Audio Book Summary

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States

In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.
In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers 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. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.

    Remarkable... she grew up and lived as so many of us did to then rise above our circumstances and become professionals. Michelle Robinson, however, married one of us Black professionals, who continued to rise and become our first Black president! Everyone needs to read/ listen to this book for you will be better for it!

    Too much emphasis on her emotions. Finding out Michelle Obama was stripped of law license for misconduct. NOT a fan.

    I have mixed emotions with this book.. one part of me wants to love her as I always have but after listening to this book I am not a Awh stricken with her as I was. I can’t put my finger on it but I have found myself not like liking her as much as I once have. I really hate to say this but it’s how I feel.

    Brilliantly written, brilliantly narrated, by a brilliant woman. I am an avid reader and I found this to be one of the most profound historical works I have ever encountered. Exceptional, moving, honest. triumphant.
