Publisher's Summary

Based on three years of research and reporting, as well as 850 interviews with sources, many of whom have never before spoken for publication, Oprah is the first comprehensive biography of one of the most influential, powerful, and admired public figures of our time, by the most widely read biographer of our era.

Anyone who is a fan of Oprah Winfrey or who has followed her extraordinary life and career will be fascinated and newly informed by the closely observed, detailed, and well-rounded portrait of her provided by Kitty Kelley's exhaustively researched book. Listeners will come away with a greater appreciation of who Oprah really is beyond her public persona and a fuller understanding of her important place in American cultural history.

Another "tell-all????"

Only most of this book has already been told...and too much of it is unsubstantiated. Do you think it's possible for Oprah Winfrey to have built her Harpo empire without stepping on some toes, and making some enemies?? She's a shark and a smart and savy business woman!
Kitty Kelley is no dumbbell herself; she wrote another long, boring book, and although I should have known better, I paid for it! Be smart...keep your money!
