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.

From the excerpts I read (which is obvious many that gave the book a 1 rating did not but instead rated it purely based on their own hate and prejudice for the Obamas), it seems that she is allowing us into her more private life, sharing her personal pains as well as her public pains of being the first African American First Lady. I am very excited to read it and feel it will be a wonderful book.
Love love love
Inspiration, exceptional loving person
As our past American First Lady, she has been quite forgotten. Or so you think... This book is very inspiring and really brings out the empowerment of women of color. Looking for more people to become just as amazing as Michelle.
