The Autobiography of Supertramp is the first greatest hits album by the English rock band Supertramp, released in 1986.

The compilation features the most popular songs from the albums Crime of the Century, Even in the Quietest Moments, Breakfast in America, ...Famous Last Words..., and Brother Where You Bound. The CD version and the 2001 remaster also include a song from Crisis? What Crisis?. The album Paris is completely unrepresented, despite its including the hit live version of "Dreamer".

The cover art shows a suit-wearing, faceless man seated in a train carriage reading a book with his own face on the cover. The view from the train window shows the platform with stylised versions of the cover art from three of Supertramp's albums.

The album was also released in the US as Classics, Volume 9, part of A&M's 25th Anniversary series (1987). That version of the album includes the extra tracks listed below as part of the 2001 re-release, with the exception of "School" and no single edits.

The album was re-released as The Very Best of Supertramp in 2001 in the US with digitally remastered sound and a bonus track "School" as the first track instead of "Goodbye Stranger" which follows afterwards. It also contains the album versions of the songs "Goodbye Stranger" and "Cannonball", whereas the original release uses the edited versions from the singles instead.
