Couldn't finish listening to it
I couldn't finish it. After about 3/4 through it, I just gave up. It was not inspiring. I like Michelle Obama but this book could have been so much better. I get it: she's a mother; she's had some great opportunities in her life such as her elite schooling, her colleges, her work life; she wanted children so the story included a lot about them. She glossed over the white house years when I wanted more. Also, I didn't understand the title's relationship to her story.
