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.

I loved the first part however had to cut it short due to her getting into political views. I feel she was trying to incite racism towards the end - there is a way to tell her amazing story without that part. I did not support most of her husbands views however the story of her and her husband was pretty cool. Worth the read up to chapter 20.
