Ok, so I have a few weeks a month tops before my next semester of college starts. I want to take some of the extra time this will allot me to invest in reading some biographies of great men....the problem is I'm not sure where to start exactly. I'm looking for suggestions that will be inspirational. Any suggestions?

A must-read when it comes out, and with a new album too!

Life and Campaigns of Stonewall Jackson by Robert Lewis Dabney, and Patton: The Man Behind the Legend, 1885-1945 by Martin Blumenson.  Two of my favorite books about two of my biggest heroes.
