Publisher's Summary

Oprah Winfrey is one of a kind. When we hear her name, we're likely to think immediately of her incredibly famous talk show, which ran for an amazing 25 seasons, from 1986 to 2011. However, she's certainly much more than an entertainer, and the success she's seen in all areas of her life is a testament to that.

Oprah grew up in a less than ideal environment but was able not only to overcome her hardships but also to turn them into inspiration for her future. From the early start of her talk show to her ever-growing career in writing, film, and television, Oprah always showed an innate ability to turn her reality into a way to help others, channeling her experiences into various forms of self-expression.

How much do we know about the woman behind the famous name? In this book we'll attempt to get a closer look at the life of one of the world's biggest stars and how she made it all happen.

How did she overcome extreme poverty and turn her life into a financial success story? Learn from her strategies, and create your own financial victories.

So, are you ready to learn from Oprah Winfrey's life? Are you interested in learning about overcoming hardships and achieving goals?

Very Good Book. I recommend it.

I confess I'm an Oprah fan and read almost everything about her. This book has nothing new but is very concise and explains Oprah''s complicated life in a very lively manner. Very entertaining. If you are to read only one book about Oprah, this a good choice

I didn't realize this wasn't written by Oprah

What would have made Oprah Winfrey: A Rags to Riches Story better?

No-one....they can watch Oprah herself rather than listen to someone else's ideas. I didn't realize this wasn't written by Oprah

Would you ever listen to anything by Austin Brooks again?

Not honest advertising. No it's a very misleading cover. IT IS NOT WRITTEN BY OPRAH!

Would you be willing to try another one of Adrienne Ellis’s performances?

Not honest advertising. No it's a very misleading cover. IT IS NOT WRITTEN BY OPRAH!

What character would you cut from Oprah Winfrey: A Rags to Riches Story?

This question needs updating - there are no CHARACTERS in the book

Any additional comments?

DISAPPOINTED........ IT IS NOT WRITTEN BY OPRAH yet they feel the need to use her photo. Not honest advertising.

Terrible!!!

Do not waste your money, it read as a VERY short story and I would not be surprised if all the details were taken from magazine articles.

The narrator has the most irritating voice....so just as well it was such a short read listen.
