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 United States 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 listeners 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.

Glad I persevered

I was not taken by the first few chapters of this book but decided to persevere given all the very positive reviews. I'm glad I did. For me the story really turned around from when she meets Barack. Her relationship with him and the concessions she makes whilst maintaining her girl power and indépendance were enlightening. Sometimes moving, I didn't want to switch it off. Her voice is gentle and reassuring (almost dull if you're not in the mood!!) - certainly not the hyper enthusiastic American style we're now used to.
Over all this book definitely reinforces the awesome image of this amazing couple and their suitability for that big White House and all that goes with it. I wish we could have him back! Suitably scathing of the new prez too! Read it! Don't let yourself get bored with the first part... although it is nice to know Michelle's background, it gets better later on.

Loved the power of authenticity

I am recommending this book to my friends, family and young women in my life. As a Black, female South African who grew up working class, there were so many things I could relate to in Michelle’s story. This helped me process my own thoughts and feelings about my personal journey.
Thank you Michelle for your authenticity and openness.

Worth reading again and again.

Becoming stirred up so many emotions, I found myself laughing and sometimes openingly sobbing as I listened to your story of how you and your family came , saw and conquered.

I'm so proud of you Michelle Obama,
YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH!!!!

The woman that is Michelle Obama

What is so inspiring about her story is that it starts of so similar almost like we were living the same life as children. Her journey was unique but still so are all our journeys, we just need to be reminded to always be authentic.

The Obama’s grace and struggles it have paved the way for many others. This book give a good insight of the profess and emotions that went on during that journey to and and while in the White House

This book has also thought me about what kind of parent I would like to be for my children. An insight of great parenting not just by the Obamas but also by the Robinsons.

Read this book.

Thank you Michelle for your brilliant Masterpiece

I listened while laughing, crying and learning so much about America, the black history, the politics and even more about excellence, thriving, deciding and BECOMING! I‘m deeply touched and moved by your book, your life and YOU! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story with me, with the world. Lots of love from Switzerland, Ronja

If you only read one book in your life, let it be this.

Michelle is a graceful, humble, passionate and thoroughly kind human and I wish this book was mandatory at schools everywhere. Give people time off work to read it. Pass it out on the street. Be more like her! Love! Care!

Cecilia

Drei Tage lang habe ich Michelle Obama zugehört und ich bin begeistert, von der Art und Weise wie sie uns Ihre Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen schildert, von den intimen Einblicken in das Leben im Weißen Haus, ihren Betrachtungen, ihre offene Art von ihrer Familie zu erzählen und ihre wunderbare Stimme. Danke, First Lady❤️
