Her memoir became an instant best-seller when it was released in 2018, selling 3.4 million copies in less than two months and consequently knocking out competition like "Fire and Fury" by Michael Wolff and Bill Clinton and James Patterson's "The President Is Missing". Bought by Penguin Random House in a two-book deal with former President Barack Obama’s memoir, the Obamas earned a record-shattering $65 million for the books. In the book, Michelle writes eloquently about her mission to make a difference in the lives of girls and women around the world while creating a welcoming and inclusive White House alongside her husband. She also chronicles her experiences as a mother, lawyer and African-American woman.

The former First Lady's greatest accomplishments
As one of the most iconic women of our era, Michelle Obama has accomplished a number of incredible feats. In addition to being the only First Lady in American history to hold two Ivy League degrees, Michelle went on to create educational programmes for children across the nation in her "Reach Higher" initiative, which gave students the tools and support they needed to pursue higher-level education. One of her most famous initiatives, the "Let's Move!" programme, launched in 2010 and made huge strides in the effort to reduce child obesity in the United States. Through the initiative she was able to increase the availability of healthy food to low-income children, garner the support of grocers to expand their stores in communities with little access to healthy food, and implement criteria for physical education in thousands of childcare organisations across the country. During her time in the White House Michelle's approval rating stayed consistently high, at around 70 per cent. The positive effects of her efforts continue to be seen in the USA today and she serves as an inspiration to people all over the world.
