On Becoming Michelle

The road to self-discovery has led Michelle Obama from the tough Chicago streets to the storied halls of Princeton and on to the White House, where she emerged as one of the most elegant and accomplished first ladies ever. In her new memoir, she explains why she won’t run for president but will stay committed to public service, her family and—luckily for us—being a role model we can bank on.
