"Liza Mundy's sane and realistic biography of Michelle Obama implicitly acknowledges the new, more serious status of a presidential spouse." —Amy Wilentz, The Washington Post

"Liza Mundy describes these sessions in her new book, Michelle: A Biography — an enormously valuable source for the context of Michelle's life." —Charlotte Hays, The Weekly Standard
"Liza Mundy, who covers politics for The Washington Post, describes in her timely and informative biography a complicated, often-ambivalent, and always independent woman who is quite different from her husband." —Chuck Leddy, The Boston Globe
"Mundy lays out a clear and convincing story of a little girl from a hardworking black family who becomes wife and partner to a man poised to be president. Mundy deals with the overfamiliarity of the story by filling in the blanks of Michelle's life."
