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.

The book was well written and really seemed to be everything that she was holding back while she and Barack were in the White House. I was able to connect in so many ways as an educated African American woman. Not just because we share the same first name, but the experiences and feelings as a loving wife, protective mother and being judged and labeled as an “angry black woman”. Thanks to this book, I’ve been encouraged to press harder. I’m encouraged that “when they go low, we go higher”! I’m 45 years old, fueled and I’m determined to fight the fight and keep the faith.
