Reviews

"A serious work of candid reflection by a singular figure of early-twenty-first-century America . . . Becoming is refined and forthright, gracefully written and at times laugh-out-loud funny."--Isabel Wilkerson, The New York Times Book Review

"Becoming is inspirational without trying to be. From the first words, the very warmth that permeates its author emanates from the pages. . . . Becoming manages to be a coming-of-age tale, a love story and a family saga all in one. More importantly, this book is a reminder that America is still a work-in-progress, and that hope can be an action word if we allow it to be. Becoming is a balm that America needs, from a woman America does not yet deserve."--Angie Thomas, Time "Deeply personal and refreshingly honest . . . She's thoughtful, humorous, bracingly revealing, and when it's time, she does us all the favor of showing us the human side of a man worshipped by so many. . . . It's human and genuine and welcoming to see the layers of humanity she holds open. . . . Michelle Obama's story can maybe inspire you to find a path for your own story."--Shonda Rhimes, Shondaland "A complex, accomplished life recounted with confidence and candor . . . Every page sparkles with directness and grace."--Douglas Brinkley, The Boston Globe
