Becoming by Michelle Obama
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Disclaimer: I grew up and taught for a decade in Chicago. I'm very familiar with the neighbor that Michelle grew up and attended school. I could visualized the city as she wrote about her youth.
Now to the good part, the real merit of this book is the inside view of a woman who tried to maintain a career and raise two children while her husband's political career advanced.
She knew how to reinvent herself using the tools of her education. She prioritized her life around her children and husband.
Her intimate view of what it is like to live in the White House is the golden part of the book. It is a woman's book, written for women, by a candid woman.
