Her image is iconic: Oprah Winfrey has built an empire on her ability to connect with and inspire her audience. ""The Oprah Phenomenon"" examines the origins of her public image and its substantial influence on politics, entertainment, and popular opinion. Winfrey's ability to create a feeling of intimacy with her audience has long been cited as one of the foundations of her popularity. She has repeatedly made national headlines by engaging and informing her audience with respect to her personal relationship to race, gender, feminism, and New Age culture. ""The Oprah Phenomenon"" explores these relationships in detail and promotes a greater understanding of Winfrey's influence on the American consciousness.
