As a middle aged white guy growing up in wonderful circumstances (not in the US), Michelle Obama’s story is incredibly inspiring. I think girls, Americans, people from minorities might find it even more so.

I loved her voice and am grateful she took the time to do the audiobook herself. Everyone should listen.

I like Seth's tweets but they don't make a book. Perhaps in written form the reader could skip bits but as a spoken book, it's unintelligible. Summaries, recaps and straight out repeats of great slabs mean this is agony to listen to. Couldn't finish it.

It could literally be half the length and still be repeatitive. A lot of the Trump books are rushed, but this one doesn't seem to have had any attention at all from an Editor.

Saying things over and over doesn't prove collusion, it proves you know how to copy and paste.

I think Ric Jerrom reads them better than me. Really enjoying his performance. Some people don't like the detail and pace of the series but i do, and even better read to me.
