In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America – the first African-American to serve in that role – she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.

Here I Am, I Have Got A lot To Say Let me start by saying this is a book that is difficult to resist, it pulled me in, the writing is sublime. Michelle Obama has a way with words, this is one of the most fascinating and informative books I have read this yearThere is a great deal to admire about Michelle Obama. A young woman brought up on the other side of the tracks in Chicago, went to Princeton and then Harvard for her law degree, and became the First Lady Of The United States. Some of her success was due to luck, but most is due to her intelligence and her hard work.

She says in her book , ‘Here I am, I have got a lot to say.’ Her book is divided into three sections-:’Becoming Me,” “Becoming…

Wonderful I thought I couldn’t love this family more, but after reading this beautiful, moving story, I know that I and millions of others were so right to have faith in these genuinely good people. I am glad that Michelle gets to have her Barack back again, but oh, how very much they are missed – especially in contrast to what came after…

She Has Helped To Shape America’s Evolution. Michelle is a highly intelligent woman who many astute observers have said was the real power in the White House. Undoubtedly, she influenced policy. She is a feisty lady and is perhaps at times a little boastful. In the opening pages of her book we are told: she always, no matter what, got A’s at school, has been a lawyer ( one often wonders if there is anyone in America who is not a lawyer), a vice president at a hospital, and the director of a non profit organization, a bride, a mother, and, of course, the First Lady. Phew!The book like her life rattles off events and achievements at a bewildering pace. It’s quite a ride. She has met shallow and hypocritical people-I bet, and strong good people. She has been described as the most powerful woman in the world, an absurdity, as well as an angry black woman. Michelle has been hurt, humiliated and made fun of. Her eight years in the White House are detailed, warts and all.At times she…
