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.

Some stories need to be told not because they are "the most extraordinary" but because they are equally extraordinary. Becoming is such a story; and the narration by Michelle herself only adds to the experience. it almost feels like you are in a one-on-one chat with her as she tells you her story.
