    No. An autobiography, by definition, means a biography about oneself. If you wrote someone else's biography (a book about that particular someone else), then it's simply called a biography. If you are asking can you take someone else's autobiography, slap your name on it and call it an autobiography ( biography of yourself), then no. That's plagiarism and fraud.

    No... autobiography means the story of a person's life written by himself.

    wat u wanna write can be simply called as a biography....

    Nope. Auto is a Latin root word meaning self I.e. Autopilot. So if you wrote a story about someone else it would be a biography.
