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.

She reads very slowly, pretty boring story.

Mrs. Obama reads very slow with little emotion. We listened at 1.25 speed which helped and was more of a natural speed.

The story is too detailed about boring things and wasn’t very interesting at all.
