Description

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States
 
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • WATCH THE EMMY-NOMINATED NETFLIX ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY • OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • NAACP IMAGE AWARD WINNER • ONE OF ESSENCE’S 50 MOST IMPACTFUL BLACK BOOKS OF THE PAST 50 YEARS

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.

    The timing of this book was highly appropriate for me because politics, war, division in our country, along with post pandemic social healing, it reminded me that there are still truthful, socially conscious people and leaders who can run a country for all the right reasons and believe in the greater good. Thank you for such a bright light at the end of what has been a long dark tunnel.
  • “Becoming” is a gem!

    Check out Rumble (uncensored) app and you will soon find out the real truth of the Obamas, Clinton’s ect crooked and corrupt ways of the deep state marxist democrats. Feels like Michael is an actual victim here in this the perfect innocent brainless pawn. Hope this helps we have been all fooled! Goes back to the Clinton’s. You think he’s not puppeteering this presidency? Watch once this is written 5000 other 5 star reviews will follow saying…ignore the one stars. Demons to say the least, cheating to win/steal. Truth is revealing itself as the light shines thru the darkness. Pray, love, have a conscience, have a voice. God Bless.

    Great to hear about the journey of a former First Lady. Skip the politics and absorb the account of Michelle Obama's journey. One can learn much from this book if read with the right eyes and heart. IGNORE THE 1 STAR REVIEWS... POLITICAL JUNKIES DOING WHAT THEY DO BEST. HIGH ON OPINION HOOTING FROM THEIR COMFY AMERICAN LOCATIONS, FEW OF THEM HAVE BEEN TO THE DARKEST LOCATIONS OF PLANET 🪖🇺🇸

    It was great to read her life and journey to becoming the first Black First Lady of the USA. Her parents instilling in her she could do anything, her love for family, and sacrifice of her career for a bigger cause makes me love her more.
