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.

  • Remarkable woman

    I don't read many biographies and memoirs at all,but this one, I knew I wanted to. Michelle Obama really is a remarkable and inspiring woman and this memoir feels fresh, honest and raw all at once. Her life in the White House is fascinating and she doesn't hide the bad bits or the moments when she feels confused, or tired etc. She is well aware of this privileged position however and is at pains to point out the highs as well but this book is honest for having a mix of ups and downs, an insight from a honest lady and one who has a unique insight into the most famous house in the world via such a powerful position. There's of course, lots of insight into life with the President, but this book feels as if you're talking to a friend, one of us, a woman who has been through so much herself and who gets people. I admire her all the more having read this.
