Publisher's Synopsis

THE #1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Her life. Her learnings. Her toolkit to live boldly.

How do we build enduring and honest relationships?
What tools do we use to address feelings of self-doubt?
What do we do when it all starts to feel like too much?

In her bestselling follow-up to the worldwide phenomenon Becoming, Michelle Obama shares practical wisdom and insightful reflections to help us consider the important questions that many of us wrestle with.

Drawing from her experiences as a mother, daughter, spouse, friend, and First Lady, she explores how we find inner strength; create and deepen relationships with others; and better protect and strengthen ourselves. In doing so, she shares the tools, habits and principles that she has developed to successfully adapt to change, like "starting kind", "going high", and assembling a "kitchen table" of trusted friends and mentors.

With trademark humour, candour, and compassion, and a powerful blend of fresh stories and profound advice, The Light We Carry will inspire readers to identify their sources of gladness, connect meaningfully, and remain hopeful and balanced in a turbulent world.
