The content of this book is quotations from Michelle Obama's public speeches and interviews. It's short and easy to read, while we learn more about the First Lady's political philosophy and beliefs. She is a strong woman who believes in the power of each person to make a difference in the community, nation and world.

Not difficult to get through at all but it really lets you hear how she feels about various issues. I really saw her in a different light.

This is a book I read through on a first setting. Since then, I have kept it handy. I find myself picking it up quite frequently, whenever the urge overcomes me to assure myself that not all people in my native country, or elsewhere in the world, are selfish, willfully ignorant, enraged and hate-filled. First Lady Michelle Obama's own words in print serve to remind me that no matter what the circumstance or accident of birth that brought me here, to the United States of America, at this time and to this place, I am a most fortunate individual. The First Lady's words reveal what she is, exactly as she is, which is human. We have that in common, she and I. There is no pretense, no made-up-for-the-public image about this woman. She is the real thing: joyful, funny, wise, extraordinary! Michelle Obama in her Own Words is a book I will buy over and over again to give as gifts, not only for the girls and women I love, but also for the boys and men I care deeply about.

Format: Paperback
Michelle Obama is a real woman. She is honest in her remarks, passionate about her family and outspoken in her beliefs. This book is a collection of quotes by Michelle Obama arranged by subject. Readers are able to understand Michelle's views on a variety of topics: balancing career and family; her childhood; fashion sense; Barack's safety; the `elitist' tag; role of the 1st lady and her critics.

Rogak has taken the time to comb through numerous speeches, newspapers, articles and magazines to compile this unique collection. Michelle Obama's words will encourage motivate and inspire women. They will also give you a glimpse into how Michelle thinks. Michelle is a great role model and this book will definitely inspire.

One of the greatest deceitful women in all of history. And I can't believe there are enough stupid women in America who can't see through her. At least with Hillary Clinton, you get what you see.... an evil, self serving narcissist. For the first time in my life (dating back to JFK), I have never witnessed a First Lady who did not carry herself with distinction and grace, and one who dresses so inappropriately for her role as First Lady. Absolutely shameful what she and her husband have done to this country!

The book contains quotes of our first lady. I expected something different but after getting over my surprise it was ok. The author just collected quotes on different topics. And this is how the book is organized: Headline and then quotes on a topic, next headline and so on..
Some of the quotes are funny, some are touching, some are smart, and some are plain boring like nothing else could be found to be printed. It is ok to get an impression but don't expect a biogaphy!

Format: Paperback
Michelle Obama's book about her viewpoints and background values give us an honest and heartfelt look into what makes her the first African-American woman to be First Lady.
She is down-to-Earth and unpretentious. She is both fun and nurturing. She is an expert career woman and a marvelous homemaker. Her expressions give all of us something to
aspire toward.
