We never had to ask because it is obvious in everything she says and does that she does care. Without a doubt, she cares more than anything about her family, but also cares deeply about this country.
Then I read this book, an eloquent memoir, strikingly honest and as inspiring as I suspected it would be. I felt even more admiration and respect for her. She recounts her time growing up on the South Side of Chicago as she shares the joys of her childhood as well as some of the tough things. She was a feisty child, driven to do well in school. We witness the grief she experienced over the loss of her father and her continuing admiration and love for her mother who was tenacious in seeking a good education for her children.
In this memoir, she is so open and honest and it feels so intimate. Michelle shares her love for her husband and daughters. The things she chose to focus on as First Lady - children and their health, assisting military families, developing a program for mentoring young women reflect the things that are important to her and the kind of person she is. With an intellect such as hers, she easily could have taken on larger policy issues, but instead focused on children and families bringing people into the White House who would not have had the opportunity to be there if not for her.
This book is over pages and it never felt long. The writing is good and I just kept turning page after page always interested in what she would say next. A remarkable story of a remarkable woman. View all comments. Nov 16, Emily May rated it it was amazing Shelves: , memoirs-or-bios , nonfiction.
As an adult, I wanted to pass those words to a new generation. Look, I'm not a happy crier. I might cry at songs about leaving and missing someone; I might cry at books where things don't work out; I might cry at movies where someone dies. I've just never really understood why people get all choked up over happy, inspirational things.
But Michelle Obama's kindness and empathy changed that. This book had me in tears for all the right reasons. This is not really a book about politics, though political experiences obviously do come into it. It's a shame that some will dismiss this book because of a difference in political opinion, when it is really about a woman's life. About growing up poor and black on the South Side of Chicago; about getting married and struggling to maintain that marriage; about motherhood; about being thrown into an amazing and terrifying position. I hate words like "inspirational" because they've become so overdone and cheesy, but I just have to say it-- Michelle Obama is an inspiration.
I had the privilege of seeing her speak at The Forum in Inglewood, and she is one of the warmest, funniest, smartest, down-to-earth people I have ever seen in this world.
And yes, I know we present what we want the world to see, but I truly do think it's genuine. I think she is someone who really cares about people - especially kids - and wants to give them better lives and opportunities. She's obviously intelligent, but she also doesn't gussy up her words. She talks straight, with an openness and honesty rarely seen. She's been one of the most powerful women in the world, she's been a graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law School, she's had her own successful career, and yet she has remained throughout that same girl - Michelle Robinson - from a working class family in Chicago.
I don't think there's anyone who wouldn't benefit from reading this book.

This book absolutely humanized them and show me how much they care about others.
The contrast with the actual political situation is blatant. View all 5 comments.
I cried - or was teary-eyed so many times - I lost count. She is gifted in her ability to express her own emotions- write with tremendous insight and sensitivity Audiobook read by Michelle Obama For the past three days - all I wanted to do was listen to Michelle Obama Michelle questioned herself She wanted to do well.
No matter how great she was doing she still had insecurities - doubted herself. For me She will contribute her way!
At the same time it was quite beautiful how she totally understands her husbands brilliant mind and vision - how Barack was the perfect candidate at the perfect time. She grew into becoming comfortable with his running. They did well overall Michelle raised two daughters in the White House as normal as she could. A frightening story about wild sedated animals will having you saying But have no fear I was teary eye during much of this part. Parts I remembered well - other personal circumstances that Michelle had to share about the campaign, I knew nothing about.
Much made me sad and angry - Election Day had my nerves stirred all over again The beginning of this Audiobook Not at the White House. She was no longer the First Lady. Simply a night alone in her own house. None of us readers have lived in the White House - but she shares a story that most readers will connect with.

Enjoy it. A moment of solitude. If you like cheese toast - this might be a time to have a slice. Michelle spends a long time telling us about her early childhood.
But - during a break from listening to the audiobook is when I did some serious reflecting. But then I understood my own and impatience.
The light went off for me of why this portion of the book was valuable to me and also triggering. Being one of the few blacks within mostly a white environment for soooo many years was a constant pressure. Her years at Princeton really shows what she went through.
