I loved it!

I love and respect her so much more after hearing more about her life and childhood! She is inspirational!

No book cover disappointed

No book cover!

No cover with no notice. Story is great.

I loved this book and wanted to own it. I was pretty disappointed thiftbooks didn’t warn me and sent me a plain white book with no cover.

Beautiful human!

She’s such a badass!! So sweet and caring, the entire family is. I had so much respect for her before reading this and now it’s tripled. We did not deserve this family as leaders of the nation 💛 they are truly genuine human beings with hearts of gold.

I liked it

Beautifully written, but missing the dust jacket.

Love !

Michelle Obama is transparent and vulnerable in this engaging memoir. It reads a little slowly and is repetitive during the election periods. But overall, a good, easy read.

Loved learning about Mrs. Obama and her service in Illinois and her relationship with the President

I live the way the story starts at the beginning when Mrs. Obama is a little girl and the plight of her father whom she adores and he works tirelessly anyway with the pain.

Great read

So interesting, and well written!

An eloquently written book by an eloquent woman

Michelle is such a talented writer. I enjoyed this book thoroughly. She handles every topic with the utmost grace and respect. It's definitely a page-turner and very enlightening. I highly recommend to those who enjoy biographies.

Good book but my cover was not on the book.

It’s a great book for Adults

Beautifully written

Michelle is nothing but fabulous in my opinion. I had very high expectations foe this book and it met them beautifully. Getting an inside view into the struggle between work, politics, and family is something we can all understand, to a degree.

Worth a read

I always admired this First Family, but did not realize the true depth & total commitment the Obamas dedicated to the office. Reading this book further deepened my respect & appreciation for both of them. It was only in the years following that we come to really know this President & First Lady.
