Inhaltsangabe

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Becoming by Michelle Obama.

Winner of the Grammy's Best Spoken Word Album 2020.

Winner of the 2020 Audie Award for Autobiography/Memoir.

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States.

In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America - the first African American to serve in that role - she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the United States and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. 

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations - and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Kritikerstimmen

"A polished pearl of a memoir." (New York Times)

"A rich, entertaining and candid memoir. And overall Obama's a fun person to sit alongside as she tells you the story of her life...it is as beautifully written as any piece of fiction." (i)

"I found myself lifting my jaw from my chest at the end of every other chapter...this was not the Obama I thought I knew. She was more." (Independent)

Thank you Michelle for your brilliant Masterpiece

I listened while laughing, crying and learning so much about America, the black history, the politics and even more about excellence, thriving, deciding and BECOMING! I‘m deeply touched and moved by your book, your life and YOU! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story with me, with the world. Lots of love from Switzerland, Ronja

Cecilia

Drei Tage lang habe ich Michelle Obama zugehört und ich bin begeistert, von der Art und Weise wie sie uns Ihre Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen schildert, von den intimen Einblicken in das Leben im Weißen Haus, ihren Betrachtungen, ihre offene Art von ihrer Familie zu erzählen und ihre wunderbare Stimme. Danke, First Lady❤️

If you only read one book in your life, let it be this.

Michelle is a graceful, humble, passionate and thoroughly kind human and I wish this book was mandatory at schools everywhere. Give people time off work to read it. Pass it out on the street. Be more like her! Love! Care!

African Americans

Jede Person die das Thema in der Schule hat sollte auch dieses Buch lesen - ob auf Deutsch oder Englisch. Es beschreibt die heutige Gesellschaft aus Sicht einer wirklichen First Lady wieder und gibt zudem Eindrücke in das Leben im Weißen Haus.

Interesting but underwhelming

Having heard of this book through the media, and seen it in the hands of many friends, I was excited to hear what Michelle Obama had to say about her own life story. Unfortunately, the book did not meet expectations. While Obama's life has certainly been extraordinary, I was left feeling underwhelmed by her book. In my opinion, she has failed to capture the sense of urgency I would expect her message to convey.
