Much of the book focuses on Winfrey's work and philanthropy, concluding with the Oprah Winfrey Leadership School for Girls in South Africa. Average-quality black-and-white photos are included. This well-documented, easy-to-read biography is a good resource for reports.-Sarah Krygier, Solano County Library, Fairfield, CACopyright 2007 Reed Business Information
