As a creative force, student of the human heart and soul, and champion of living the life you want, Oprah Winfrey stands alone. Over the years, she has made history with a legendary talk show - the highest-rated program of its kind, launched her own television network, become the nation's only African-American billionaire, and been awarded both an honorary degree by Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. From all her experiences, she has gleaned life lessons-which, for fourteen years, she's shared in O, The Oprah Magazine's widely popular "What I Know For Sure" column, a monthly source of inspiration and revelation.

Now, for the first time, these thoughtful gems have been revised, updated, and collected in What I Know For Sure, a beautiful cloth bound book with a ribbon marker, 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, powerful and intimate glimpse into the heart and mind of one of the world's most extraordinary women-while providing readers a guide to becoming their best selves. Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and frequently humorous, the words Oprah shares in What I Know For Sure shimmer with the sort of truth that readers will turn to again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Oprah! What I Know For Sure… is that Oprah is an amazing storyteller. Listening to her narrate the audiobook made me feel like I had a life coach in my pocket for a few hours. There is just something about Oprah’s voice that makes a person simultaneously feel peaceful while wanting to sit up straight and pay attention – you will likely find yourself grabbing a pen to write down a few of your own “aha” moments. This is a book that will pick you up when you are feeling down and validate you when you are feeling confident. Oprah just “gets it”. You do not need to be a fan to enjoy this book. It simply is an authentic and motivational reminder to be your best self and live your best life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS! I've always loved Oprah's 'What I Know for Sure' page at the end of her O magazine, and now it's all together in one book! How fabulous is that?? This is a book that doesn't need to be read from front to back, if you don't want to, as you can read any section that speaks to you. It's also a book that you can pick up and refer to at any time, for knowledge or for inspiration. I love the concept of Oprah's 'What I Know for Sure', and now it's all in one place - LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fabulous read for yourself or give it as a gift This is such a lovely little book to have beside your bed or in your bag for those times when you want to read something worthwhile but not too long. It's a great read for anyone. As usual, Oprah has interesting insights into life's joys and challenges. You see yourself in her stories. I bought myself a copy and since then I've bought six more for gifts. I highly recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What I know for sure Oprah has been a part of my life more so than my own family and friends. For 25 years she visited my home every day. Rain or shine or snow, she was there. Every day! She Faithfully shared her thoughts,favorite books,advice,friends and friendships,inspirations,laughter,wishes,love, kindness, stories,suggestions,success and so much more..every day without ever a second thought (with me) that this is what I Know For Sure... :0) This book just like O Magazine and the Oprah Show put a smile on my face,swept away things that I allow to clutter my mind, opened my eyes to so many simple truths and confirmed that my heart is in the right place! I love doing things for others regardless of those that ask »...why...« or try to make me feel like I shouldn't get involved because getting involved takes up time. My heart soars when I see the..."Really? For me? No no I don't deserve "...look on their face or in their eyes that transforms into a "yes it is and it's ok,I'm not being judged" look. When they Thank me I look at them and can actually feel the meaning of You're Welcome. No judgement. So what I know for sure is that this book ...Oprah's book, has once again reminded me that I have the power within to be me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I got this lovely book for Christmas and have been enjoying it very much. The last page of the "O" Magazine has always been my favorite (and always read 1st) so it is a treat to have a compilation of the "What I Know For Sure's"... I'd say get it in the actual book form as it is lovely with its linen cover, thick pages and built-in satin ribbon book-mark. Too pretty for a Kobo or other reader.
