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 Obama beautifully recalls her life, capturing her highs, lows, struggles and triumphs in the most eloquent way. A must read for everyone, but in particular, for people of colour who will completely identify with her observations and experiences navigating this world.
