I don't watch Oprah or read her magazine. But I do have a good deal of respect for a person who figured out how to use her talents to prosper on an enormous scale, and looks for ways to use her influence to nudge people in good directions when she can.

I expect that a lot of people are reading books, or better quality books because of her book promotions.

I think it takes a good deal of courage for her to promote LBYM ideas when her program is sponsored by advertizers who want people to spend beyond their means.
