Michelle Obama: A Life

We rated this book:


Not since Lincoln has so much acrimony been directed at the office of the president of the United States. It is clear that the racial divide that was evident in 1860 is still with us in 2015. Through the insults directed at her and her family, Michelle Obama has been a temperate statesman and role model of composure. Her brilliance is unquestioned, but her intelligence is not her leading trait. This is a woman known for her warmth and accessibility. This is a very readable and interesting biography of a woman so very accomplished, yet so wise that she puts her family and responsibility above everything else. She could be commander in chief: a graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law School and law firm mentor to the future president, Michelle Obama is a powerhouse. Southside Chicago is not the optimum place to generate such a person, yet Michelle Obama succeeded in everything she attempted. Clearly not interested in the money, she left a promising law firm career to work in the community. While her husband entered politics, she was left with family responsibilities like so many women do for their husband’s career. This is a book you will want to read and a person you will like to know better.
