What can I say Oprah Winfrey Up Close was purchased for my wife and 95 year old mother in law They both love it And from my perspective, the book arrived in a timely fashion in good condition and was purchased for an excellent price Good buy for me Good service Great read. great book, good to know that people can rise from very difficult start in life. An OK resume of this celebrity Good read It was a very brief overview which was what I wanted, an ok read, ideal for short attention spans like mine The first half was good It had details of this remarkable woman that was inspiring The second half read a bit rushed and cursory, with an abrupt and less than something ending I bought this for my Kindle At the 74% mark, the bibliography and endnotes started Disappointing Had I known, I would not have paid the 6.xx. I know about Oprah now I was never a fan because she comes off so judgmental I decided to read about her because she is successful and generous, I thought maybe I can learn something Now I have respect for her She s come a long way This book gives me hope. Interesting read. The life of media mogul and humanitarian Oprah Winfrey is discussed with information about her thirty year career that has influenced radio, television, film, theater, magazines, and books Reprint
