Escucha el íntimo, poderoso e inspirador libro de memorias de la exprimera dama de Estados Unidos. En sus memorias, profundamente reflexivas y cautivadoras, Michelle Obama nos invita a entrar en su mundo relatando las experiencias que han forjado su carácter, desde su infancia en la zona sur de Chicago, hasta los años que vivió en la residencia más famosa del mundo, pasando por su etapa como alta directiva, durante la que tuvo que compaginar la maternidad con la vida profesional.

A powerful story in which it is possible to seee the power of convictions and values to make a meaningful life. Michelle gave us an enormous possibility to know how to build power from the marginality listening and understanding people needs and dreams.
Also is a family story that thrive to keep integrated and project as a unity and individually.

Fresh and entertained narrative that combines love and adventure in a magistral way. English, Chilean and Chinese characters relates each other in this story. Gold fever in California becomes the epicenter of the story in which the main roles converge in search of something and got something completely different but more compelling.
Good recommendation and worth the time invested !

Glad of having read (listened) this brilliant book. It allowed to me to have a much much better of the human beings development. It filled a lot of gaps I had on my history reading and I got a coherent understanding of the practices evolution. The way human expanded geographically organizing into different forms to take care of their concerns gave rise to what we know now as the civilized world.
Good data strengthened author perspective and invites to see the world from different perspectives.

I strongly recommend its lecture to everyone interested in amplify her understanding of human history from the very beginning until our days

Powerful interpretation of Learning as a purpose in life to grow, improve and transcend.
The concept of “lost” highlight in good way a true moment and an opportunity to make a decision: get blocked or learn.
Good examples to make distinctions easy to comprehend.

A crude story of a German mother who suffered the horror of Auschzwitz to follow and care her 5 children imprisoned for being born from a romani father.
He fought against the circumstances to give sense and meaning to a subhuman living conditions.
And finally accepted the death in a serene way singing a nest song.

Sad but beautiful book. Worth reading to get closer to one of the worst period of human history.

It is a entertained set of stories lived and played by a very human detective who end up wounded and afraid of death.
The language is full Mexican style and the narrative is always focused on the man behind the role who feels and suffer every situation.

Highly recommendable to enjoy good stories of Mexican people in Mexican situations.
