Publisher's Summary

The inspirational wisdom of Oprah Winfrey, collected for the first time in a beautiful book. After film critic Gene Siskel asked her, 'What do you know for sure?' Oprah Winfrey began writing the 'What I Know For Sure' column in O, The Oprah Magazine. Saying that the question offered her a way to take 'stock of her life', Oprah has penned one column a month over the last 14 years, years in which she retired The Oprah Winfrey Show (the highest-rated program of its kind in history), launched her own television network, became America's only black billionaire, was awarded an honorary degree from Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, watched friends and colleagues come and go, lost beloved pets and adopted new ones, and celebrated milestone birthdays. Throughout it all, she's continued to offer her profound and inspiring words of wisdom in her 'What I Know For Sure' column in O, The Oprah Magazine. Now, for the first time, these thoughtful gems have been revised, updated, and collected in What I Know For Sure, a beautiful book packed with insight and revelation from Oprah Winfrey. Organized by theme - joy, resilience, connection, gratitude, possibility, awe, clarity, and power - these essays offer a rare and powerful glimpse into the mind of one of the world's most extraordinary women. Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and dynamic, the words Oprah shares in What I Know For Sure shimmer with the sort of wisdom and truth that listeners will turn to again and again.

Insight into the making of Oprah

With Oprah herself as the narrator you gain the true interpretation from the writer herself. This book has some great "ah ha!" Moments as Oprah would say so herself.

Oprah = true greatness

When I first listened to this book it seemed "light on" but I've since realised, this was due to my own limited perspective + I think Oprah wanted to make sure this book would be understood and received by a wider audience.

After growing more spiritually, I now appreciate the depth, greatness and truth behind each lesson Oprah shares.

I recently attended one of Oprah's event and it was life changing. Oprah truly is one of the most remarkable human beings to walk this earth.

I hope Oprah one day writes a more in-depth book about her life, and the lessons she has learnt as she has so much wisdom to share & the world needs more of her!

what I know for sure

Well I know for sure that Oprah sure knows a thing or two about being true to who you are and walking in your complete self. Worth a read and a good standby in your book collection. Listen on audio, even better.

Beautifully written

A wonderful book based on Oprah's experience narrated in her wonderfully hypnotic, relaxing and familiar voice. She shares her lessons learned in life and business that you can take and impart in your life. Very easy to listen to with wonderful messages that resonate. I will be listening again and again.

Just a collection of thoughts

I was looking for something more, but it’s really the same old collection of spiritual thoughts from someone that is a little bit removed from the real world.

You won’t find anything in this that you haven’t already heard in any other business or self help book.

Oprah does a great job of reading it, and I can’t fault her performance. It is still engaging, it’s just that I found the content lacking.

Listening to Oprah soothes the soul

Inspiring, uplifting, and exceptionally helpful in guiding you through life challenges. Whenever I felt I needed some food for thought or just a nudge forward when I was feeling wayward, I put my earphones in and listened to Oprah narrating this audiobook which never failed to lift my spirit.
