Book Review: What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is amongst the most powerful names in the world. She is a living example of what a person can become if they simply have the zeal to be. Thank God that she made notes of her journey so far and decided to put them together in her book, What I Know For Sure.

Though the book was first published in the year 2014, I only got a chance to read it last week. I was looking for another book at the bookstore and while paying the bill I spotted Oprah’s name and immediately picked up What I Know For Sure.

There are multiple reasons why I think one must read this memoir. It is easy, it is crisp, it is more like a one-on-one conversation between the reader and the writer. Once you have read the whole, you can go back and read random pieces because they each have the ability to uplift you.

They say ‘Practice What You Preach’, with What I Know For Sure, Oprah has successfully told readers about all her good practices.  She has stated examples and moments from her life to encourage people to chose the path of Joy, Resilience, Connection, Gratitude, Possibility, Awe, Clarity and Power.

The cover also looks stunning.  With bold and rich looking colours, it not just goes with the brand Oprah but also radiates a rich vibe. My only issue with the book is the categorisation of pieces. There were certain write-ups which didn’t go in sync with the chapters. Initial pages were alright but as the book progressed, the latter chapters regressed.

Art of living is simple. Where we come across writers who like to scrutinize every bit of existence, we also have writers like Oprah who with utmost simplicity tell us or rather help us be happy. Pick this book, I can assure that it will fill you with a lot of positive energy.
