Oprah Winfrey: What I Know For Sure Audio Book Summary
What I Know For Sure Audiobook is Oprah Winfrey’s book. Who does not know the iconic woman of the most successful talk show of all time. She is a television presenter, producer, actress, businesswoman, philanthropist and American book critic who has been recognized as the most influential famous in the world.
We should start by talking about the book narrated by Winfrey. It was a great success that she gave voice to her own book, could not have been otherwise since she is a great communicator. There is something in Oprah’s voice that takes her words to another level, above what is written in her book.
In terms of content, it is an inspirational book, which speaks of positive things like living fully, becoming a better version of itself, of joy, love, pursuing dreams, courage, about being heard, about listening, about The fears, in short, everything we expect to hear from Oprah.
The title of What I Know For Sure was inspired by a question that was thrown at her when she was promoting the movie in which she participated in the name Beloved, released in 1998. Oprah could not answer what she really knew, so she meditated a lot. This question was present in his life for a long time afterwards.
When a response does not come to the head simply. It’s time to reflect and it was what Oprah did. He also thought that perhaps what he believed he knew with certainty in the past, in the present might not be a reality, because life is dynamic, few things remain static over time.
So he set about discovering what significant things he had learned from life, which resulted in a book worth sharing with others.
What I Know For Sure, is not a new story. It is an autobiographical work that speaks of experience, of life itself with all the questions that arise when living it. She tells anecdotes of many important moments for her, nothing in the book is narrated without a reason, everything has an implicit message. The general message would be to enjoy the joy of living.
It also talks about the process of being yourself, even in places where everyone wants you to be someone else, someone younger, someone with a perfect body, such as the television industry, it is a great merit that Oprah has remained in force For nothing more than his talent.
It talks about how it is also necessary to have people around us that are our support, just as it is important to be the support of someone else. Also, it is important to help who we can.
Oprah’s narrative is impeccable. It is very easy to pay attention, it is very easy to get hooked and it is practically impossible not to ask ourselves the questions she is asking, it is almost impossible not to close our eyes and let ourselves be carried away by this book that in a certain way is a balm for the spirit.
