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.

This book told an amazing story of overcoming and taking every opportunity to make your life the best. I was worried it was going to be a political book but it wasn’t.

The narration sounded like a computer talking and was very hard for me to even listen to the book. Very disappointed that I purchased the book. I would recommend everyone to listen to the sample before buying this book.
