In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners 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.

Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things that clutter our lives so we can make room for life's most important things - which actually aren't things at all. At age 30, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus walked away from their six-figure corporate careers, jettisoned most of their material possessions, and started focusing on what's truly important.

I loved the documentary on Netflix so was excited to get the book on Audible.

The narrator (NOT the author) was so dispassionate, no feeling in his voice, I wish it had been read by one of the authors of this book because it just didn’t engage me. Also it was really nothing to do with minimalism at all! Not worth the credit, sorry, and I really wanted to love it as I had the documentary.
