This Book Changed Oprah Winfrey's Life


Imagine spending an entire day at the beach, relaxing underneath an umbrella with a good book. That's what we call goals. And speaking of goals, some of the most inspiring celebrities wouldn't be where they are today without an inspiring read. Oprah Winfrey credits The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav for completely changing her way of thinking (and life) back in the '80s. And Halle Berry says she'll never forget the book her fifth grade teacher recommended to her: Some Love, Some Pain, Sometime by J. California Cooper.

It's time for us all to get inspired, too. Make sure you add all of the life-changing books below to your library this summer.

"The number one principle that rules my life is intention," Winfrey told LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner in a 2015 interview. "And that is actually one of the reasons why I let the show (The Oprah Winfrey Show) go."

The book has gone on to inspire a lot of Winfrey's work over the years, including most notably inspiring her to leave her popular daytime talk show to create her own network OWN. In the preface of the book's most recent release, Winfrey admits, "Quite frankly, I don't believe I would ever have dreamed of creating such a network had I not read 'The Seat of the Soul.'"

Everybody wants a baecation, and we get it! What’s better than knocking boots in the beach cabanas in the Bahamas? Or, better yet, bent over, dangling off the balcony the way Big Red had Flash in Five Heartbeats. But, pleasurably so! It’s a one-of-one sensation – vacation sex. If we’re being honest, you probably don’t have to do all of that to have your senses heightened by vacation sex; as we’d imagine, so much of it is better because it has a lot to do with our mental state being so relaxed.
