I thoroughly enjoyed "Becoming". Michelle Obama tells her story, from her childhood on Chicago's southside to her college and working years, to her family's time in the White House. I especially enjoyed her stories about Barack's proposal, the White House petting zoo, and riding with Queen Elizabeth in a car. I appreciated learning more about the pitfalls and successes of the initiatives she undertook as First Lady. Overall, the book is a portrait of a resilient, strong , intelligent, compassionate woman who cares deeply about her family as well as doing good for society.
