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 is such an incredible read. Mrs. Obama, you fill me with hope and optimism. Thank you for sharing your journey, as a Mother, a wife, a daughter, sister, friend and First Lady. This is an elegantly written account of much of your life, and it confirms, what I already believed to be true....you honestly believe that goodness will prevail. “Hope”. Thank you and the President for the hope. You are truly missed.
  • Such a great book!

    I felt as if she was talking to me one-to-one. I felt as if I’ve had a conversation with Michelle herself! She draws you in as keeps you there!

    Reading the perspective of Michelle Robinson into Michelle Obama and so forth,has really given insight into how she became who she is to say.From her childhood,to Uni and into the work force it’s fascinating.Especially since she doesn’t hold herself back and orates how she really felt and currently feels about certain controversial topics of our day. Thanks for reading my review,hope you enjoy it😁
  • A Wonderful Book!

    I am probably one of the few who waited this long to read this amazing book. I wish I had read it sooner! I have been a fan of the Obamas since the beginning, even more so now. “Becomingik” confirms everything I thought I knew and loved about them both. Michelle is the kind of woman I would like to be, and the friend I’d like to have. I am humbled and inspired!

    This book is a total misrepresentation of the woman. She is a total racist, anti-America, hater. Read between the lines. So sad that so many were fooled by her and her husband’s total disdain for the country that put them at it’s pinnacle. Shameful!
  • Not very original.
