Robyn Okrant decided that, in 2008, she would follow every piece of Oprah Winfrey’s advice. Just to see if it could be done and if she would live a better life for it. She watched the show daily, she read O magazine, she read Oprah’s website. And she blogged about it all.

Like Robyn, I once was an occasional Oprah watcher (though not for years), not a huge fan. I just found this an interesting premise and wondered how it would go. I think what surprised me the most was after the year was up (but I’m not giving it away!). I listened to the audio, narrated by Robyn herself and she did well. It kept my attention.

Wow, interesting. I had never heard of this book before. That must have been time consuming to keep up with the show, etc., and possibly expensive to put Oprah's advice into practice.


LibraryCin | 8126 comments Yes, to both of those. She kept track, each month, of both the hours and dollars devoted to it.
