If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. First Lady Michelle Obama, the direct descendant of slaves, now lives in a house that was built by slaves. This daughter of a nurturing if demanding family grew up on Chicago's South Side, where she developed discipline and diligence, two traits that carried her to Princeton and then Harvard Law School. She turned her back on wealth and prestige to follow her idealism into the public sector, where she was immediately successful. A young beauty with many suitors, she finally settled on a man named Barack Obama. Together they formed a formidable team that accomplished the seemingly impossible-electing the first African-American President of the United States. Her fascinating story is an inspiration to the world. It's the summer of 1860 on the Friendfield plantation in Georgetown, South Carolina-coastal low country whose snake- and mosquito-infested fields produce half of America's rice crop. A young African slave by the name of Jim Robinson is working in the rice fields. Owned by another man, Robinson has no freedom, no choices, no opportunities. It's hard to imagine his dreams include a vision of his great-great-granddaughter as First Lady of the United States, living in the White House, hosting state dinners, an inspiration to her own country, and one of the most admired women in the world. But it happened. Her name is Michelle Obama-and we can be sure that Jim Robinson would be as proud of his descendant as she is of him.

    This was a free kindle download for a short time, so I got it to read for a Presidents and President's wives reading challenge. It was interesting to learn that Michelle is the great great grandaughter of a field slave from South Carolina, and to learn a little about her upbringing and career. The only problem is that, I only learned a little about Michelle, as this e-book is really not much more that a long magazine article, culled from many other magazine articles listed as the sources in the This was a free kindle download for a short time, so I got it to read for a Presidents and President's wives reading challenge. It was interesting to learn that Michelle is the great great grandaughter of a field slave from South Carolina, and to learn a little about her upbringing and career. The only problem is that, I only learned a little about Michelle, as this e-book is really not much more that a long magazine article, culled from many other magazine articles listed as the sources in the back of the book. So while it was interesting, I am glad that I got my copy for free download, as I would have felt ripped off had I paid the $2.99 regular price for what I received. And I don't think I will be investing the $2.99 for any of the other New World City "Profiles of Great Leaders" e-books, if this is all they include.

    Michelle Obama is a wonderful role model and inspirational leader. This short ebook is packed with valuable information about how she grew up, her college years and changes in her career. Now that she is the 1st lady, the sky is the limit. How Michelle Obama Leads will give readers background on the first lady without spending extended time to read it. Short but Intriguing.

    Just a short essay about Michelle Obama and her background. Poorly researched, but good information for such a short read.
