This is a book for 2020. I listened to it during the Covid19 pandemic and finished it during the time of the George F protests...D. Trump's most unbecoming hours. I came to better know and desire to emulate the Obamas in my 8-kid family. Michelle is a born storyteller. Her voice as she reads calming, truth telling. I don't read political or autobiographical texts but Michelle shows you around the political context, she connects her story with your family, with kids, with my own sense of growth, discovery and inner struggle. I am in awe. So pleased I decided to read it. I couldn't put it down. The issues covered are all the key ones for a woman, any child of mine, for those of us coming from a history of struggle and painful social minority, traumatic experiences. Thank you Michelle for the passion, the hard work and inspiration, the powerful message to keep striving
