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.

  • Wow! One of the greatest books I’ve ever read.

    Wow! It’s no wonder that I’ve heard quite a lot of people speaking so highly of this book. Michelle and Barack have been one of my people-inspirations when it comes to mastering English as my second language and as becoming a better human being. Through the pages, we easily got that Michelle went through a lot. But, seeing that she imposed herself to keep her privacy as a wife, mother, a daughter makes her be considered even more one of a kind of woman! Nowadays, it has not been easy maintaining stable relationships, and she did really well having to manage quite a lot of people out of her family! It’s no wonder that she’s been worshiped by a lot of people worldwide. It broke my heart to read every time she got her heart broken, but kept her head up and commiserated with so many families. I’m happy to have had the opportunity to get to know Michelle’s viewpoint about a lot of controversial topics, even she’s not feeling comfortable about politics. I did wish I’d read more about what happened during the presidential election, what she thinks of what the fate of the U.S would be like in the upcoming years. However, I know that we gotta be careful when it comes expressing our thoughts of others, especially in times, where it’s easy to be labeled as whatever people like to call us when intending to put us down. We, who belong to minority groups have been misled to believe that we are not worthy of love, better opportunities and that we should live like ghosts. This is what has felt like being black, gay, woman, Latino, et cetera. Reading this book, made me feel stronger as a gay-Latino-black math professor! Thank you, Michelle, for all your efforts to allow us to get to know more of you, your family, and legacy! The best of luck! 🇧🇷❤️

    As a 65 year old Canadian male, a reluctant reader and of Scottish decent, I’m amazed that I actually completed this book! This, of course, speaks volumes as to its riveting historical content, blended and told through the eyes of the girl next door! You are so right, Michelle, we are more the same than we are different!

    I must say up front that I am a Canadian with English and Irish heritage so I really appreciate the history cascading throughout this book. Michelle I felt like you were here visiting me as we shared your truth over a pot of lady grey tea! I savoured each page slowly, chapter by chapter as I knew that the end drew near. You are brilliant, encouraging thought provoking which is the reason I am reading your book again! Thank you, Mrs S James

    This book is a very frank, thoughtful and poignant account of the former First Lady’s life, leading up to, during, and after, life at the White House. Michelle Obama offers insight into how her upbringing has shaped her and made her into one of the leading role models, women can look up to. She shared the driving force behind what has always motivated her and Barack, which culminated in their 8 years at the White House. She shared her drive to to leave behind a legacy of an impeccable standard of selflessness in her work, always mindful that it needed to serve a greater purpose - to leave the world a better place then the one they grew up in. Her book is beautifully written, and warm in its tone, as if one is having a conversation with her. It was truly an honour to have the former FLOTUS share so much if herself with all of us! A memorable, inspiring and unforgettable book, written by one of the most iconic citizen’s of the world! A gracious and heartfelt thank you to Michelle for sharing so much of herself with all of us!!!
