This book should be added to required reading lists !!! Amazingly intimate and vulnerable, Becoming takes the reader on a journey from Chicago’s 1970’s south-side to the halls of the White House. Worth multiple listens, especially with kids

I wish I’d had this book as a freshman in college. 20 years later and the revelations it has brought me are tremendous. Thank you for sharing this treasure with us.
