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.

I don’t know that I would have read this book from beginning to end. She starts with a lot of family memories and stories at the beginning — that while interesting and relevant to the woman she became and the beliefs she built her life on — I probably would have skipped over the pages to get to the meaty parts. But listening to Michelle’s voice in this audiobook drew me in and illuminated how her spirit, her perspective and her ability to see the funny and absurd is the most serious moments is the way we all can get through the privileges and challenges of life.
