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 love michelle obama! But I feel that although she describes her life very well, its not written in any creative or tasteful manner. i think she could have been a bit more creative in her writting style. But still a good read and I still love her!

In Everthing Is F*cked, Mark Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment, and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive.

I feel like the book started off well and then somewhere halfway he kind of went off on a tangent and I didnt care for it. Im glad hes reqd Yuval Hararis 'Sapiens' but I felt offended when he basically rephrased what Yuval said to add on to his text. ill stick with Gary Bishop moving forward. The beginning was nice tho.
