Oprah always kind of creeped me out but I did watch on occasion and sometimes the show was interesting. I heard that Kitty Kelley was a really nasty biographer so I picked this up for no other reason that the book was there and I was in the mood for something silly. However, I will admit that this is a terrific read: Kelley is actually quite fair and backs everything up. If you want to know how Obama became president of the USA, read this. How this woman got to be so powerful is beyond me but on top of that, she was astute enough to launch several careers (Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil). This is a good read for a Sunday afternoon.
