Publisher's Summary

An inspiring story of a modern American icon, here is the first comprehensive account of the life and times of Michelle Obama. With disciplined reporting and a storyteller's eye for revealing detail, Peter Slevin follows Michelle to the White House from her working-class childhood on Chicago's largely segregated South Side. He illuminates her tribulations at Princeton University and Harvard Law School during the racially charged 1980s and the dilemmas she faced in Chicago while building a high-powered career, raising a family, and helping a young community organizer named Barack Obama become president of the United States.
From the lessons she learned in Chicago to the messages she shares as one of the most recognizable women in the world, the story of this first lady is the story of America. Michelle Obama: A Life is a fresh and compelling view of a woman of unique achievement and purpose.

Inspiring life story

Having not known much about Michelle Obama, I never expected to be so inspired about her life story. I think Barack Obama is one lucky man! I think she should run for president in the future.

Disappointingly written but she's still an impressive woman

I was excited to listen to a biography ofone of my heroes. Michelle Obama is an impressive person who coped well with some incredible pressures as First Lady. Disappointingly, I found this book to be, often, a stringing- together of info and quotes rather than a coherent story. The narration was a little melodramatic and there were errors in pronunciation that should have been picked up.
