Now for the first time The Uncommon Wisdom of Oprah Winfrey tells the incredibly moving story of America's most beloved star in her own words. She evokes her impoverished childhood in the Deep South, her heralded rise as America's most successful talk show host, her experience as a movie actress and Academy Award nominee, and her life as a single, enormously wealthy black woman in a white, male-dominated world.

She talks, too, in her always candid and intimate way, about her passions, her hurts, and her ambitions. She describes the affairs with men that left her weeping and the joy she has found in her love for Stedman Graham. And she talks about the travail she suffered fighting her weight problems and her triumph in overcoming them.

Filled with hundreds of quotations, The Uncommon Wisdom of Oprah Winfrey plumbs such sensitive subjects as the abuse she suffered from relatives when she was a child, her experimentation with drugs, her feelings about the enormous success of her show, how she relates to her family, and the causes and charities that drive her.

Deservedly adored by millions, the real Oprah Winfrey is revealed as never before in this astonishing, unauthorized book.

Bill Adler is the editor of the very successful The Uncommon Wisdom of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, The Cosby Wit, and The Kennedy Wit.
