Becoming
by Michelle Obama
Praise For This Book:
"She emerges in these pages as a first lady who steadfastly believed in her husband’s abilities but had no illusions that the sludge of partisanship and racism would melt away under the sunny slogans of hope and change." ~ Jennifer Szalai - The New York Times

"The former first lady’s wit and warmth shine through in an extraordinarily candid account of her life inside and outside the White House ... Becoming is frequently funny, sometimes indignant or enraged, and ...in turns rawly emotional" --Guardian (UK)

"For some Americans, she notes of herself and Barack, “We ourselves were a provocation.” But both of them had long ago decided “that the way Barack and I lived our lives would show people the truth about who we really were.” This was what they did in the White House. Now—meticulously, movingly, gloriously—this is what Michelle has done in Becoming. " --Vanity Fair

"I am honored to be interviewing @MichelleObama about her incredible new memoir, Becoming. It is such a gorgeous book. I loved learning more about this inspiring woman and her life journey. " --Reece Witherspoon

""She just opens up herself; it's so vulnerable. ... It is Michelle Obama's personal story, of course, but I believe it's going to spark within you the desire to think about your own becoming." - Oprah

"Obama writes with a refreshing candor, as though her keen awareness of her celebrity is matched only by her eagerness to shed the exhausting veneer that helped enable her husband’s political rise." --Hannah Giorgis, The Atlantic

"Obama’s voice conveys an openhearted sincerity, underlain with the same practicality and hopefulness by which she steers her life". -- Booklist

There are no dramatic revelations and not much overt politics here, but fans of the Obamas will find an interesting, inspiring saga of quiet social revolutions. --Publishers Weekly
