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.

What an incredible woman and life. Michelle has an inspiring story to tell and does so in a captivating manner.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book and was sad when it ended.

Tried to get in to this book but it just wasn't grabbing me. Story is rambling, weird and has no sense of direction. I sadly had to give up on this story.
I would not recommend.
