Its only been out for a few days but Mark Twain's new autobiography is already on the New York Times best seller's list .
'Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1' highlights his early days in Hannibal.
What makes this book different is that its Twain's dictations, thoughts and views.
Twain said that he wanted his autobiography published 100 years after his death so as not to offend anyone.
"He took the gloves off when he wrote this and expressed himself fully and honestly, that what he really wanted to do. But he felt he couldn't really be honest until he was in the grave 100 years and his family would not have to defend him," Cindy Lovell, the Executive Director for Mark Twain Museum.
This book is just volume one in a series of 3 volumes to be released several years from now.
