Description

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States

'A genuine page-turner, full of intimacies and reflections' Evening Standard

'A polished pearl of a memoir' New York Times

'A rich, entertaining and candid memoir. And overall Obama's a fun person to sit alongside as she tells you the story of her life . . . it is as beautifully written as any piece of fiction' i

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.

'Offers new insights into her upbringing on the south side of Chicago and the highs and lows of life with Barack Obama. . . a refreshing level of honesty about what politics really did to her. I have read Barack Obama's two books so far, and this is like inserting a missing piece of reality into the narrative of his dizzying journey' Guardian

'I found myself lifting my jaw from my chest at the end of every other chapter . . . this was not the Obama I thought I knew. She was more' Independent

'An inspirational memoir that also rings true' Daily Telegraph

    I loved Michelle Obama as FLOTUS and I was intrigued to see whether her memoir would live up to the hype. I can honestly say that it exceeded my expectations. She gives a great account of growing up and meeting Barack. What was most compelling to me was her courage in deciding that her Princeton/Harvard education path to a top tier law firm didn’t make her happy and the steps she took to find her life’s purpose. A beautiful reminder of the Obama Whitehouse and it’s message of optimism, forward thinking & hope.

    Such an interesting woman putting her life out there for people to learn of the intricacies of the American campaign system and life as a political wife. Her honesty and love of life should be shared by all. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone had a Michelle in their life!

    Great book. Loved its honesty and loved the easy way it was written. I found it compelling and was often still thinking about it as I went to sleep (having just had trouble putting it down to go to sleep!). I’m so impressed by this woman and her husband. I know (hope)they will remain a powerful influence in the world. From Australia
