    The book wasn’t gripping, but it was interesting. I’ve always thought she was super-smart and clever, and that seems true, but when she mentions she’s not overly introspective, I found that hard to believe. However, by the end of the book, I wondered if it was true, because she minimized some events in her life that would have been compelling had she gone deeper.

  2. Rashi Nagar (Verified Purchase)

    I thought she did an really good job of showing us the human side of who she and Barack were. Her description of meeting and getting to know, then falling in love with, Barack, is really interesting. It was NOT love at first sight! They became friends, and then sweethearts, and then, over time, deeply in love.

  3. Nirmal Ranganathan (Verified Purchase)

    This is an interesting, beautifully written book by one of the most admired women in the world. The book includes many personal details about Mrs. Obama’s background that I didn’t know about and enjoyed reading. I loved the photo section.

  4. Sonu Dave (Verified Purchase)

    I was amazed reading this book. It tells the unbelievable transition Michael made to become the first lady. A great read. Condition of book was great.

  5. Jayshree Oberoi (Verified Purchase)

    What comes across most in this book is Michelle Obama’s lack of self-pity combined with clarity of vision. I suspect this was a difficult book to write—she knew that whatever she wrote, somebody, and maybe a lot of people, would criticize her for it. She therefore focuses quite a bit on what might be called practical insight and empowerment, rather than on settling political scores. That’s probably a wise choice—after all, her husband’s terms as President showed that very few people were interested in political settlements or compromise.
