The writing in this book is garbage. Sounds like an adult trying to appeal to teenagers with humor, and we know how well that always works.

I have never before had a role model or a true inspiration until Michelle Obama hit the scene running. Her intelligence, her poise, her ability to remain graceful under fire, her healthy habits, her great sense of fashion, her skin color---I just LOVE her!
I really enjoyed the beautiful pictures in this book along with the anecdotes and tid bits about her life. I would definitely recommend this book to Michelle Obama fans. Some of my favorite photographs from the book were page 97, 137, & 144

This book was a wonderful combination of biography and photos highlighting Michelle Obama and the Obama family. I really liked that the book had candid shots of the Obama family as well as rare never before seen photos from Michelle's childhood including her prom picture. It was an enjoyable and inspiring read which shows readers that by being driven and persistent, anyone can achieve their goals.

Wonderful photos in this book, which also gives some biographical information about the first lady, her past and her present. I visit a nursing home resident who invariably smiles very broadly when I bring in newspaper, magazine, or book photos of Mrs. Obama; I'm looking forward to sharing this one with her.
