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.

Michelle told the story well but after a couple of hours in, I got bored with the whole story.I feel in todays world we need to move forward and remember that we are all one in our country. It really is not a black thing or a white thing, we really need to get pass all of this and not keep bringing this black and white issue up. We all have the same opportunity’s today. So after I paid for this book I just never finished it.
