In the decades since Oprah became a media fixture, she has introduced the world to her best friend, her nutritionist, her interior designer, and her stylist. She has shared her favorite beauty products, her most cherished books, her philantropic endeavors, and her deepest secrets. In fact, there seems very little that Oprah is unwilling to share-particularly when it comes to the latest episodes in her never-ending spiritual journey.

New York Times best-selling author Stephen Mansfield traces the contours of Oprah's fascinating and influential life with a particular focus on Winfrey's quest for spiritual enlightenment. It is a well-publicized quest-one that features a caravan of experts, mystics, and gurus-all claiming to have a prescription for inner peace and personal well-being.

As the poster child for a generation of spiritual seekers and free-thinkers, Oprah has sent decades defining her spirituality as a form of empowerment that discourages absolutes and welcomes any ideas that appear useful, freely blending Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and the Christianity of her troubled but formative youth.

Mansfield carefully reconstructs Oprah's life experiences and shows how they reflect our larger cultural journey. He also reveals why her spiritual discoveries have resonated so loudly among her fellow Baby Boomers and have secured her unprecedented influence in our adoring modern world. In so doing, Mansfield sheds light on the dangers of a spiritual journey fueled solely by the desire for self-actualization.

In the end, we find that the story of Oprah is, in fact, the story of us-of a generation desperately searching for something meaningful to believe in.
