Oprah Winfrey

by Judy L. Hasday

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Young
To call Oprah Winfrey "an uncommon woman" is an understatement. What an amazing journey her life has been, and it is not over yet! Hasday presents Oprah as an average, approachable person who comes from humble, if not poor beginnings. Having survived neglect, abuse, and an unplanned pregnancy, she flourishes in spite of adversity. In fact, she more than flourishes; Winfrey is now one of the wealthiest people in the world. More than a biography, this book will appeal to those interested in journalism, broadcasting and business; it could easily fit into a curriculum for those areas. Hasday wisely includes successes as well as disappointments in Winfrey's life, leaving readers feeling anyone can be successful if they have enough ambition and patience. Appropriately, the text includes mention of people who have benefited from exposure on Oprah's popular television program, including Dr. Phil McGraw and Rachel Ray. Following the main text are a timeline, a list of references and a list of websites relevant to Oprah's work, charities and life. Informative and well-researched, this is a great addition to any home library or school. Part of the "Business Leaders" series. Reviewer: Elizabeth Young
