Who doesn't like to think that they are not influenced by media icons? Robyn okrant decided to put that to the test by following oprah's advise, recommendations and buying power for one year. This book was far more than entertaining. It was hilarious and telling of the ways in which we are often drawn to the media wisdom dosed out in hour long programs, monthly magazines, and endorsements. At her best, Oprah puts her passions to the service of others. On the flip side, can every woman afford the ingredients for 'amazing' gourmet burgers or a must have Brooks brothers no iron shirt? It's easy to adore Oprah, but as readers of this charming book will discover, oprah's reality is not the same as everyone else's.
