Biography portal
A Biography (from the Greek words bios meaning life, and graphein meaning write) is an account of an individual's life. While a biography is usually about a real person, it may also be about a fictional character. As opposed to a profile or curriculum vitae, a biography develops complex insight and highlights different textures of personality including intimate details of experiences. A biography is more than a list of facts like birth, education, work, relationships and death. It also delves into the emotions of experiencing such events. This biography portal is for wikipedia readers and contributors. We hope that this helps you find information of interest.

Isaac Asimov (c. January 2, 1920April 6, 1992, IPA: /ˈaɪzək ˈæzɪmˌɔf/) was a Russian-born American author and biochemist, a highly successful and exceptionally prolific writer best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books. Asimov's most famous work is the Foundation Series, which he later combined with two of his other series, the Galactic Empire Series and Robot series. He also wrote mysteries and fantasy, as well as a great amount of non-fiction. In fact, he wrote or edited over 500 volumes and an estimated 90,000 letters or postcard and has works in every major category of the Dewey Decimal System.

Asimov was a long-time member of Mensa, albeit reluctantly (he described them as "intellectually combative"). The asteroid 5020 Asimov is named in his honor.

See life (disambiguation) for other senses of 'life'.

Life or personal life or human existence is an individual human's personal, private career (including, but not the same as their employment career), and is a common notion in modern existence. There are service industries designed to help people improve their personal lives via counselling or life coaching.

In the past, before abundance and technology, a person's life consisted almost entirely of survival of both self and community; food needed to be harvested and shelters needed to be maintained. There was little privacy in a community, and a person was identified by their job.

In modern times, many people have even come to think of their personal lives as if they are separate from their work. This segmentation of "life areas" is evident in such phrases as "work life", "life at home" and "sex life", although much of an individuals personal career is heavily influenced by the beliefs or faith of the individual, both through the communication and interaction with others and through religion or "spiritual life". ...More
