What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Cooper tackles one of the richest and most famous women in the world, recounting her complicated life and extraordinary history with honesty and clarity. This comfortably sized volume makes excellent use of many quotes from interviews, Oprah’s own writing and, of course, her television show. Her personal struggles are not simplified nor are her remarkable public acts of philanthropy and care over-exaggerated: She hosts a talk show indeed, but she also writes, speaks, acts and makes good things happen. Sure to find a rapt audience.”—Kirkus Reviews
