Becoming $20 poorer...

Somebody -- Michelle, her agents, publishers, media in general -- are laughing at this nation's suckers and flipping gleefully through piles of cash, having smartly identified and exploited America's platitudinous and infantile "empowerment" culture. Thus, this low-effort money grab.

My mom wanted this "book" for Christmas and after I looked at it at the bookstore I persuaded her that she didn't want it. She enjoyed Michelle's bio from last year and had expected, I suspect,

Thoroughly enjoying this guided journal experience. Each poses a different question in an effort to help you identify your voice. How important is this book for today's world where too often people speak someone's opinion as their own without understanding how their thought has been formulated and cultivated within the larger context of society and acceptance.

Lol I haven't even gotten this book back home yet. I'm on the bus writing this review as I've only just bought this book and I'm already in love with it.
Saw it on the Ellen show this week and was chuffed my local Tesco had it in stock.
Really helpful guide and journal for people like me who find writing and keeping a diary difficult and intrusive to a certain extent at times.

Would highly recommend this!

This book - like its author - is amazing. Michelle Obama is class personified!

One of the reasons I liked this so much is that I listened to the audio book, which she read. I miss these people!

I loved learning more about Michelle Obama's background and upbringing. I think she is an excellent writer. Her honesty and openness was very touching and very much appreciated. I would highly recommend this book to everyone no matter what political party they are affiliated with. She is a major part of our US history and an inspiration to many including myself.

This journal has really helped me heal from past trauma. I have tried journaling before but it was always difficult. The fact that this journal is guided really helps with the writing aspect... there are questions and different chapters which makes it easier to begin writing. If you get stuck you can come back to it later. I've really loved writing in it....

This book is an insight into an amazing woman.
It tells her story from childhood to forging her own career and falling in love with Barack and raising their two daughters in the Whitehouse.
This is an honest inspiring account of Michelle Obama's life which I would recommend.

Literally is was ok that's it you can see the book is very very crafted to read only what is of public knowledge. Disappointing to me anyway, Nothing new.
