This little book has become a Daily Devotional for me. Although I'm sure I have heard or read everything it says before, the way Oprah puts the personal perspective on it makes each section an epiphany for me. I always have lots to think about after reading it at night and honestly do try to apply what she has said to my own life. I love this book so much that I have actually ordered 3 more to give as gifts!

Having not watched very many episodes of the Oprah show and not having read the “O” magazine more than a few times I wasn’t too sure what to expect from Oprah’s latest book, “What I know for Sure”; however, being interested in this genre I thought I would give this book a try and see what insights I could glean from within.

Perhaps those that are more familiar with Oprah’s life, or her writing style, would expect the first pages to be written as they were - very much like a, “Day in the life of…” - and this led me to think that “What I know for Sure” was just going to be a tale of slumber parties and somber moments. Thankfully I read on though because there are some very interesting and insightful thoughts shared on the later pages.

Oprah openly shares some of the major challenges she has faced, some of the wonderful people she has met on the journey and the some of the inner ‘A-ha’ moments – the real gift that this book provides to the reader. While I understand that some readers will enjoy hearing about the other people in Oprah’s life, Oprah’s introspective moments are what resonate with me.

During these times of introspection and discovery Oprah comes face to face with universal truths that include: how our challenges often create our best opportunities, ‘Anything can be a miracle, a blessing, an opportunity if you choose to see it that way’; the importance of gratitude, ‘Gratitude can transform any situation. It alters your vibration, moving you from negative energy to positive’; the power of choice, ‘Right now, no matter where you are, you are a single choice away from a new beginning’; the need to love who we are, ‘Look inward-the loving begins with you’ and many more philosophical maxims that are relevant to all of us.

I'm really embarrassed to have even bought this book and apprehensive about writing a review les​t everyone learn how much of a closet fan I am. I love Oprah. There is something about her voice that is comforting and grounding. Someone once likened her to your fun rich aunt who gives the best presents but won't give you any of her money and I definitely feel it.
I was very surprised by how much I took away from this. Oprah shared some really brave and important deeply personal stories in this book with personal insight and lessons she has garnered from them. I knew this book would be an easy pleasure read and it certainly delivered on that front. But I hadn't even begun to imagine how many quotes I would underline throughout.
I'd recommend this as a travel read in an instant for how easy and pleasurable it is to read as well as relaxing and insightful.

Whether through her 25-year talk show, her book club, her magazine or her TV network, everybody knows the name Oprah. And most associate the name with generosity of spirit and life lessons. Indeed, her new book compiles previously published columns of O Magazine from the section called "What I Know For Sure" and covers everything from reflecting on an inspiring poem to reliving painful adolescent memories.

In 1998, film critic Gene Siskel asked Oprah "what she knew for sure," a question that left her speechless and became a driving force in her life. Throughout the book, Oprah displays her unique way of both turning seemingly minor events into "aha" moments and relating her core values to provide daily affirmation. Far from generic positive mantras, the lessons she offers can apply to anyone from any walk of life; she does not propose the revolutionary but reminds us of the things we take for granted. Finally, snippets of Oprah's conversations with figures like Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama and Maya Angelou enhance the collection.

Ultimately, Oprah succeeds in conveying her creed: "What you put out comes back all the time, no matter what."

It is a beautiful book full of the wisdom Oprah has gained over the years.
I first read as a library book then bought it for my kindle then as a birthday present for one of my daughters. That is how much I value it.
The actual book covering is some kind of fabric with a lovely green ribbon inside to mark your page. Esthetically pleasing to look at and hold.

I really wasn't a fan of this book. I think it would be better suited for people who only want to read a short excerpt a day. If you're more of an avid reader, you probably won't enjoy this book. It's not very good for continuous reading.
