Whether you’re a fan of our current President or not, you have to admit that his wife, Michelle, seems so unflustered. And I’m sure that you wish that you could remain as calm, cool, collected and well-dressed all of the time (at least in public.) That’s what, What Would Michelle Do? A Modern Day Guide to Living with Substance and Style by Allison Samuels is all about.
There are sections on gaining confidence, how to stand out from a crowd, using what you have to make your dreams come true, and how to connect with people — all written using actual examples from Michelle Obama’s life. Also included are tips on how to live a balanced life (the juggling act between having a career, enjoying your life, raising well-balanced children and keeping your marriage happy), as well as fashion and beauty tips (plus a workout that doesn’t require a gym).
What Would Michelle Do? is a rare combination of a motivational manual, an inspirational handbook and a style guide. If you want to improve your life while avoiding schmaltzy self-help lingo, then this is the book for you. It’s well-organized, and clearly written.
What Would Michelle Do? A Modern Day Guide to Living with Substance and Style by Allison Samuels is published by Gotham Books, an imprint of Penguin Group USA. It is available tomorrow, April 19, 2012 at booksellers everywhere.
