Summary:

Mark Twain's daughter, Susy, wrote: "Papa...doesn't like to go to church at all, why I never understood, until just now, he told us the other day that he couldn't bear to hear any one talk but himself, but that he could listen to himself talk for hours without getting tired, of course he said this in joke, but I've no dought [sic] it was founded on truth."-from the book
Here is one of the great autobiographies of the English language: exuberant, wonderfully contemporary in spirit, written by a man twice as large as life, who-he said so himself-had no trouble remembering everything that had ever happened to him, and a lot of things besides.
Nothing ever happened to Mark Twain in a small way. His adventures were invariably fraught with drama. Success and failure for him were equally spectacular. And so he roared down the years, feuding with publishers, being a sucker for inventors, always learning wisdom at the point of ruin and always relishing the absurd spectacle of humankind, whom he regarded with a blend of vitriol and affection.

    Takes a while to get rolling but had countless laughs and a great picture of life in 19th century America. Many heartbreaks and it was those it seems that ended his life. His style and use of the language is just wonderful.
