What I Know for Sure Reviews
I guess I just don't get it. Pure pablum. Things that have been said, repeatedly and endlessly, by any number of people and in numerous books forever. There are a few things that are nice to contemplate but, again, they have all been said before and the vast majority of it is nothing but nebulous notions like, "You lead life, it doesn't lead you" and "Be your best self." I wonder if the quiet moments of perfection come as easily in a homeless shelter as on your own private retreat in Hawaii. I w ...more
From October 24th through October 25th, I won free tickets to be of Oprah's "Life That You Want" Weekend. It was a two day seminar featuring Oprah, Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Gilbert, Rob Bell, and Iyanla Vanzant and it utterly life changing. I cannot even begin to describe how they helped refueled passion into my life and gave me the set of tools to how to figure out what I need to do in my life and how to find inner peace and happiness within myself. I truly needed that motivational speech and a ...more
O Alto Valor da Simplicidade
Para espanto de muitos, Oprah Winfrey, que certamente terá acesso a tudo ou quase tudo que o dinheiro pode comprar, reserva as suas 5 estrelas para a Simplicidade:
Um pôr do sol na companhia de amigos
Um passeio com os cães a rebolar livremente pela relva
Ler um livro à sombra da sua árvore predilecta
Andar descalça pela relva acabada de aparar
São apenas alguns dos momentos que mais aprecia no seu dia a dia...
Uma leitura que nos leva a reavaliar a Vida!
Nota: A corresponde ...more
I'm from Chicago, and in Chicago you pay attention to Oprah. In fact I think that's a law in the city. Oprah controlled the local television airwaves in the pre-HD era, and you heard her voice all over the place. In the audiobook for "What I Know for Sure", Oprah narrates, and that was a golden decision. Here you get Oprah's occasional sing-song phrasing that, well, if it didn't make her famous, it came along with her fame. That trademark is used throughout the book. The book is like a summary o ...more
هرگز یک قسمت از برنامه ی اُپرا را ندیدم، و حتی یک پاراگراف از مجله اش را نخواندم ، ولی شناخت و شنیدن نام او در برنامه های تلویزیونی گوناگون اجتناب ناپذیرست .
او ، اگر درست خاطرم باشد، ثروتمندترین زن جهان است، اما از صفر شروع کرده، سختی های فراوان کشیده و کاملاً خودساخته ست.
اما برسیم به کتابی که در دست داشتم؛ با اطمینان می دانم که...
ترجمه ی روانی داشت و تنها تعداد محدودی ایراد تایپی نامحسوس مشاهده شد.
این کتاب با یک سوال پرسیده شده از اّپرا در برنامه ای تلویزیونی شروع شد: بهم بگو، چه چیزی را به طور ...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
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
So...I've lost some respect for Oprah. I'm sure I'm alone in this and that's okay.
This book started off as "meh" with me thinking "That's easy for Oprah to say", and then got good and valuable in the middle. I thought, "Dang, this is some good insight, I'll ignore the pretentiousness of the writing--the way she assumes because she's well-known and wealthy, her idle thoughts on the world will give the rest of us something to ponder." And then she showed how out of touch she is with the world at ...more
