Oprah Winfrey: Media Legend and Inspiration to Millions (Crabtree Groundbreaker Biographies) (Hardcover)
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 world's most influential and openly generous women.
