An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States ´A genuine page-turner, full of intimacies and reflections ´ Evening Standard ´A polished pearl of a memoir´ New York Times ´A rich, entertaining and candid memoir. And overall Obama´s a fun person to sit alongside as she tells you the story of her life . . . it is as beautifully written as any piece of fiction´ i In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America - the first African-American to serve in that role - she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world´s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations - and whose story inspires us to do the same. ´Offers new insights into her upbringing on the south side of Chicago and the highs and lows of life with Barack Obama. . . a refreshing level of honesty about what politics really did to her. I have read Barack Obama´s two books so far, and this is like inserting a missing piece of reality into the narrative of his dizzying journey´ Guardian ´I found myself lifting my jaw from my chest at the end of every other chapter . . . this was not the Obama I thought I knew. She was more´ Independent ´An inspirational memoir that also rings true´ Daily Telegraph

Die kraftvolle und inspirierende Autobiografie der ehemaligen First Lady der USA Michelle Obama ist eine der überzeugendsten und beeindruckendsten Frauen der Gegenwart. Als erste afro-amerikanische First Lady der USA trug sie maßgeblich dazu bei, das gastfreundlichste und offenste Weiße Haus zu schaffen, das es je gab. Sie wurde zu einer energischen Fürsprecherin für die Rechte von Frauen und Mädchen in der ganzen Welt, setzte sich für einen dringend notwendigen gesellschaftlichen Wandel hin zu einem gesünderen und aktiveren Leben ein und stärkte außerdem ihrem Ehemann den Rücken, während dieser die USA durch einige der schmerzlichsten Momente des Landes führte. Ganz nebenbei zeigte sie uns noch ein paar lässige Dance-Moves, glänzte beim ?Carpool Karaoke? und schaffte es obendrein auch, zwei bodenständige Töchter zu erziehen ? mitten im gnadenlosen Blitzlichtgewitter der Medien. In diesem Buch erzählt sie nun erstmals ihre Geschichte ? in ihren eigenen Worten und auf ihre ganz eigene Art. Sie nimmt uns mit in ihre Welt und berichtet von all den Erfahrungen, die sie zu der starken Frau gemacht haben, die sie heute ist. Warmherzig, weise und unverblümt erzählt sie von ihrer Kindheit an der Chicagoer South Side, von den Jahren als Anwältin und leitende Angestellte, von der nicht immer einfachen Zeit als berufstätige Mutter sowie von ihrem Leben an Baracks Seite und dem Leben ihrer Familie im Weißen Haus. Gnadenlos ehrlich und voller Esprit schreibt sie sowohl über große Erfolge als auch über bittere Enttäuschungen, den privaten wie den öffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist mehr als eine Autobiografie. Es enthält die ungewöhnlich intimen Erinnerungen einer Frau mit Herz und Substanz, deren Geschichte uns zeigt, wie wichtig es ist, seiner eigenen Stimme zu folgen.

L’autobiografia intima e appassionante della First Lady degli Stati Uniti che ha ispirato il mondo. « Previsione facile facile: lo leggerete. Perché ´´Becoming´´ sarà il libro dell´autunno, e non solo in Italia: ovunque. » D - la Repubblica - Valeria Palermi « L?attesissimo memoir dell?ex first lady USA è già un fenomeno, ancora prima di essere in libreria. » IO Donna « Un libro evento atteso con la stessa trepidazione riservata alle rock star. » Donna Moderna - Cristina Sarto Con un inserto fotografico Quando era solo una bambina, per Michelle Robinson l’intero mondo era racchiuso nel South Side di Chicago, dove lei e il fratello Craig condividevano una cameretta nel piccolo appartamento di famiglia e giocavano a rincorrersi al parco. È stato qui che i suoi genitori, Fraser e Marian Robinson, le hanno insegnato a parlare con schiettezza e a non avere paura. Ma ben presto la vita l’ha portata molto lontano, dalle aule di Princeton, dove ha imparato per la prima volta cosa si prova a essere l’unica donna nera in una stanza, fino al grattacielo in cui ha lavorato come potente avvocato d’affari e dove, la mattina di un giorno d’estate; uno studente di giurisprudenza di nome Barack Obama è entrato nel suo ufficio sconvolgendole tutti i piani. In questo libro, per la prima volta, Michelle Obama descrive gli inizi del matrimonio, le difficoltà nel trovare un equilibrio tra la carriera, la famiglia e la rapida ascesa politica del marito. Ci confida le loro discussioni sull’opportunità di correre per la presidenza degli Stati Uniti, e racconta della popolarità vissuta – e delle critiche ricevute – durante la campagna elettorale. Con grazia, senso dell’umorismo e una sincerità non comune, Michelle Obama ci offre il vivido dietro le quinte di una famiglia balzata all’improvviso sotto i riflettori di tutto il mondo e degli otto anni decisivi trascorsi alla Casa Bianca, durante i quali lei ha conosciuto meglio il suo Paese, e il suo Paese ha conosciuto meglio lei. Becoming ci conduce in un viaggio dalle modeste cucine dell’Iowa alle sale da ballo di Buckingham Palace, tra momenti di indicibile dolore e prove di tenace resilienza, e ci svela l’animo di una donna unica e rivoluzionaria che lotta per vivere con autenticità; capace di mettere la sua forza e la sua voce al servizio di alti ideali. Nel raccontare con onestà e coraggio la sua storia, Michelle Obama lancia una sfida a tutti noi: chi siamo davvero e chi vogliamo diventare? Dalla prefazione : C’è ancora molto che non so dell’America; della vita, di quel che potrebbe riservarci il futuro. Ma conosco me stessa. Mio padre, Fraser, mi ha insegnato a lavorare sodo, ridere spesso e mantenere la parola data. Mia madre, Marian, mi ha mostrato come pensare con la mia testa e far sentire la mia voce. Insieme, nel piccolo appartamento nel South Side di Chicago, mi hanno aiutata a riconoscere il valore della nostra storia, della mia storia, all’interno di quella, più grande, del nostro Paese. Anche se non è bella o perfetta. Anche se è più dura di quanto vorresti che fosse. La tua storia è quello che hai, quello che avrai sempre. Non dimenticarla mai.
