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 started off a little slow. The overall feel was to me a lot of complaining about what should have been expected as a First Lady. Almost like it was a chore to Michelle be the First Lady. Also a lot of racial comparing. I was disappointed but still finished the book. Barrack Obama did such a great job as our president I wish he could still be in charge today.
