I received the book in a timely manner. Picking up the book was quick and courteous.
I really did not examine the book until I was going to the Becoming event. It seems to be the removal of a label fug into the cover the the book. This was the only negative of the purchase.
What could I possibly say about this phenomenal memoir that hasn’t already been said thousands of times? I cried. I laughed. I learned. My hope was renewed. I sympathized. I empathized with her disillusionment with the practice of law. I related to her as a woman trying to balance practicing law with being a present wife and mother. I was moved. I became a better person for having read this book. Whether you share her political leanings or not, you’re likely to find that this book is spectacular.
“Let’s invite one another in. Maybe then we can begin to fear less; to make fewer wrong assumptions; to let go of the biases and stereotypes that unnecessarily divide us. Maybe we can better embrace the ways we are the same. It’s not about being perfect. It’s not about where you get yourself in the end. There’s power in allowing yourself to be known and heard; in owning your unique story; in using your authentic voice; and there’s grace in being willing to know and hear others. This, for me, is how we become.” – Michelle Obama, “Becoming”
