Becoming is a great book. Our editors rated it with a top 5 stars.

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

User reviews about the book

  • Tax payer

    By Margerdh
    What’s left to say. For eight years she was on every talk show out there. She talked about drinking water ( yes that was her campaign for a short time and exercise as well ( but we don’t have money for a personal trainer like she did). So I ask. What’s left to to write about?

    By MrsEPresley24
    I’d rather throw my money in the garbage then spend it on a book this anti-American race baiter wrote. So glad we have the beautiful & classy Melania as our First Lady; Melania is a First Lady I can be proud of.

  • Greedy creep

    By Jefadoova
    Another money grab move by the so-called “hero to the poor”. She a Barack have done nothing but pad their pockets during and now after his presidency. His and her “legacy” is in full effect—lies and greed.
  • Irrelevant Bore

    By 3g(s) Freak
    Michele was and is an irrelevant bore.
  • @ the snowflake

    By I'maluckypenny
    The people who rated the book one start aren't affected by your one star but rather the author. And hon, be quiet Obama isn't the best president we've had. It's appreciated what he did for the LGBT community but that's all.
