Moe Howard and the Three Stooges is the autobiography of Moe Howard of The Three Stooges. He spent his final days writing his autobiography, which he tentatively titled I Stooged to Conquer.[1] However, Howard fell ill with lung cancer in May 1975 and died before it could be completed (although he appears in the 2012 film, played by Chris Diamantopoulos, Skyler Gisondo plays Moe as a child).

Howard's daughter Joan Howard Maurer completed her father's book and it was eventually published in 1977. While some of the dates and incidents are portrayed differently in other books about the Stooges and their history, this offers insight on the world from Moe Howard's point of view.

The autobiography was re-released on July 2013 by Chicago Review Press. It got retitled to "I Stooged to Conquer". The updated title was the intended, original title of the book, but changed by the publisher shortly before it went to press 35 years ago.
