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.

No Ordinary Memoir

I was against reading this, and listening to it as it was so main stream and everyone was only talking about it becuase of her time in the White House. However being an author myself I wanted to give it my honest time; and boy oh boy, If only Michelle took the time to read her reviews. But this book is powerful, emotional, and true. There is no sugar coating the truth about it, she completes the work amazingly. A true and astonishing woman.

Excellent- embodies the theme of the book

Honestly- I don’t think I would have liked this book as much had I read it in the traditional way but listening to Michelle narrate her story and this book was the best!

I loved it! She brought me to tears, I laughed- honestly it was like listening to a friend tell you a really good story. I bought it on a whim and so happy I did! I highly highly recommend this book especially in audio format!
