What I Know for Sure Reviews
Re-Read: January 23, 2018
"What I know For Sure" is my comfort book. Whenever I feel like the world is spinning out of control I pick up this book and go to the solid advice of Oprah. Honestly, this book speaks to my soul which is why it is on my list of re-reads. Also, it is a great book to read at the start of the year.
It goes without saying, this is a must read.

Honestly, this books gets me every time. It offers sound, solid, well thought out advice that you can use a ...more
What I know for sure is that Oprah Winfrey is such an inspiration and an amazing teacher of truth and spirit. I know that she has opened up my heart, mind, soul and spirit for many years and I constantly seek her wisdom when I'm self-doubting or not being authentic. She really says the right things when you need it said the most and it all makes sense. This is what I know for sure.
This is a great book of insight and inspiration, and I highly recommend it to those who seek more than what their e ...more
Bueno, este libro me tapó la boca.
No tenía demasiadas esperanzas de encontrar algo interesante, principalmente porque pertenece a dos géneros que muy pocas veces me gustan –autobiografía y autoayuda– pero me encontré sonriendo, pensando mucho con lo que dice, marcando frases como loca y hasta planeando conseguirlo en castellano para regalárselo a mi mamá.
Conocia a Oprah principalmente a traves de series u otros programas de televisión norteamericanos donde la nombraban –siempre como una voz ...more
In this book, Oprah does her thing. I mean, what do you imagine, when you picture a book written by Oprah? Well, this is exactly it.
With chapters called Joy, Resilience, Gratitude, Awe and stuff like that, it's a blend of self-help, memoir and inspirational/spiritual stories with short chapters and highly quotable phrases. She's in her element.
I'm pretty sure a book like this written by any other author would piss me off. But when Oprah does it, it feels good to read it. Oprah's writings feel ...more
A friend borrowed me a copy of this book; telling me I HAVE to read this; that it changed her thinking overnight.
So I obliged and read it. And man, it does change the way you think.
I will need my own copy, because this book will be highlighted and margin noted like none before.
It will be read and re-read ever so often.
I can't say I've ever been a fan of Oprah Winfrey. I'm not a TV person and though I know about her, I've never considered reading one of her book. This I realize now was a mistake. ...more
I listened to this book on audio because I wanted Oprah's voice in my head to cement the lessons she imparts. It was one of my better ideas. I'll be returning to this wisdom often. Sure, it's everything you've heard before if you're a fan of Oprah, but the advice she offers can't be heard too many times for those of us working to lead a fulfilling life.
The entire time that I was reading this book, I kept thinking to myself- "Oprah has led such an incredible life!"
She is remarkably inspiring. Having suffered sexual abuse and an unplanned pregnancy at the young age of 14, unhealthy relationships till her late 20s that got her to undermine her self-worth, to becoming one of the most influential women in the world today- Kudos!
This book taught me the value of gratitude in leading a more fulfilling life. Gratitude is quite multifaceted, but most ...more
A pleasant read. Most of it I agreed with, some of it was hit and miss. Oprah did well to relate many of the stories back to herself but I had this feeling that it should have come with a warning that read "lessons for the upper-middle class female only". For instance, how is a lower class teenage boy going to take 20 minutes a day on his verandah overlooking Maui to 'connect with the oneness'?
Perhaps I am becoming cynical.
