While the exact terms of the book deal have not been publicly revealed, multiple reports said Penguin Random House paid more than $60 million to acquire rights to one book each written by Michelle and Barack Obama. "What I learnt about myself was my happiness was up to me". "He had that stride".

Many witnessed the celebrity of being Mrs. Obama over the past decade, however, the book delves deeper into childhood impressions & influences, family & education, mentors & role models, plus how she handled various adverse situations.

In "Becoming", Obama shares such deeply personal revelations as suffering a miscarriage and sharply criticizes President Donald Trump for promoting the false "birther" rumor that Barack Obama was not a us citizen.

"Barack and I shook the young man's hand, snapped a few pictures, and gave our daughter a hug before sending them on their way", she writes.

She told the crowd she turned to her husband, who had just become a former president, and said: "That was so hard, what we just did".

She explained why she couldn't go with her husband to a prayer vigil two days after the tragedy.

"Has (Melania Trump) reached out?" asked US TV host Robin Roberts during a recent sit-down interview with Michelle Obama.

On November 11, the 54-year-old appeared on ABC News special with Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts, where she opened up on feeling "lost and alone" after suffering a miscarriage almost 20 years ago. Realizing it, I made my own optic adjustment: "I stopped even trying to smile".

"My worries about high school, if they were to be cataloged, could mostly be filed under one general heading: Am I good enough?"

USA media say the former first lady made the criticism in her memoir that will hit stores this week.

Obama spoke to Roberts in a live interview in Chicago on the day her memoir, "Becoming," was released. "'Would you tell him about himself?!' And lo and behold, counseling [sic] wasn't that at all", she said. "I think it's the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work and how they don't work".

"You mean there are ideal pianos out there", she said.

She also takes a swipe at Trump's campaign launch in June 2015 in which he branded Mexican immigrants as "criminals" and "rapists", setting the tone for his divisive campaign and presidency.

"No", said Mrs Obama.

Obama stayed to watch the girls perform the dance routine they had been rehearsing prior to the surprise visit.
