Summary, etc.:
"Michelle Obama is unlike any other First Lady in American History. From her first moments on the public stage, she has challenged traditional American notions about what it means to be beautiful, to be strong, to be fashion-conscious, to be healthy, to be First Mom, to be a caretaker and hostess, and to be partner to the most powerful man in the world. As Hillary Clinton has said, admiringly about Michelle Obama, our soon to be ex-First Lady exemplifies "the ideal concept of American womanhood." What is remarkable is that, at 52, she is just getting started. A rollicking, lively dinner-party conversation about race, class, marriage, creativity, womanhood, and what it means to be American today, [this book] offers a parting gift for a landmark moment in American history." -- Dust jacket.
