I didn’t think I could admire and respect former First Lady Michelle Obama any more than I already did. For eight years she graced our country with her presence, her intellect, her caring. We never had to ask because it is obvious in everything she says and does that she does care. Without a doubt, she cares more than anything about her family, but also cares deeply about this country. Then I read this book, an eloquent memoir, strikingly honest and as inspiring as I suspected it would be. I fel...
I’d been lucky to have parents, teachers, and mentors who’d fed me with a consistent, simple message: You matter. As an adult, I wanted to pass those words to a new generation. Look, I'm not a happy crier. I might cry at songs about leaving and missing someone; I might cry at books where things don't work out; I might cry at movies where someone dies.

Do we settle for the world as it is, or do we work for the world as it should be? We learn about her college life and her career as a lawyer. Along
I usually don’t rate memoirs but this is a 10/5 — I’m writing this with tears streaming down my face I am beyond moved!!!!
Audiobook read by Michelle ObamaFor the past three days - all I wanted to do was listen to Michelle Obama..... I cried - or was teary-eyed so many times - I lost count. THIS BOOK must be ‘especially’ special to her immediate family and closest friends ....but it’s also a great gift to the rest of us. Nobody else but Michelle could have written this book - it’s so MICHELLE’S STORY! She is gifted in her ability to express her own emotions- write with tremendous insight and sensitivity and from beg...
