What I Know for Sure Reviews
So...I've lost some respect for Oprah. I'm sure I'm alone in this and that's okay.
This book started off as "meh" with me thinking "That's easy for Oprah to say", and then got good and valuable in the middle. I thought, "Dang, this is some good insight, I'll ignore the pretentiousness of the writing--the way she assumes because she's well-known and wealthy, her idle thoughts on the world will give the rest of us something to ponder." And then she showed how out of touch she is with the world at ...more
Bueno, este libro me tapó la boca.
No tenía demasiadas esperanzas de encontrar algo interesante, principalmente porque pertenece a dos géneros que muy pocas veces me gustan –autobiografía y autoayuda– pero me encontré sonriendo, pensando mucho con lo que dice, marcando frases como loca y hasta planeando conseguirlo en castellano para regalárselo a mi mamá.
Conocia a Oprah principalmente a traves de series u otros programas de televisión norteamericanos donde la nombraban –siempre como una voz ...more
I'm not an Oprah fan, yet I found this book to be thoroughly humanizing. A great work of literature? No, but it's not meant to be. It is a deep cleansing breathe.
This small book is a compendium of truths that Oprah has learned from her own experiences. There were many sections I want to save and reread but I think the last entry sums up everything she wrote about earlier. Happiness is never something you get from other people. You lead life; it doesn't lead you. Be loving to yourself and others and see that love reciprocated. Today I try to do well and be well with everyone I encounter. Everything will be returned to me and the same is true for you.
في أحد المقابلات التلفزيونية سألها المذيع: أخبريني ما الشيء الذي تعرفينه على وجه اليقين؟
ليست المرة الأولى التي تخضع فيها للكثير من الأسئلة، ولم يحدث أن وجدت نفسها عاجزة عن الرد تماماً، ولكن كانت هذه المره استثنائية وبسببها ولد هذا الكتاب.
تطرقت أوبرا في هذا الكتاب للأمور التي تعرفها على وجه اليقين من خلال مواقف عاشتها، وأحداث تعرضت لها في حياتها وكانت سبباً في أدراكها للأمور وجعلها ما هي عليه اليوم.
كتاب خفيف وممتع في نفس الوقت، ستتعرف فيه أكثر على هذه الشخصية الملهمة، نقاط ضعفها وكيف حولتها لمصدر ...more
I guess I just don't get it. Pure pablum. Things that have been said, repeatedly and endlessly, by any number of people and in numerous books forever. There are a few things that are nice to contemplate but, again, they have all been said before and the vast majority of it is nothing but nebulous notions like, "You lead life, it doesn't lead you" and "Be your best self." I wonder if the quiet moments of perfection come as easily in a homeless shelter as on your own private retreat in Hawaii. I w ...more
I know this is something I will be referring to constantly. My holy grail, my own personal bible. I mean, it's Oprah. There's so much she has experienced of the world and she shares her lessons through this wonderful book.
Oprah has some wonderful insights on life, love and everything in between (duh)
but it's undeniable that she speaks from a position of privilege and that not everyone is able to effect change in their lives the way she suggests.
