In is book she shares the experiences that shape her from her childhood in the south side of Chicago to her years as an executive to the time she went with Obama in the white house and divides the book into three part becoming me, becoming us and becoming more. The first part deals with Michelle early days through prince ton and Harvard law school. She's really senator to her career as a lawyer when she first met Barack Obama. That's like a really romantic part then she focuses on their romantic relationship and the beginning of her husband's political career ending on election night. That's the end of it.
