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.

5.0 The real Michelle Obama.
I started this a while ago, but then I seemed to just grind to a halt. I didn't stop for any particular reason; the book group I was reading it for had passed and I suppose other things got in its way. So, now I've picked it up and completed it - I didn't want it to go the same way as her husband's ...

4.5 I Got So Much More Than I Expected From this
After listening to Ms Obama's words I had the audio version, I found myself questioning everything I thought I knew as facts, and looking at my own thoughts about the person. She turned out to be someone amazing, with grit, attitude, intelligence, a mother with a drive to make things better for thos...

5.0 A powerful look at an amazing life
To be honest, I've never been a fan of memoirs. While I have read a few by celebrities that I've enjoyed because of their humor, too many of the ones by public figures are either preachy self-justifications or selective journeys through careers in which achievements are exaggerated and blame for fai...

5.0 Becoming
I considered all these people, current and former staff, to be family. And I was so proud of what we’d done. For every video that swiftly saturated the internet—I’d mom-danced with Jimmy Fallon, Nerf-dunked on LeBron James, and college-rapped with Jay Pharoah—we’d focused ourselves on doing more tha...
