Oprah Winfrey : a biography
Oprah Winfrey : a biography
by:Garson, Helen S.
Oprah Winfrey is an international television talk show icon, a billionaire, a noted philanthropist, and an adoptive mother of underprivileged children in America and Africa. She has achieved a position of such eminence that she has been recognized as one of the world's most powerful people by CNN, Time, USA Today, Life, Forbes, and Entertainment Weekly. This biography examines the life of a person raised in poverty and a single mother at 14, who is now one of the richest and most influential people in the world. Oprah's life is a bonafide rags-to-riches story that is all the more compelling because of her empathy, sense of humor, and ability to communicate and connect with people. Beyond the estimated 30 million American viewers who tune into her television show each week, there are devoted fans in 140 countries where Oprah's show is broadcast. Her life and businesses continue to expand, now encompassing a radio channel, two magazines, and the forthcoming OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network television channel. This book documents the different aspects of Oprah's life, incorporating the details of her public, private, and philanthropic personas. These seven chapters of the second edition span the time period from her childhood in rural Mississippi to her present-day status as a global superstar and philanthropist.
