At a glance

  • Writing for the Daily Mail, Maureen Callahan told readers that Michelle Obama’s new book, The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times is “nearly 300 pages of lighter-than-air-advice, full of clichés.”
  • Callahan called the “tools” Obama offers in her book “so obvious they’re insulting.”
  • Callahan wrote that women, “are deserving of much higher, more complicated and intelligent discourses, not the equivalent of ‘Live, Laugh, Love’ pillows on sale at HomeGoods.”
  • Noting that the Obamas have an estimated net worth of more than $70 million, Callahan wrote, “The young Michelle Obama, the one who grew up struggling on the Southside of Chicago, is long gone. The Michelle Obama of today is an out-of-touch hypocrite, and what’s not in this book is way more interesting than what is.”
