    Audiobook read by Michelle Obama For the past three days - all I wanted to do was listen to Michelle Obama..... I cried - or was teary-eyed so many times - I lost count. THIS BOOK must be ?especially? special to her immediate family and closest friends ....but it?s also a gr...

    I found this fast-paced, interesting, and touching. Also, heartbreaking to be painfully reminded of having once had a thoughtful, ethical president and first lady, and the vindictive, misogynist, racist disaster who doesn?t read that we have now. Michelle wrote about how guilty s...

    I have finally come to enjoy listening to audio books, at least non fiction, fiction not so much. So glad I listened to this one as having it read by Michelle, made it more personal. Plus, she is an excellent reader, loved the tone and clarity of her voice. I have always admired her...

    I?d been lucky to have parents, teachers, and mentors who?d fed me with a consistent, simple message: You matter. As an adult, I wanted to pass those words to a new generation. Look, I'm not a happy crier. I might cry at songs about leaving and missing someone; I might cry at ...

    I didn?t think I could admire and respect former First Lady Michelle Obama any more than I already did. For eight years she graced our country with her presence, her intellect, her caring. We never had to ask because it is obvious in everything she says and does that she does care. W...

    This book is poorly written. Only fans of M.O. could possibly like this book as it doesn't stick to facts. They are the only ones allowed to give reviews of it. I wonder what is being said about Trump books? My review has been deleted twice. Hopefully I am allowed to say this little b...

    "I was humbled and excited to be First Lady, but not for one second did I think I'd be sliding into some glamorous, easy role. Nobody who has the words 'first' and 'black' attached to them ever would. I stood at the foot of the mountain, knowing I'd need to climb my way into favor." ...

    MIND BLOWN!! While I admit to being a reading fiend when it comes to politics, as some will no doubt have realised, I also find much pleasure in learning about people through biographies and memoirs. Knowing full well that I would be swept up in the wave that surrounded the recent r...

    This isn?t so much a review as it is a tiny opportunity to thank the book gods for all the opportunities reading and books have given me. Getting to meet and share time with Michelle Obama was one of the craziest highlights of my professional life and speeding through this book to fi...

    4.5 stars!! I?ve had Becoming pre-ordered since I saw it was coming out. I was so excited to read it. Per my Amazon account, I purchased The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama in early 2007. When I read this book, I was moved and hoped this man would be president one day. When I was...

    I have loved Barack Obama since I watched his speech at the Democratic Convention in 2004.... but, I never really knew much about Michelle. Michelle came from humble beginnings, surrounded by loving parents, brother and extended family on the South Side of Chicago. She always strived ...

    Becoming like Michelle Obama herself, is both eloquent and relatable. She talks about becoming her, becoming us, and finally, becoming more. As most of us know by now, Michelle is from Chicago, grew up with loving and supportive parents, attended Princeton followed by Harvard for l...

    I just finished this PHENOMENAL book?seriously, probably THE best autobiography I?ve ever laid my hands on! It?s now in vogue?the coolest new trend?for people to write a book about their lives, and I respect that trend for allowing us to read more TRUE, REAL stories about REA...

    I understand the hype! I didn't know much about Michelle Obama nor her husband. This book absolutely humanized them and show me how much they care about others. The contrast with the actual political situation is blatant. Recommend! ...

    Michelle Obama calling Donald Trump a bully in one of the best selling books of the year gave me the strength to get through 2019. This was wonderful to listen to, Michelle is beautifully eloquent and her way with words was bewitching. I listened to this in the car and at times fou...

    Just to be up front, I voted for Barack in both 2008 and 2012, I?m male, not white, a naturally born citizen who generally vote Democrat. Since this book was written by a somewhat polarizing person I thought being upfront on who I am made sense in todays world of identity politics. A...
