There truly aren't enough adjectives in the dictionary to adequately convey how utterly compelling, inspirational and motivational these four CD's are.

If you have a close, loving family and lots of friends to give you guidance and advice, you won't need them, to be honest, But if, like me, you're not that lucky for a variety of reasons and you find yourself either at a crossroads in Life - unsure which way to turn, which option to take or which path to tread - and/or have many unanswered questions, this set of CD's will set you along the right path.

I have been unsure about so many things in life recently: I just needed someone to set me on the right road. After listening to Oprah's inspirational advice as I lay in bed one night, I woke the next day a different person - full of optimism, clear on how to tackle career, job, relationships, friendships and confidence, and it's all thanks to Oprah.

If any of this resonates with you or someone you know, just buy these CD's: you'll be so glad you did.

I really loved this book, because I try to live my life to be meaningful as much as it can be, to be really happy about everything around me, to care only about things that matters, to be fully aware of myself, my personality. And Oprah's "teaching" is pretty much the same, so I had a few "ahhha" moments during this book but I also could learn something new. But this is Oprah. Every time I think she told me everything, that she can't teach me anything new, then she comes up with some new ideas , ideas that can sometimes even rock my world. So I'm really thankful for this book, it's such an amazing read for the soul.

Gentle and interesting - a collection of anecdotes that focus on living a better and more fulfilling life. It does not take long too read and is a great choice when you simply want to sit and reflect on your life and what you know for sure.

O Magazine has been my favourite ever since its first issue was published, and What I Know For Sure by Oprah is among the best columns for inspiration. I'm glad they decided to publish this compilation!

‘What I Know For Sure’, latest book by planetary popular host and actress Oprah Winfrey certainly is a work that her fans will immediately embrace and will surely find its way to the tops of sales charts.

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.

This beautiful book left me wanting more of 'the feel good factor'. And if a book can do that, in my opinion, is worth every penny! Here Oprah is at her best... crammed full of short anecdotal positivity, this gem inspires and understands us as only an enlightened soul can provide. With reference to Ram, Dass, Jesse Jackson, Maya Angelou, Oprah captures that spiritual search, we all find ourselves on, but cannot tangibly see. Her often poignant 'stories' show how she herself discovered great meanings to her life and her questioning of the universe, humanity etc are ones I often find myself doing too. With much grace, Oprah recollects times in her life, when simple blessings have proved major turning points in her busy life.

This is a book to keep close by. To dip into when you need some soul food... once started, I could not put down. A feel good book with positive 'messages' we all need in our daily lives. Take a deep breath and begin what will leave you feeling you have had a soul deep cleansing and the 'high' that goes with that. Fantastic reading and thank you Oprah for a book (that took me two days to read) of words that have resonated beyond imagination and into the conceivable.

I have a few books that I call "Life Changers".. This is one of my "Life Changers"...

I am a huge fan of Oprah for what she stands for and represents. I watch Super Soul Sunday and have over her interviews! Most of the people she has interviewed were so inspirational that I bought a lot of their books afterwards.

Oprah wrote this along her journey.. so I decided to give it a go...

One of the best books I have ever read. If you are looking for a book that is transformative, uplifting, inspirational that feels like advice from a friend then this a an absolute must for you. You won't be disappointed.
