This work has not been seriously reviewed as far as I know . The first half of the book is definitely autobiographical and a very interesting read . But ,like all those who are married to politicians and in this case to a president it inevitably becomes a recitation of political matters mainly involving Barack Obama's elections to the presidency . Considering that Michelle is a very intelligent woman some of this book is cringe making and trite to say the least . I skipped through the last parts of the book . Regrettably , because I like the Obama's ,I cannot recommend this book .
