I'll admit that I did not pay attention to Becoming during its release. Not for any particular reason. However, when Michelle Obama's, Former but by far greatest FLOTUS of all time, tour passed Toronto, I was compelled. With no hesitation I ordered the audiobook. I was very interested to hear directly from Michelle her story and journey. Oh boy, after a few chapters in, I knew that this will be by far the greatest book I've listened in 2019.

I normally read/listen to books from great people with the objective of absorbing wisdom and learning from their successes and failures. This is the first book of its kind that I never felt l was looking up or far. I felt connected with Michelle and the Obama's in a unique way. I found so many things in common with her and their journey to the extent that I was listening sometimes in disbelief. The connection was palpable and the hope was present.

Having two daughters I found Michelle's journey full of wisdom, empathy and hope for the future. I just wish that me and my family become what Michelle and the Obamas are today. Am I worth it? YES, I AM!

Don't hesitate to pick up this book. I would recommend audiobook. there is some extra empathy boost listening to Michelle directly. Thanks for this wonderful experience FLOTUS

If you have been following Yuval Noah Harari’s work, you will not be disappointed. He still delivers the same experience, knowledge and insight.

If you are new to his work, I recommend this to read first and then go to Sapiens and Homo Deus.

All these years I have been a fan of tennis for the sake of the sport. After this book, I’ve being touched at the soul-level.

Adding one more contradiction to Andre’s book of life, this book finds me in January 2018, kinda like it waiting for me to be ready to listen. I’m not sure if I’ll ever have the opportunity to meet Andre in person so that is why I‘m foolishly using this as the vehicle to reach out. This book has done for me something that I needed but I guess I was not ready to ingest. The affirmation that I’m not alone in this world where contradictions, pain, rebellion and chaos junkiness. Im not sure if that last world exist, but I don’t care. I just hope that I can have a few hours over hamburgers to thank Andre in person for my “at the right time formation” Thanks Andre
