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.

Michelle takes us on a walk through her intimate moments of her life. I especially loved the openness with which she talks of her connection with her African roots. An honest and open story that I feel so accurately reflects the warm, human, beautiful couple we saw on our screens.

More than 30 years ago, nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell and his team at Cornell University, in partnership with teams in China and England, embarked upon the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease. What they found, when combined with findings in Campbell's laboratory, opened their eyes to the dangers of a diet high in animal protein and the unparalleled health benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet.

An informative listen which will change my habits. It took a long time getting to practical points with real guidance on what to eat more or less of, I would have liked more of this but well worth the time to listen.

Any additional comments?

The Author presents a straightforward solution. It's practical and I'm in no doubt of the merits of the proposals - it works!!
I had it on constant replay and revisit it for time to time as a reminder or to renew my focus but the book presents a can do solution in plain English.
I'm definitely a fan.
