I think it's all about SHARING. Reading other people's stories just gives you strength. Sure, there are plenty of vanity stories wrapped up in memoirs, but the best and most inspirational stories are honest-down-to-earth outpourings.
I've recently completed a memoir and have published several personal essays. Knowing people are laughing or crying as a result of my writing makes my happy times better, and my sad times more bearable because I know I can share.
I'm currently seeking agent representation for my multimedia memoir. Dozens of documentary style videos will be available to my readers. I call it a pet and teacher memoir wrapped up into a travel adventure. Please visit http://thechinproject.wordpress.com for a look.
In regards to Mr. Sampsells book. While most teenagers had a couple of porn mags under the mattress, he had a suitcase full of them. If that isn't inspirational then I don't know what is.
