An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States

 

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • WATCH THE EMMY-NOMINATED NETFLIX ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY • OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • NAACP IMAGE AWARD WINNER
• ONE OF ESSENCE’S 50 MOST IMPACTFUL BLACK BOOKS OF THE PAST 50 YEARS

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.

 

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers 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. Warm, wise, and revelatory,
Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Michelle Robinson Obama served as First Lady of the United States from 2009 to 2017. A graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, Mrs. Obama started her career as an attorney at the Chicago law firm Sidley & Austin, where she met her future husband, Barack Obama. She later worked in the Chicago mayor’s office, at the University of Chicago, and at the University of Chicago Medical Center. Mrs. Obama also founded the Chicago chapter of Public Allies, an organization that prepares young people for careers in public service.

 

The Obamas currently live in Washington, DC, and have two daughters, Malia and Sasha.

Good read!

This book is so good, I read it twice, got the audiobook and bought one more as a gift for my sibling. Totally worth it! Whenever I read it or listen to the audiobook, it always inspires me.

Pure magic!

An extraordinarily sincere book, full of optimism no matter what. You learn a lot from Michelle, eg how not to whine, look for excuses and complain all the time, but to act. Highly recommended!

Sehr zu empfehlen

In Becoming erzählt Michelle Obama unter anderem von ihrer Kindheit im Süden Chicagos, den Herausforderungen vor die sie in Ausbildung und Beruf gestellt wurde, dem Kennenlernen ihres Mannes Barack, bis hin zum Leben im Weißen Haus als First Family. Es ist kein Buch über Politik, sondern viel mehr die Geschichte einer wirklich bewundernswerten Frau.
