Summary
This inspiring book tells the story of Oprah Winfrey. Born and raised in crushing poverty, she transformed her childhood fascination with the media into a series of jobs on local TV and radio. After reviving the ratings of a Chicago talk show, she formed her own production company and began her personal version of an all-American success story. Today, Oprah is looked upon not only as an accomplished African-American woman, but as a confidant and inspiration to hundreds of millions around the world. Called the Queen of a vast media empire, she has experienced both admiration and critical scrutiny and become one of the worlds most influential and openly generous women
