by Michelle Obama
An insightful book for many reasons! Michelle Obama is such an interesting person and, of course, this book tells her story. But it also gives a novel glimpse into the White House during the Obama administration. As one should expect in 21st century US politics, not everyone agrees. One recent review on Amazon says: "Poorly written, silly comments in bad taste, this is not a good book for a lady to read."
