After film critic Gene Siskel asked her, "What do you know for sure?" Oprah Winfrey began writing the "What I Know For Sure" column in O, The Oprah Magazine. Over the last fourteen years, Oprah has penned one column a month, years in which she retired The Oprah Winfrey Show (the highest-rated program of its kind in history), launched her own television network, became America’s only African American billionaire, was awarded an honorary degree from Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, watched friends and colleagues come and go, lost beloved pets and adopted new ones, and celebrated milestone birthdays. Throughout it all, she’s continued to offer her profound and inspiring words of wisdom in her "What I Know For Sure" column.
For the first time, these thoughtful gems have been revised, updated, and collected in What I Know For Sure, a rare and powerful glimpse into the heart and mind of one of the world’s most extraordinary women. Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and dynamic, the words Oprah shares aloud in the audiobook What I Know For Sure shimmer with the sort of wisdom and truth that listeners will turn to again and again. Published by Macmillan Audio, What I Know For Sure is available wherever audiobooks are sold for $24.99. A hard cover edition is also available from Flatiron Books.

Art Therapy Mandalas: 100 Designs for Colouring and Meditation with original designs by French illustrator Sophie Leblance provides a wonderful creative outlet, encourages a sense of relaxation and increases well-being. Used in Buddhist and Hindu traditions for centuries, mandalas are symbols that represent the universe. They are often used as aids to meditation, encouraging spiritual healing and a peaceful state of mind. Their designs vary widely from simple geometrics to intricate floral patterns. Traditionally, the mandala consists of an outer circle, sometimes shown on fire to represent the universe and the dangers it holds, and an inner palace which houses deities and the enlightened.
