A biography is a story about a person's life but it is not written by the person.
An autobiography is a story about someone's life but written by THAT person.
If you look up "biography" you see:
"An account of a person's life written, composed, or produced by another"
Whereas for "autobiography" you'll see:
"The biography of a person written by that person".
So the difference is all about who wrote it.
There is a clear distinction between a biography and an autobiography. A biography is an account of the life of a person written, produced or composed by another. It is a piece of non-fictional literature. It is reported that the first instances of biographical writings were inscriptions and funeral speeches. While writing a biography, the writer seeks to find as much information about the concerned person. He does an extensive homework, interviews the person on whom the biography is being written, does a background study of the person-basically everything that can cover the person in entirety. A biography may either be impartial or biased in terms of content.
A biography of one self, written by that person only is called autobiography. The first forms of autobiographies began to surface in the 16th century. Usually things which a person writes while in solitary confinement in diaries, letters, journals etc without the intention of publishing are later published in the form of an autobiography. Usually an autobiography of an influential person or celebrity commands a higher value than a biography because in case of the former, the words are directly from the horse's mouth.
A biography is written by another person about someone else and a autobiography is what a person writes about them self.
