Becoming (Michelle Obama) - Crown Publishing Group - 2018 - 426 pages

This is an excellent autobiography by Ms. Obama.  The author generously and articulately guides the reader from her childhood in the south side of Chicago, through her educational and professional career, to become the First Lady of the United States in a partnership with President Barack Obama from January 2009 to January 2017.  This is an important historical document that fills gaps that are rarely seen in the political world.  I defy anyone (except Donald Trump) to read this book without gaining an appreciation of the integrity and talent of this wonderful person.  If you read one book about 21st century politics, this should be the one.
