together. The memoir was briefly completed by Lord Sheffield.

Bagehot described the book as the most imposing of domestic narratives. Truly, it was impossible for Gibbon to doff his dignity, but through the cadenced formality of his style the reader can detect a happy candour, careful sincerity, complacent temper, and a loyalty to friendship that recommend the man as truly as the writer.
