It was such an honour sitting down with Michelle Obama to chat about her new book Becoming, where she has bared her soul and shared her life in incredible detail. Writing WEconomy was one of the most difficult but most rewarding things I have done and that’s why I started the Meet the Author” series as really wanted to know more about other author's journeys and what inspired them to write their books.
Michelle really is the most phenomenal storyteller and from the very first chapter I felt like I was there with her living her life story, especially as I was listening on audiobook with Michelle’s voice recounting the details. It was so enthralling and staggeringly honest. I'm not the only one who has loved it - Becoming has taken the title of 2018's best seller - selling over 2 million copies in the US in just two weeks.
During our interview Michelle was happy to discuss everything. From revealing what she really thinks of politics, building and sustaining a strong marriage, her struggles to get pregnant and going through IVF, the impact that politics had on her family and how her upbringing and parents shaped her life growing up

I loved your book from page 1. I struggled to put it down because I really wanted to get to know you. It is a graceful insight and a love story. Inspiring on so many levels. Thank you Michelle for learning and teaching and growing and passing your torch of knowledge on to young readers today. I love the poetic way you describe your journey and your loves. Best wishes in your future. I'm a fan.

WTF!? Isn't that kind of hypocratic? She speaks about the american school system and why it is shitty which is a fair point. On the other hand she was in the White House for 8 Years! Why hasn't she done anything about it? She was in the position to make something about it or at least influence her husband. She could have said: "Oh Barack, I think the school system is pretty shitty and should get an update to current standards of knowledge. It is very important to me to change our education system. Let's do something about that!" Am I missing something obvious? What happened here?

Michelle, maybe you will read this or not. First of all you’re a very intelligent wise woman. I like the way you analyze and put things in perspective. But the most I admire of you, is how you deal with you’re “controlefreak” behavior. A lot of women I know are controlefreaks, and their partner are the one who have to adjust the most. For free spirit people, like you’re husband, it’s very hard to deal with this daily control. “Don’t throw you’re socks on the floor, put the jar where it belongs,” bla bla bla, the daily nagging stuff most women intent to do. They getting very frustrated when things are not in the right place, I saw it with my mother, sister and female colleagues. You’re one of those women’s, that’s the reason why you attracted to free spirited people, first Suzanne and than Barak, ‘cause they balans you. They remind you what’s really important in life and “guide” you through life. You’re one of those rare women’s who can give their partner space to breathe, that’s extremely difficult to do for controlefreaks. But you seems able too do that, not because you’re so intelligent but you can put yourself in somebody’s else position. You’re an analyst. Now the “bad” part. I find your book extremely boring. And I’m sorry to tell you, but if you wasn’t related to Barak Obama, you’re book would never be international. The most part is about schools, work and career. I know that was you’re biggest target, to become someone. But it’s not intriguing enough to read it. At least for me. Now you’re husband that’s another story, that’s a very intriguing person. How he became president. From nothing with no money to President at that young age it’s remarkable. As you told in you’re book he was already a personality you couldn’t overlook. Several times he made it to the newspapers before he even became a well known person. With other words his life story is very interesting and intriguing, ‘cause he’s not a average man, he’s special. That’s why I’m so surprised that there isn’t a movie about his life yet. Or maybe there is, but I don’t know about it, my world is extremely small. You said when you first drove with him in his yellow car shaking around while pulling up and with a hole in the carrosserie, looking at the asphalt of the highway, life wouldn’t be ever boring with this man. And that’s the definition of special people, they are never boring, never predictable and full of surprises. But as you know behind any successful man stands a strong woman. And in this case her name is Michelle Robinson.

I am reading her book right now, what is surprising is that her raise has a lot to do with the famous Jesse Jackson, since she and her high school best friend was his eldest child! So here they go, working class kid with the kid of a politician ready to run for president, and getting stuck on political rallies not by her choice but by happenstance, thus preparing her for a future that she has no idea was to come. This really says a lot about how you need trailblazers to open up a road for you to follow, I had never known that the work of Jesse Jackson end up producing a future first lady.

I think I need a mentor and just step outside to see everything from a different perspective.

I don't know Joe Biden worked next to them for 8 years and said they have one track minds and can't can't thing of two things at once and are no way as smart as the Spanish.One question Mike i just finished reading Saul Alinsky's book Rules for radicals you know the one your husband swears by? One problem with that book it says once Joe turns our Country over to the Japanese the first thing they do is lock up all the black people and take the rich black people's money.EVERY Country in the world does this after a Couple.So it's like your digging your own graves right Mike? The ONLY Country in the world that embrace's , loves black people is America,so why do u think you's will do better under a Socialist rule?

Things we should talk more about, and I completely agree with her: 1. How children should be heard, and respected as autonomous beings. 2. How making big decisions in life takes time. It's ok, at your twenties, not to not know exactly what to do with your life. 3. Marriages are tough. Are made of constant trials, ups and downs.

you know, after the conquest, alexander the great had accumulated so much that he couldn't help himself but turn paranoid. he started doing hectic stuff, suspecting his friends, as you do when you become doubtful over your subjects loyalty. actually, killed the guy who saved his life over an argument and had difficulty recovering. i mean, i have already been through 2500 years of development since, so i wouldn't repeat the same mistakes, evolution favors greater intelligence, apparently and fortunately. just thought i would share an authors perspective

valerie jarret did divorce her husband, but he was a director at jackson hospital and was son of a well known socialite in chicago. he was no bum no absent father so she was not the traditional single parent like michelle wants you to believe. in an interview michelle herself said she was a single parent. whats up with the single parent quest, and strong independent woman thing?

I put you with the American Dream as a democrat or republican less expenses such as unneeded transactions and run down neighborhoods but figure out a way to drive cars affordable manufactured and fuel. The middle class has a chance. I will be waiting for all of you, peddle these hard times and turn on your television and go far away from human trouble. Our rights should be written in stone establish for every American. One thing be entitled to sanity by dibbling in health care in the market for us. Inherit lawful reward through timing in what you believe and we will not exclude investing our time with those who work and that is with ones completing their lives with scholarship and possibly loans. A job is a way to a wealth and corporation in The United States of America. Is us talking right now unusual? Yes, and I think that's the key to remembering each other and being confident from daily routines. I want to see you have fun and not birthing error but mastery of clay forming something personal with the election of a President.
