What I Know for Sure Reviews
هرگز یک قسمت از برنامه ی اُپرا را ندیدم، و حتی یک پاراگراف از مجله اش را نخواندم ، ولی شناخت و شنیدن نام او در برنامه های تلویزیونی گوناگون اجتناب ناپذیرست .
او ، اگر درست خاطرم باشد، ثروتمندترین زن جهان است، اما از صفر شروع کرده، سختی های فراوان کشیده و کاملاً خودساخته ست.
اما برسیم به کتابی که در دست داشتم؛ با اطمینان می دانم که...
ترجمه ی روانی داشت و تنها تعداد محدودی ایراد تایپی نامحسوس مشاهده شد.
این کتاب با یک سوال پرسیده شده از اّپرا در برنامه ای تلویزیونی شروع شد: بهم بگو، چه چیزی را به طور ...more
In this book, Oprah does her thing. I mean, what do you imagine, when you picture a book written by Oprah? Well, this is exactly it.
With chapters called Joy, Resilience, Gratitude, Awe and stuff like that, it's a blend of self-help, memoir and inspirational/spiritual stories with short chapters and highly quotable phrases. She's in her element.
I'm pretty sure a book like this written by any other author would piss me off. But when Oprah does it, it feels good to read it. Oprah's writings feel ...more
Beautiful & inspiring.
"What I know for sure is that there is no strength without challenge, adversity, resistance, and often pain".
"Who could I have become if I had finally done the things I always wanted to do".
"The gift of deciding to face your mortality without turning away or flinching is the gift of recognizing that because you will die, you must live now".
I'm not an Oprah fan, yet I found this book to be thoroughly humanizing. A great work of literature? No, but it's not meant to be. It is a deep cleansing breathe.
Inspiring, beautiful and easy to ready. Suitable for those who want to start their reading habit again. Simple yet truthful lessons. In the book I found the same values that I've been following, and the views and experiences which may seem a little bit strange to others are the ones that moved me deeply. For instance compassion is a way to find love, or you're the best mother, father, sibling, friend or lover of yourself.

Well, if you are an Oprah fan, you will love this! I would highly recommend buying this as an audiobook rather than the hardcover or paperback because there's something about Oprah's voice that makes everything still and makes the person listening truly pay attention and really get it. It's one thing to see Oprah's words on the page but hearing it from her mouth takes her words to the next level. It's difficult to explain but her voice means so much and it works so well and makes so much sense t ...more
في أحد المقابلات التلفزيونية سألها المذيع: أخبريني ما الشيء الذي تعرفينه على وجه اليقين؟
ليست المرة الأولى التي تخضع فيها للكثير من الأسئلة، ولم يحدث أن وجدت نفسها عاجزة عن الرد تماماً، ولكن كانت هذه المره استثنائية وبسببها ولد هذا الكتاب.
تطرقت أوبرا في هذا الكتاب للأمور التي تعرفها على وجه اليقين من خلال مواقف عاشتها، وأحداث تعرضت لها في حياتها وكانت سبباً في أدراكها للأمور وجعلها ما هي عليه اليوم.
كتاب خفيف وممتع في نفس الوقت، ستتعرف فيه أكثر على هذه الشخصية الملهمة، نقاط ضعفها وكيف حولتها لمصدر ...more
I know this is something I will be referring to constantly. My holy grail, my own personal bible. I mean, it's Oprah. There's so much she has experienced of the world and she shares her lessons through this wonderful book.
