    A fabulous book!

    I thought this book was fabulous! It gave you such an insight into the Obama's family and professional life. It is refreshing to see a political couple with such down to earth mannerism and outlook. A lot of political couples have a public life but no private life. They appear stiff and "phony" when interacting with each other. I would recommend this book highly to all who appreciate the importance of family stablity and relationships in everyday living. A career can be short lived, but a family is for life!

    CAPTIVATING! A SPLENDID, POSITIVE BOOK ABOUT A FASCINATING COUPLE

    From the opening pages--when Christopher Andersen describes the chilling moment when Barack and Michelle Obama had to face the fact that their infant daughter Sasha had been stricken with meningitis--to the inside details about the First Family's life in the White House today, BARACK AND MICHELLE kept me mesmerized. Anyone who admires the Obamas (and certainly anyone who voted for Barack!)will love it as much as I did--especially the account of their very different upbringings, their courtship and marriage, the problems they faced and overcame in their marriage, how they parent Malia and Sasha, and the important role Michelle has always played in the President's decision-making. I'm giving BARACK AND MICHELLE to everyone for Christmas.
