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 US 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.

Génial, passionnant, tellement éclairant

Je me souviens de mon plaisir à savoir qu'un homme noir avait enfin atteint les hauts sphères du pouvoir, je me souviens d'avoir apprécié le caractère exceptionnel de son épouse. C'était un vrai bonheur de la découvrir dans cette autobiographie, lue par elle qui plus est.

Le couple Obama est exceptionnel, nul doute après la lecture de ce livre audio. Je n'ose imaginer leur déception à l'arrivée putride de l'autre, l'erreur de parcours. Elle l'évoque à la fin, ça donne la nausée.

Le livre raconte son parcours à elle évidemment, petite fille de milieu très modeste, avec un père handicapé très courageux, sa rencontre avec Obama, leur vie de couple, l'éducation de leurs enfants.

J'adore son franc parler, même quand elle évoque les sacrifices consentis pour la carrière de son mari, les doutes, les frustrations. Elle évoque son engagement en tant que première dame.

Sa lecture est touchante, dynamique.

Non mais quelle bonne femme ! Un vrai modèle !

J'adore, je recommande. En plus on découvre les petits secrets d'arrière cuisine de la maison blanche, c'est très divertissant.

Personal, intimate and powerful

I approched this book with little expectations and finished it feeling touched, moved and maybe, just maybe, with a bit of hope for the world. Here is a person that had a completely different life story than mine, was the first lady of a foreign country and lives a life I cannot even imagine. However, through her words, I managed to identify with her emotions, thoughts and even fears. This book is about personal stories, it's about politics, about the history of the United States, but above all is about strong and real women everywhere.

A great memoir

A great memoir by a lady, a woman with a humble upbringing that managed, through education and great role models, to achieve a great deal of things. Very good.

Whew. What a story.

From the South Side of Chicago to the WHITE HOUSE! Whew. Let that sink in. As a black woman, this book moved me differently than any other book I’ve read in recent memory. Letting me know it’s ok that I’m still “Becoming” and that I have the right to enter any space I want to! I loved Mrs. Obama before, but I was introduced to Michelle Robinson Obama and I love her even more. She read her own story like she was talking directly to me and I loved that. It was like sitting down at your Auntie House and she was telling you all tea over a good glass of wine! I’m so thankful for her sharing her story and being so open and honest about it all. What a story!

Very well written and read.

This book opened my eyes to a lot of things. I’ve always had mad respect for the Obamas but this heightened that respect. Michelle Obama is very open and transparent in this book.

I was totally disappointed. The subject
Material was too concentrated on her childhood.

Also felt it was incredibly negatively.

Very Slow

I have to admit that I'm disappointed with this book. It's incredibly slow so I've been listening to it in double time. I've been trudging through it looking for the pearls of wisdom or deep insight, but it's mostly filled with the minutia of the day to day tasks. I've recently watched the documentary "fed up" and the ineffectiveness of the Move campaign. I was hoping to get Michelle's viewpoint on the challenges and why she gave up on her commitment to real change but she simply glossed over this topic only offering a high level synopsis.

Wow What a Disappointment

I was and am a huge fan of President & Mrs. Obama and have always found them to be insightful inspirational people, so admittedly I came in with high expectations.

Boy, was this a massive disappointment. I'm not sure exactly what it was, maybe it was the poor my martyrdom she dragged on about. Wow, I sure thought she had a lot more good things in her life than bad stuff but those seem to be in passing. I'm a thrifty person so hearing her whining about taking a huge pay cut i 1989 from $120,000 to $60,000 to do something she wanted to do left me aghast. I fully appreciate the % cut, but she had a husband also making a low for lawyer but still a lawyer salary. I appreciate she took a big hit but she was still making a bunch of money compared to most Americans. Double that for her husband and she's in the very top of salary structure back then. Very off putting. There were all sorts of those stories. I thought he was a great transitional president and she was a great partner. I jsut don't feel sorry for her and that seemed like her #1 thesis in the story. Yuck.
One good thing about the story--while it started out awful it did move up to mediocre at the end.

Gotta love Michelle, but this is boring.

I listend to the whole book and was drawn in but after I finished it I realized there was no amusing or funny or playful passage in the whole book. It felt like she was just telling day to day experiences but not really sharing any excitement or wider view of life with Barack or in the White House. She is such an excellent, inspirational speaker, I don't know why this was such a mundane story and narration.

Didn't know what I was getting into

I highly recommend the audio format as it is read by the author.

I spent most of their eight years in office rebelling against anything the Obama's sought to accomplish. Sadly, I let the political pundits and partisan politics have too much influence on my thinking.

I was excited that we had our first African-American president, but I couldn't fully embrace all of the policies, and therefore was unwilling to embrace this presidency.

My last several years I have invested time and effort to connect with others. The greater the perceived difference, the better the conversation. I always learn more, appreciate others in new ways, and my life is richer as a result.

For those who are fans of the Obama's, this will be an enjoyable read to encounter the experience from Michelle's perspective.

It is more important for those like me to read. I am amazed at how the political machine works to divide and demonize people. It is difficult to witness and does nothing to build up our country.

I see how I have been complicit due to my silence or unwillingness to question what is being broadcast across the various media platforms.

Politics and religion should be talked about at the dinner table, because that is where we meet the humanity of others, and it's harder to hate those up close.

Too much information!

I was so looking forward to loving this book. If it was edited to half it's length it would have been much better. She is a very detailed person who remembers everything that has happened to her in her life, including all the stuff nobody is interested in when she was a child. Wow, a long childhood. I wish the First Lady would have eliminated some of these bits of minutia. She lets her listeners in on all kinds of personal information which is left to be remembered in the privacy of one's own mind. If you are into details this may be the perfect book for you. To me is was tedious, and a disappointment, as I had to listen to a lot of material which was not of interest to me, to get to the good parts.

Amaaaaaazing

I loved her before, for her 'dignity' and poise but it's only now that I really understand why. A beautifully written rendering of an incredible life so far, and long may it last, with aptly chosen words for every occasion. Hearing her soothing, calming, educated voice was a pleasure over the past month on my way to various destinations. Already my book of the year.

Mediocre at best

I think most of the people are making a fuss about this book and are biased about how they feel about it, because it is Michelle Obama who has written it, not because it is actually as great a book or even as great a story as they say it is. Or maybe some of the people who are overjoyed by it are not really used to great literature.
I found both the story and the presentation of it unremarkable and mediocre at best. And the performance by Michelle is also a rather failed attempt at bringing feelings into her voice, but of course, she is not a narrator and although she isn’t skillful at it at all, I usually like books being read by their authors.
I have the feeling that she stood in the shadow of her husband and her writing this book seems to me to be an attempt to use his fame and sell her story, which I cannot help but find more or less unimpressive. What did she really do after all? Become the wife of the first black president of the United States and of a great man? Her life is interesting in its own scales, but on a global level, let’s face it, not many people would have known her or bought her book, if it wasn’t because of her husband.

Not only is Michelle Obama a woman to look up to, she also wrote a very moving book, which is easy to get into. I almost felt like I was there in her parents’ apartment on Euclid Ave and in the White House....
This story clearly shows what education can do to someone’s life and how important it is to support children in getting the best education possible.

Michelle Obama liest ihre Geschichte und Gedanken mit der logischen Authentizität. Ihre Stimme, Ideale und Erwartungen sind die einer Freundin...
