Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0471298646, Hardcover)

Get Oprah's two cents on everything from rocky romance and overcoming fear to spiritual growth and setting goals. Compiling from numerous sources, author Janet Lowe (Warren Buffett Speaks, Bill Gates Speaks) pulls together an impressive collage of quotes and anecdotes from one of the most influential women of the 20th century. Whether you're looking for a nugget of wisdom on relationships ("You know the old cliché, 'a good man is hard to find'? Well, it's true. And the smarter you get, the harder they are to find") or a spiritual insight ("God blesses you better when you pray on your knees"), Oprah Winfrey Speaks is chock-full of snappy snippets and sage advice. Although the book spans everything from Oprah's upbringing to her future predictions, most of the subjects are covered in a few pages or less, making it a better digest than diary.
