Inspiring follow up to Becoming. Must read if you need a light in a dark world. Honest and genuine with classy humor.
Michelle Obama, in my opinion, has joined the ranks of Eleanor Roosevelt as a historically significant and outstanding woman. She is an inspiration; her thoughtful and eloquent second book are full of sources of joy and are such a model for today's citizens. She embodies what is great about America, in spite of some of the very painful aspects of our history. What a legacy the Obamas have left, in contrast to the horrors of #45!
Michelle Obama exudes grace, intelligence, practicality
I enjoyed her stories of growing up in Chicago, her inspirational stories of her parents and grandparents, of her days of living in the White House, even the personal glimpse inside her we marriage, as well as other personal antidotes. That said, the book dragged a bit and I had a difficult time connecting to her message that was meant to inspire me.
Same condescending bs
I was anxious to listen to this book. Michelle is such a good writer and her voice is really powerful! I loved it! Cheers from Brazil!
Beautifully narrated. Inspiring collection of advice for every season of life
I didn’t want the book to be over!
I actually liked Becoming more.
She’s so AMAZING
❤ Beautiful, Love it
I like watching Michelle Obama when giving speeches, as a guest on television shows and when visiting schools and organizations. Obama's first book, Becoming, was better because it provided her life story from childhood through her husband's Presidency. This book provides Obama's feelings about different topics with the hope that her experiences and lessons learned could help those in similar situations, namely her target reading audience. I believe her lessons could be beneficial to a much broader spectrum of people, even those who have criticized her positions whenever possible, because her experiences led to good, bad, fearful, and sad human feelings that we all have and can learn from her generally positive and optimistic insights. Although I enjoyed Becoming more, this book may be more useful to help readers cope with certain life situations.
Didn’t like this, I’ll try some of her other works
Thank you for sharing yourself in this way, Ms. Michelle!
I loved every word of this book.
What an enjoyable book! She is so relaxing to listen to!
Straight from the hea! Both her books a]have been fantastic!
