    Anyone who read this and actually believes she tends to her own garden must be a weak minded liberal. This is propaganda at best. I would respect it if she actually did what she preaches.

    I have loved looking at, engaging with, and reading this mid-winter and thinking ahead to spring. I'm wondering what modest steps our family could take toward growing a little of our food. More broadly, this book makes the appeal of really fresh food so evident--it's almost vivid enough to touch and taste! The history of the garden, going back to Jefferson, is well presented. And the case for access to quality food for everyone is compellingly made. Beautiful and inspiring book!

    To the sad, pathetic people who choose to review this book based on their warped right wing beliefs, I doubt you even read the book , or for that matter,can even read a book. Save your ignorant, uneducated reviews for books by Newt or Sarah. Bravo, to Mrs. Obama for this beautiful, informative book. Her class, intelligence, strength and dedication are inspiring.
  • Sad that having a sample book of this

    I do not believe for a minute that this book got so many great reviews. Michelle is always on vacation, talk shows, making speeches, campaigning, on the taxpayer's dime...now we are supposed to believe she tends a garden everyday and feeds all four in her family from it? I do not wish to be rude, so I will just say that Michelle does not have a feminine/woman's body, and Barrack's is certainly not manly/muscular...whatever regimen they are both on, I do not wish to follow nor look like.

    Just another way for the Obamas to campaign. They could have done a coloring book or connect the dots and done a better job.
