There is no one quite like her. Michelle Obama. This is the first book to tell the astonishing story of a woman whose intellect, verbal flair, and poise are certain to make her one of the most influential First Ladies in history. A woman whose remark, “For the first time in my adult life I am really proud of my country,” did her husband's campaign no good. A woman whose impassioned speech to the Democratic National Convention may have helped win him the Oval Office. A woman touted as a future presidential candidate herself. Readers are given a revealing and intimate look at Michelle Obama's remarkable life—from her Chicago childhood to her education at Princeton and Harvard, from how she first met Barack Obama at the prestigious law firm where they were the only African-Americans, to her role as his closest adviser, and to her own political beliefs. For Michelle, family comes first, and—like so many women who struggle between family and career—she seriously weighed her husband's presidential ambitions before giving her stamp of approval. Apparently she struck a hard bargain: he had to give up smoking.

Michelle Obama was First Lady of the United States. She is also a lawyer, a wife and a mother. But that is not all. She has started many campaigns to help young people and make the world a better place. Michelle Obama has had an extraordinary life.
Thanks to mass marketing from deep pocketed progressives into 28 languages from a parent publishing firm from Germany, called Bertelsmann, which own's Crown, Michelle Obama's book, Becoming, is likely to enjoy the status and influence of the best selling memoir of all time--unless Barack’s A Promised Land, can beat it. Bertelsmann, which initially became rich from publishing for Hitler through exploiting Jewish slave labor, influences most of the Western world as a serpent which molted into the world’s biggest publishing company. Bertelsmann soon earned a reputation for meddling in global politics, accepted routine visits from heads of state, and made Barack and Michelle rich. Barack’s first lucrative contract came just before he entered office, making it perfectly legal, albeit unethical. The biggest contracts came after they left the White House. We can assume they got something in return for Germany and the EU other than book profits--like a deal to publish Common Core or an Obama push for the Paris Climate Agreement. It just doesn’t seem right to make all of that money off of public office, especially when you profess concern for income inequality and the plight of the poor. According to The Atlantic, Barack Obama leaked that Michelle’s publisher employed a ghostwriter for her life chronicles, and, of course, claimed that he will not. This becomes obvious with professional-level passages filled with clever use of verbs, adjectives, and descriptions more fitting for a practiced novelist than an attorney or hospital outreach director. It is not uncommon for celebrities to employ ghostwriters, but when the memoir is hyped as “in her own words,” then it becomes unsettling, even disgusting. This summary book is a most unusual and valuable book for understanding Michelle Obama, her origins, and her participation in a partisan plot, including an arranged marriage, with Barack Obama and his leftist, activist, and big-business backers, to capture the White
