Raised on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, Obama is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School and spent her early legal career working at the law firm Sidley Austin, where she met her husband.

America´s number one citizen Ralph Nader´s latest book tells us how unchecked corporate power has led to the wrecking ball that is the Trump presidency. Nader brings together the outrages of the Trump administration with the key flaws and failures of the previous administrations - both Republican and Democratic - that have led our nation to its current precipice. It´s all in the details, and Ralph Nader knows them all. Trump didn´t come out of nowhere. Bush and Obama led the way. Writing as a Washington, D.C., activist and people´s advocate for over 50 years - someone who has saved more lives and caused more impactful legislation to be enacted than almost any sitting president or legislator - Nader tells us how Trump´s crimes and misdemeanors followed the path of no resistance of the Obama, Bush, and Clinton regimes, which ushered in the extreme rise of corporate power and the abandonment of the poor and middle classes. 1.

A collection of essays celebrating the influential former first lady, by an array of acclaimed contributors and with a foreword by Lena Dunham Michelle Obama´s legacy transcends categorization. Mrs. Obama was not only our first black first lady; she was President Obama´s equal partner in marriage and parenthood and a tireless advocate for women´s rights, education, healthy eating, and exercise. Her genre-busting personal style encouraged others to speak, to engage, even to dress as they wished. In an extension of his popular T, The New York Times Style Magazine feature, Nick Haramis has assembled 19 essays from prizewinning writers, Hollywood stars, and political leaders - all of whom have been moved and influenced by Mrs. Obama´s extraordinary example of grace in power. Here are original testimonials from Gloria Steinem, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Alice Waters, and Charlamagne tha God, among others. Presidential biographer Jon Meacham supplies historical perspective. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross suggests that Mrs. Obama ´´provided an antidote to all the false representations of black women that have inundated us for centuries.´´ Anna Wintour and designer Jason Wu celebrate the former first lady´s impact as an international fashion icon. Two ninth-grade girls - one in training to be a boxer - talk about how Mrs. Obama has emboldened them to be themselves. Here are some of the many facets of Michelle Obama as she continues to inspire us, a stirring reminder that the best of America once lived in the White House, embodied in one authentic, inclusive, and courageous woman. Read by the authors and a full cast of narrators: Lena Dunham Nick Haramis Alice Waters Janet Mock Issa Rae Charlamagne tha God Gloria Steinem Patton Oswalt Rashida Jones Jon Meacham Gabourey Sidibe 1.

Un íntimo, poderoso e inspirador libro de memorias de la ex primera dama de Estados Unidos Protagonista de una vida plena y exitosa, Michelle Obama se ha convertido en una de las mujeres más icónicas y cautivadoras de nuestra era. Como primera dama de los Estados Unidos de América, y primera afroamericana en desempeñar esa función, contribuyó a que la Casa Blanca alcanzara sus mayores cotas de apertura y pluralidad de la historia; se erigió en destacada defensora de las mujeres y las niñas en Estados Unidos y en el resto del mundo, introdujo cambios drásticos encaminados a promover una vida saludable y activa en las familias, y acompañó a su esposo cuando el país atravesaba algunos de los momentos más desgarradores de su historia. Por el camino nos enseñó pasos de baile, causó furor en Carpool Karaoke y consiguió criar a dos hijas con los pies en la tierra bajo el implacable escrutinio de los medios de comunicación. En sus memorias, profundamente reflexivas y cautivadoras, Michelle Obama invita al lector a entrar en su mundo relatando las experiencias que han forjado su carácter, desde su infancia en la zona sur de Chicago, hasta los años que vivió en la residencia más famosa del mundo, pasando por su etapa como alta directiva, durante la que tuvo que compaginar la maternidad con la vida profesional. Haciendo gala de una honestidad a toda prueba y de un ingenio vivaz, describe sus logros y decepciones tanto en la esfera pública como en la privada, y narra sin ambages la historia de su vida, con sus propias palabras y en sus propios términos. Cálido, lúcido y revelador, Becoming es un relato excepcionalmente íntimo de una mujer de gran moralidad y valía, que una vez y otra ha superado todas las expectativas y cuya historia nos inspira a seguir su ejemplo.
