Many see Michelle Obama as the former president Barack Obamas wife and the first lady of america, but she is much more than just that. If you do not believe me you should read this book written by Michelle Obama herself. After reading this book you might think to yourself:

“Him Barack Obama isn’t that him that is married to the charismatic and inspiring Michelle Obama?”

Maybe that thought is a little far fetched, but i hope you get the point. It is a very good book that totally changes your view of Michelle Obama and her influence. You can listen to the book for free as an audiobook on Audible.

The History of Michelle Obama

Many books have been written about Michelle Obama, but this is the first one she has written herself where she tells her story with her own words.

It is not just the history about her, but a book with many reflections and thoughts about the world we live in and how we live our lives. It is a book about a woman and what she has achieved in live (and that is a lot) and how she has achieved it. You sense her humor, her bright mind and her empathy throughout the book.
