I purchased this as a gift for my mom, but couldn't resist taking a peek inside before wrapping it up. The book is lovely, cover to cover. Chock full of bright pictures and catchy articles to draw you in, but still maintaining clean lines to facilitate a good read - quick or extended, an easy choice with the way the book is divided. That's why I think it's a perfect gift for someone on the go - the book is easy to pick up and put down when time allows, so as not to intimidate the reader who may prefer to take in pages in one sitting, rather than chapters. I recommend it for anyone who likes the show, or needs a variety of positive reading material all bound in one cover!

I Love Oprah and even tried her magazine for a while - but it was too much pressure to read it every month with job, kids, bills, etc. The book is beautiful inside and out - so well organized and filled with the very best articles from the magazine (minus the ads). I can review at my leisure and have a high quality book to adorn my bedside table.

The tiltle of this book is very acurate - it really is a guide to life. Not everyone will enjoy this but if you are an avid watcher of Oprah, or, more appropriately, a regular reader of O Magazine, chances are you're gonna love this. Divided into different sections so it is easier to find what you are looking for, this makes a great read whether you are flipping through the pages or reading cover to cover.

O's Guide to Life is a great book. My daughter bought it for me for Christmas because we always watch Oprah, and then find ourselves talking about our favorite shows. This book has a little something for everyone in it. I like that it is a hard cover book. If you leave it out on your coffee table it becomes a topic of conversatin for all who visit. After receiving my book I ordered one for a friend from Amazon.com, and it arrived in great condition and on time. She really liked it. I recommend it to Oprah fans around the globe.

Format: Hardcover
Anyone who had watched the Oprah Winfrey Show, read her magazine or even enjoyed some of the programming of the Oprah Winfrey Network can see that Oprah is trying to help all of us understand exactly what we can achieve in our lives. Through her book O's Guide To Life she continues this in a "Greatest Hits" sort of fashion with articles that have been inspirational and informative for readers of her magazine and are now compiled in such a way that they can be used to address any of your interests when it comes to living the life destined for you.

Some might say that what she is doing is too much for one person to fathom or even hope to achieve. I disagree. I think that Oprah's example as well as that of those she profiles in this book shows us exactly what is possible for us. Maybe it won't be on the level as Oprah or some of the other high-profile individuals we might hear about, but it can be the greatness that is meant for us.

I began this book by going to the subjects that mattered the most to me personally, but then I found myself reading other areas that I might be able to share with other people. I think that is part of the lesson that Oprah's journey and mission have shown us. We are supposed to be a light for others, using our experieinces to help them and in the process grow more into the person we are destined to be.

It's attainable, and this is just one more reminder of it.

I love O magazine and this is a collection of the favorite articles, interviews, and inspiration. This large coffee table book gives hours of reading with its colorful glossy pages. There are tons of ideas on how to change your life, come to grips with your situation, and dream of your best future. A must have for every household.
