Description

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States
 
In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.
 
In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.

    If you admired Michelle Obama before you read this book, you will hold her and her family in awe during and after reading. This autobiography made me outwardly laugh and cry throughout. It leaves you hopeful for a brighter future for our country and gives you clear vision as to why the Obamas are an adored family unit, how determined they were to improve our country while deeply enduring the griefs and tragedies along the way, and reinforced to me how severely this grace is missed while we painfully suffer through the current administration. Superbly written and honestly related covering a long and most admirable journey.

    It’s sad that people rate something one star that hasn’t even came out. You all are pathetic.
