Loved the concepts of living in present and control what is in control. I was already aware of Yoga and Surynamaskar. Good book to have in your collection.

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.

"impossible is Nothing" should be the title of this book. She depicted the trials and tribulations of her childhood, living in southern Chicago neighborhood. Her confidence in getting selected at Princeton. Her metamorphosis as the first lady of the most powerful Country is a story which is extraordinary.
