Product 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.

An amazing insight to Michelle Obama's story

5

Being a fan of Michelle and Barack, I knew I would immediately like learning more about Michelle's story. What I didn't expect was for her to be so relatable - from the way she describes growing up, to trying to balance the demands of family and work life, and yearning for a more fulfilling and meaningful path to give back. This book is a must read and I will definitely be recommending it for years to come.

Michelle has written an honest reflective memoir that explores the life of a working mother. All women would relate to the dilemmas she faced, that of being a women establishing a career, being a wife and mother and maintaining her own self. It is a book hard to put down.

A great story of a delightful couple, who made their way to the top through hard work and study, to do all they could to help others. Their life was rarely easy but they were always approachable and where ever possible helpful.
