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.

I thought this book was an insightful journey through Michelle Obama’s life. I really enjoyed learning about how accomplished and impressive she is. However, there were times in the book where I felt she was complaining non-stop, and it is difficult to listen to a person complain about how hard her life is when she is more wealthy, powerful, and successful than 99.999999999999 percent of the population. Other than that though this was a fantastic book.
