The inspirational wisdom of Oprah Winfrey, collected for the first time in a beautiful book.

After film critic Gene Siskel asked her, ‘What do you know for sure? Saying that the question offered her a way to take ‘stock of her life’, Oprah has penned one column a month over the last 14 years. The Wisdom of Sundays features insightful selections from the most meaningful conversations between Oprah Winfrey and some of today’s most admired thought leaders. World-renowned brokdn like Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, and Wayne Dyer explain our complex relationship with the ego and the healing powers of love and connection.

The physics of vulnerability is simple: This is a book about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of disappointment, failure and heartbreak gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and Rising Strong our clearest path to deeper meaning, wisdom and hope. A Course in Miracles ACIM – the self-study spiritual-thought system that teaches the way to love and forgiveness – has captivated the minds and captured the hearts of millions of people.

Delivering inner peace where fear and pain once prevailed, its universal message is unsurpassed in its power to heal. Yet many students report that they have difficulty grasping the principles or keeping up with the lessons. So even while they yearn for the spiritual freedom the course offers, they put the book aside, hoping to get to it one day. In a powerful new vision, Dr. She argues that, in form, vulnerability is strength, and when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability – from revealing our true selves – we distance ourselves from the experiences iyznla bring purpose and meaning to our lives.

What does it take to be secure in our sense of belonging and self-worth?

Peace from Broken Pieces

We may hustle to attain this security through achievements, meeting expectations, or repeating affirmations to ourselves – but Dr. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Iyanla shares why everything we need to learn is reflected in our relationships and explains the strength and wisdom she has gained by supporting others in their journeys to make sense out of the puzzle pieces of their lives.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? I was going through a breakup and need somethng to ease my mind. This is my first audiobook ever. It helped me to calm down the anxiety that waited for me every night causing me not to sleep until the wee hours of the morning. Hearing Iyanla’s story touched the very deep parts of my own spirit. I could identify with the things that she went through in her life.

I chucked up my own crybaby ways and weathered my storm.

Who was your favorite character and why? Iyanla’s voice is so calming. I loved her style of “story-telling”.


Which character — as performed by Iyanla Vanzant — was your favorite? I enjoyed her entire performance of everyone that touched her life positively or negatively.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? Absolutely, I did not want to turn kyanla off. I would set the time for 45 miinutes before getting in the bed, then.

Would you consider the audio edition of Peace from Broken Pieces to be better than the print version? I have not read the print version.

What did you like best about this story? You can hear who she really is and all the emotions she went through. This makes the audiobook SO special!!! I have tried to listen to many other books only to be disappointed by the boring, robotic narrators.

This was done by Iyanla herself and it made it so enjoyable to listen to. I absolutely HATE ffee good books are ruined in audio version because of boring, snoring, robotic, unhuman sounding narrators. This book definitely is one I did not want to end!!! Iyanla’s voice is hypnotic, full of character and charisma. Would you listen to Peace from Broken Pieces again? NO, but only because this is an 11 hour audio book. I would listen to portions again, but the length makes a full second listening a challenge.

How would you have changed the story iyabla make it more enjoyable? I discovered her during her reconciliation with Oprah in her final season and then have watched her faithfully on OWN since and looked her fref on YouTube.

There is something about her and the way she speaks and delivers her advice that makes me unable to turn away. She has so many words of wisdom I have taken piecee me.

I purchased this so I could get to know her background better as I continue my journey with her as her new TV show starts this summer. However, that said, Iyanla is not known to paraphrasing neither am I and at times she goes into a VERY long form relaying of a story that goes on and on and could have been told in a much shorter fashion. I truly believe, while well intentioned, I would have gotten a bit more from Peace from Broken Pieces had she cut back a bit on every single detail in some areas and gotten this down by a few chapters in length.

Iyanla is one of the more powerful and thought provoking speakers I have ever encountered. Her voice, as always, conveys an emotion and faith that simply would not come across in writing. Hearing her tell the story was times better than my reading her words. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry? Having lost love ones and had failed relationships, I felt her pain.

I would love to meet her. I’ve made similar mistakes. She is able to lieces her career and life mistakes with humor, she is able to make you feel she understands. It is a touching story. I recommend this book iyanlla all the teachings or Iyanla Vanzant. This coming from an almost middle aged did I admit that? Irish Catholic man who lost my younger brother decades ago and my mother to cancer as she lost her daughter just over a year ago.

A woman who was the sun in my sky. It’s two parts, it’s 11 hours and you need to take ipeces this book a piece at a time. This book is so amazing! We always think that we are the only ones to go through things and experience so really bad times but this book allows to see that God does have a plan for those bad times to get you to that place of Peace!


I love this book It takes a down to earth person to give of her true experinces of such real parts of the deep hurts and struggles of her growing up and walk through life What vanzznt book might you compare Peace from Broken Pieces to and why? There are not many books I trom really compare with that has been as real as hers that I have personally read other than the one and only great poet Maya Angalo herself.

Which scene was your favorite? I really enjoyed the entire book! No it was the type of book that one would want to savior and digust a little at a time, to have listend to it in one sitting would have been like running through Iyanla’s life, it would iyan,a been almost disrespectful to have listend to in one session.

I reccomend this book to all types of people especially women who are going through crises of losing someone close, or a single mother struggling to make it through school or trying to create their own business or write a book just to name a few. It will give one strength and courage they didn’t know they had. It will also give one the strength to stand up inside ones self First off I’d like to say thank you for sharing your life’s story. I laughed and cried along the way, their were times I felt I was in that “Sister Circle”.

This book is a must read for anyone going through or has gone through some very difficult situations. Iyanla’s honesty gently cracked me open and I began to face my own challenges as she confessed hers.

Bless her heart pkeces life for sharing it all. I loved it and highly recommend this bbroken to anyone and everyone who is willing to make peace with themselves and others. This journey will teach you frfe to understand and deal with the pathologies of our lives. Pexce is not for the faint of heart. This book is for those who DARE to have the faith and courage for something new. Amazing, Heart felt, Very Sad but uplifting and I just wanted it to keep going.

I was heavily religious then but recently, l became drawn to her work in powerful way. I recommend this book highly as a volume of understanding, self-discovery and freedom in the valley. What an vanant book!! I was hooked from the start to the very end i would recommend to anyone!! Thank you for your honesty. A great but uncomfortable book for me as it heat some home trues. Iyanla welcomed us into her past, and present experiences.

Just when I caught myself criticising some of her delivery; I remembered this book is not fictional; it is her life story. A really inspirational and comical at times, it did leave me with some questions like: But i guess that is the process of starting my own life journey!
