Description

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States
 
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • NAACP IMAGE AWARD WINNER

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.

    This woman is dreadful. She has fans only because of her color. Wow what a talent? You were born black. I’m impressed! Married to one of the all time anti American presidents. Trump 2020MAGA 4LIFE

    I loved every page of Michelle Obama’s story. She writes in a way that provides honest insight into the path to becoming one of the finest first ladies our country has appreciated. Her words are inspirational and often raw- describing her life from childhood to former first lady without holding back. If you want the true story of the Obamas, it’s here. A must-read!

    This book is excellent. It’s well written and so down to earth. The First Lady shared her life story which is truly inspiring and gave us a glimpse behind the scenes of the Obama’s life in the White House.
