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 enrolment 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.
