What I Know for Sure

by Oprah Winfrey

What I Know for Sure

Oprah Winfrey

Overview

Everybody knows Oprah Winfrey. She produced and hosted one of the most influential TV shows in American history. Her ingenuity brought a brand-new format to television with book clubs, self-improvement segments, and calls to philanthropic efforts. But most of all, Oprah has been a champion in shaping her own existence.

Oprah experienced hardship in her early life, but as an adult, she turned it into the stepping stone to her strength and self-sufficiency. And in What I Know For Sure she invites you to take responsibility for your own life, too. This means working hard to reach your goals. But you must also learn to enjoy the small and big pleasures you may experience on your journey, and create more of them.

"What do you know for sure?" the film critic Gene Siskel asked Oprah once during an interview. Inspired by the question, she started a famous monthly column in her O magazine, whose combined insights and revelations are in this book.
