Product description

Review

An inspirational memoir that also rings true -- Gaby Wood ― Daily Telegraph, Five Stars

Obama's memoir is a genuine page-turner, full of intimacies and reflections. . . Allied to this candour is a steeliness of purpose. It is no exaggeration to say that every page of this book is, explicitly or otherwise, a reproach to Donald Trump, and a call-to-arms to those who would defeat the 45th President and all that he stands for -- Matt D'Ancona ―
Evening Standard

This is a rich, entertaining and candid memoir. And overall she's a fun person to sit alongside as she tells you the story of her life, warts and all. . . it is as beautifully written as any piece of fiction, with a similar warm languid tone to Ann Patchett's novel
Commonwealth -- Viv Groskop ― i, Five Stars

This revealing memoir offers new insights into her upbringing on the south side of Chicago and the highs and lows of life with Barack Obama. . .
Becoming is a 400-page expansion of this essential doctrine ['when they go low, we go high'], without compromising a refreshing level of honesty about what politics really did to her. I have read Barack Obama's two books so far, and this is like inserting a missing piece of reality into the narrative of his dizzying journey -- Afua Hirsch ― Guardian

I found myself lifting my jaw from my chest at the end of every other chapter, not because of any seedy insight into stories I'd always wondered about, but because, armed as I was with knowledge about her career, her mannerisms, and even her elbow-heavy dancing, this was not the Obama I thought I knew. She was more -- Kuba Shand-Baptiste ―
Independent

Inspiring. . . After 421 pages of
Becoming, I closed the book hoping that one day she would use her formidable intelligence, humanity - and humour - to offer a more tangible vision for how America might fight the rising tides of polarisation and hate ― Financial Times

Open and engaging. . . Obama writes with candour about the good times and bad ―
Daily Express

Of course,
Becoming is Michelle Obama's story, of how she moved from a girl on the South Side of Chicago to becoming one of the most powerful women in the world. But in the final pages of the book, Obama writes, "It's all a process, steps along a path. Becoming requires equal parts patience and rigor." Here, Obama is pushing us to reckon with our own becomings - to realise our own story and to have the power to tell it ― The Pool

She's a woman we've all fallen in love with because she radiates joy and wisdom, and
Becoming encapsulate this perfectly. It's also deeply honest - reading it makes you feel as though she's your close friend opening up to you ― Red Online

Obama writes with a refreshing candor ―
The Atlantic

In the best moments of
Becoming, the miracle of Michelle Obama arises ― Vanity Fair

[A] polished pearl of a memoir ―
New York Times

This beautifully written memoir... Twenty-five years ago she fell in love with a driven idealist, a man determined not to accept the world as it was. She feared his forceful intellect and ambition might swallow hers; instead, she found her voice ―
Sunday Times

Becoming serenely balances gravity and grace, uplift and anecdote.... Becoming is frequently funny, sometimes indignant or enraged, and when Michelle describes her father's early death from multiple sclerosis it turns rawly emotional ― Observer

This is a vivid and interesting account and all of that is to her credit. I certainly thought better of her by the end: she has put her heart into this ―
The Times

This is undeniably a political book, both a fierce critique of Donald Trump's administration's politics of hatred and a powerful remind of a better, more compassionate America ―
Metro

Candid, engaging. . . To read her reflections is to recall and hope for a better America. Mrs Obama pulls back the curtains around their lives in a way she could not while Mr Obama was in office. Besides her lovely turn of phrase, she is a gifted and empathetic observer ―
The Economist

Deeply moving. . .
Becoming is fundamentally about how to be a person in the world, how to live a purposeful life, and how to use the chances you have been given ― New Statesman

Her wonderful candid and affecting autobiography,
Becoming. . . brims over with such emotional truthfulness...what a tale. With its generosity of spirit, self-knowledge and hope, it is the perfected antidote to the man who now lives in the White House. A plangent, defiant, honest and uplifting book ― Sunday Telegraph, Five Stars

Intimate, inspiring and set to become hugely influential ―
Sunday Times, Books of the Year

What a memoir. What a woman. ―
Spectator

This brilliantly written and emotionally authentic memoir fills in some important gaps...not just a fascinating read but a genuinely moving one too ―
Mail on Sunday, Five Stars

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful journey that compels you to rediscover yourself.
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 23 June 2020
Am I good enough? Yes, I am.
Are we good enough? Yes, we are.

The journey of an average middle-class young girl from the South Side of Chicago to becoming the First Lady of the United States of America (FLOTUS), Michelle Obama has outlined her story in the most intricate way possible.

When we flip through the pages of a book, some stories will inspire you, bring out the best in you, make you feel a part of their journey and, above all, give you hope to live the best version of YOU.

‘Becoming’ chronicles the experiences that have shaped her. The readers are welcome into her world with unnerving honesty and animated wit.

Michelle - the girl

What happens when a young South Side Chicago girl battles the odds of being the one of ‘color’ and pushes ahead? The outcome is one of that will lead the reader to be in awe of Michelle Robinson, who later became
Michelle Obama.

Right from a young age, Michelle was taught a sense of self-confidence and belief in making her own decisions. This ultimately became the crux of her journey ahead.

Michelle - the ambitious girl

From working in the top firms of Chicago to charting her course through a series of non-profits, Michelle saw the world from a different perspective, her perspective. But she never let her ‘color’ of skin define who she was.

Her ways to manage her demanding work schedule coupled with being present for her daughters at all times, she has beautifully showcased the struggles that almost all working women go through.

Michelle - the FLOTUS

As the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama created the most comprehensive and welcoming White House in the history of its presidencies. While establishing herself as a powerful advocate of woman’s rights and the girls in the U.S., and around the globe, she dramatically changed the way families lead their lives, making them healthier and more active.

Standing with her husband, Barack Obama, as he led the U.S. through the most harrowing moments, she has shown us that there is a silver lining behind every cloud.

Their journey together comes as the assimilation of ideas, passion, the grit to do the right thing and just being focused on whatever you believe. From dealing with the nuances of having a public life to politics to being a highly ambitious career-oriented woman to raising two amazing daughters and all the work that goes on, there is something for everyone to take back from this book.

‘Becoming’ touches you and helps you to reason your aspirations, drives you to achieve what you thought was impossible and helps you get a perspective of the immense opportunities that lie ahead.

My key takeaways-
• Every journey has its difficulties. It is up to you to make the best of the situation in front of you.
• You can be anything you want to be, only if you have the grit to achieve it.
• No journey is complete without the support of your friends, family and close associates. These are the people who get you going even in the toughest times.

This memoir showcases all these emotions and much more.

Warm, wise and visionary, Becoming is a passionate account of a woman of depth and substance; one who has defied all expectations and deftly risen beyond those expectations.

A story that inspires us to do the same.
