I had an opportunity to enjoy it in audiobook version and can certainly recommend that format compared to “paper” and e-book versions given the known quality of Oprah’s voice – one of the reason that made her so globally known. And taking into account the theme of her book it becomes even more evident and makes what she's talking about more distinct and convincing.
More or less what reader is expecting based on short summary it will be found inside/heard – Oprah is sharing her views on living fulfilling life, becoming recognized and better person, embracing mistakes, hardworking and courage to chase our dreams, love and gratitude, choices to which we are exposed, fighting our fears and values for which it is worth fighting for.
Therefore even if you are going through the hard period in your life and seek encouraging book that will give you inspiration and strength, ‘What I Know For Sure’ is certainly something that can be helpful, a book from which one can learn or simply find solace, a work that can be recommended.

I just got free from a very long, bad relationship. Packed my stuff and grabbed my dog. Rented a UHaul and headed across the country to start new again. (I am 63yrs). Bought this Audio book to listen to as I drive.
I felt all the old yuck stuff leave, and the new stuff flowing in... There is so much inspiration.
Perfect book for anyone wanting to find joy and a better look at living.
Will listen to it many more times. Sue
One of the most powerful things that Oprah talks about in the book is the importance of our time. She says in the book that she doesn't like to waste time, because she doesn't like to waste herself. She like to make every moment count, but she realizes at this point in her life the importance of savoring each moment, allowing what we are doing to sink in and be appreciated. I am still learning that in many ways, but it is a great reminder for us all to make sure that life is not too full that we don't enjoy it.
The other thing that really got me is how she defines herself. Oprah's journey with weight has been something she has discussed publicly and seen be a topic of discussion for others. In the book she says that she no longer allows a number on a scale to determine her value, her worth or who she is. Another great nugget for us: make sure that we don't allow the superficial to be the thing that we define ourselves and others by. We are so much more than a number or a look. We are a whole being that is worthy of love, and the sooner we recognize that the sooner we can live it.
Full of amazing nuggets that you will be able to savor yourself and share with others, WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE is a keeper for anyone who wants to discover the secret to living their best life.
Perhaps those that are more familiar with Oprah’s life, or her writing style, would expect the first pages to be written as they were - very much like a, “Day in the life of…” - and this led me to think that “What I know for Sure” was just going to be a tale of slumber parties and somber moments. Thankfully I read on though because there are some very interesting and insightful thoughts shared on the later pages.
Oprah openly shares some of the major challenges she has faced, some of the wonderful people she has met on the journey and the some of the inner ‘A-ha’ moments – the real gift that this book provides to the reader. While I understand that some readers will enjoy hearing about the other people in Oprah’s life, Oprah’s introspective moments are what resonate with me.
During these times of introspection and discovery Oprah comes face to face with universal truths that include: how our challenges often create our best opportunities, ‘Anything can be a miracle, a blessing, an opportunity if you choose to see it that way’; the importance of gratitude, ‘Gratitude can transform any situation. It alters your vibration, moving you from negative energy to positive’; the power of choice, ‘Right now, no matter where you are, you are a single choice away from a new beginning’; the need to love who we are, ‘Look inward-the loving begins with you’ and many more philosophical maxims that are relevant to all of us.
Oprah’s book reminds us that regardless of where we were born and no matter what road we travelled to arrive at our current place in life, it is all part of the human condition. The challenges we have faced can’t be undone, yet we have the power to change our perceptions of the past and we have the ability to create a future in line with our desires. It seems that Oprah’s life, a life of one of the most recognized and successful personalities in her profession, is shared in this book to show the reader that no matter who we are our struggles aren’t unique and WE ALL have the power to make positive changes.
