Is this nonfiction or an autobiography?
Is a book about some person's teenage years spent climbing mountains nonfiction or an autobiography? It doesn't tell about any part of his life. It just tells about him training and climbing mountains.
It is written by him AND someone else.
What it is is this guy interviewed the climber and he then wrote the book with the climber from notes and the climbers memory.

An autobiography IS nonfiction, but nonfiction isn't necessarily an autobiography. Thus meaning that if the story is autobiography, it is nonfiction, but it can be nonfiction and not be an autobiography. The story is an autobiography if the person is writing about his/her life or events that have happened in their life. If they are not writing about their self, yet the story is true, it is just nonfiction.

it would be be mostly biographical, but also nonfiction b/c it is about a real story and was not fictionalized
an autobiography is nonfiction but nonfiction works are not necessarily autobiographies

well, is he writing it or is someone else? If he's writing it, it's a memoir (of his time spent training/climbing mountains). if someone else is, it's probably classified as nonfiction.
(if you're still not sure, go to amazon.com and look it up, and see how they classify it.)
i hope that helps!

Then it would be mainly nonfiction and semi-autobiographical.
