This is such a well-written and inspiring book. Michelle Obama's story is so interesting and should appeal to all despite what your politics may be. There are lessons to be learned here and her story is told in a way that is not at all foreboding or overwhelming. I enjoyed every page.

Obama is powerfully honest about both the delighful (she likes to shop at Target, she got to meet the Queen of England) and tough issues (infertility, the media spotlight, the focus on her clothes, balancing work and motherhood). I was moved to tears more than once and highly recommend this book.

I've always admired Michelle Obama, and am even more impressed by her now. Reading Becoming is like hearing stories from a smart and caring friend.

I have always been a Michelle Obama fan. She has done so much for kids. I really enjoyed the book and her story. Was not a big fan of her husbands but understand more now and really have changed my opinion.

Down-to-earth, dedicated, passionate, driven--this is my takeaway after reading Michelle Obama's autobiography. She's a humanitarian at heart, and I'm blown away by how easily and naturally she advocates for others; this is her way of making the world a better place. I loved especially the peeks into her relationship with her husband (oh, that marriage proposal!), her girls, and her inner circle. An eye-opening and human view into her life. I'm so very glad to have read her story. She makes me feel like I can and should do more. 4.5 stars
