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

'A genuine page-turner, full of intimacies and reflections' Evening Standard

'A polished pearl of a memoir' New York Times

'A rich, entertaining and candid memoir. And overall Obama's a fun person to sit alongside as she tells you the story of her life . . . it is as beautifully written as any piece of fiction' i

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.

'Offers new insights into her upbringing on the south side of Chicago and the highs and lows of life with Barack Obama. . . a refreshing level of honesty about what politics really did to her. I have read Barack Obama's two books so far, and this is like inserting a missing piece of reality into the narrative of his dizzying journey' Guardian

'I found myself lifting my jaw from my chest at the end of every other chapter . . . this was not the Obama I thought I knew. She was more' Independent

'An inspirational memoir that also rings true' Daily Telegraph

    An honest, personal reflection on what it must be like being the life partner of someone with probably one of the hardest jobs on Earth. I’m British, and have an inadequate depth of knowledge of the complexities of The United States of America. But I believe I saw honesty in Barack Obama during his time as President, and have read honesty in Michelle’s biography.

    I certainly felt as if I were involved in this incredible journey of this remarkable, insightful woman. Her honesty is almost brutal, yet somehow manages to be also beautiful. Most mothers can readily identify with her fierce maternal protection. The love within the family is truly inspiring Michelle Obama’s humanity and warmth is palpable. High office serviced to highlight her humility. This was indeed one of my can’t-put-down books.

    Such a great read
  • Interesting read

    By Raider88
    It was an interesting read to see behind the scenes of the life of a first lady. One that has more class, character and intelligence than the current President. A smart and sensible woman. Well worth the read.
