Oprah Winfrey and Arthur C. Brooks in Conversation with George Stephanopoulos: Build the Life You Want

September 12, 2023

Join Oprah Winfrey and bestselling author Arthur C. Brooks (creator of the popular “How to Build a Life” column in The Atlantic) on the secrets behind living a happy life — and a conversation about their new book, Building the Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier, with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.

How can we mobilize our lives toward greater happiness? How do we translate ideas about happiness into action? How do we take control of our present and future? Winfrey and Brooks have each spent decades tackling big questions about finding happiness and achieving self-actualization. In their fascinating collaborative book, they lay out their hard-earned wisdom in concrete steps with practical solutions for how to strengthen four crucial pillars of happiness: family, friendship, work, and faith. In this intimate, powerful conversation, hear them discuss what they’ve learned about happiness — why it matters, how to build your blueprint for a more fulfilling future, the adventure that awaits you in the process, personal stories that didn’t make it into the book, and more.
