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.

Outstanding biography, one I highly recommend. The only issue I have is the last few hours is so focused on politics.... and if you don’t agree with her husband, she doesn’t understand you. She seems like a great lady/wife/mother, and I appreciate what she has done.
