Review of: Becoming


By Michelle Obama

This was a lovely story of a woman grown from a loving home and community, driven to find success and then meaning, and who has made a huge and wonderful impact on the world. Not insulated from the world, like the Kennedys, but also from Chicago, I could see how Michelle Obama could lead her family (and the rest of us) into a new golden age of dedication to the future, county, and a better world.

She reflects on her life without rose colored glasses, or the water light of sentimentality, but in true clear light. She has the ability to eloquently distill emotions, facts, and the larger picture of a moment into a lovely bundle, that allows us to be at that time with her.
