What happens when a thirty-five-year-old average American woman spends one year following every piece of Oprah Winfrey’s advice on how to “live your best life?” Robyn Okrant devoted 2008 to adhering to all of Oprah’s suggestions and guidance delivered via her television show, her website, and her magazine. Living Oprah is a month-by-month account of that year.

Some of the challenges included enrollment in Oprah’s Best Life Challenge for physical fitness and weight control, living vegan, and participating in Oprah’s Book Club. After 365 days of living Oprah, Okrant reflects on the rewards won and lessons learned as well as the tolls exacted by the experiment.

    " Interesting and a little crazy. It just reaffirms what I think about people like Oprah, Martha Stewart, Fly Lady! They offer so much info, ideas, everything because they are reaching out to EVERYBody. We can't take it all as gospel. But we can just discover nuggets that peak our interest or inspire us and try those out. My viewpoint on this also helps me not feel overwhelmed that I am not keeping up with ALL the "ideas" out there. That would just be too hard. Hence, why Pinterest scares me a bit! "

    " Good, but I would have liked it if she had included more analysis of Oprah by scholars, etc. "

    " Ok, I admit, I couldn't get past the 3rd chapter. It all seemed the same to me, and I just skimmed to the end of each chapter only to find that she was doing more shopping than soul searching? I get that Oprah is phenomenal, and I do love her messages and ways to live by, but I also think Oprah would want you to live within your means as you aspire spiritual growth. I felt that she made this journey as a way to justify a year long shopping spree. "
