Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wondering if science could explain how he survived his 40-year avalanche of drugs and alcohol, Ozzy Osbourne became one of a handful of people in the world to have his entire DNA mapped in 2010. It was a highly complex, $65,000 process, but the results were conclusive: Ozzy is a genetic anomaly. The Full Ozzy Genome contained variants that scientists had never before encountered and the findings were presented at the prestigious TEDMED Conference in San Diego-making headlines around the world. The procedure was in part sponsored by The Sunday Times of London, which had already caused an international fururoe by appointing Ozzy Osbourne its star health advice columnist. The newpaper argued that Ozzy's mutliple near-death experiences, 40-year history of drug abuse, and extreme hypocondria qualified him more than any other for the job. The column was an overnight hit, being quickly picked up by Rolling Stone to give it a global audience of millions. In TRUST ME, I'M DR. OZZY, Ozzy answers reader's questions with his outrageous wit and surprising wisdom, digging deep into his past to tell the memoir-style survival stories never published before-and offer guidance that no sane human being should follow. Part humor, part memoir, and part bad advice, TRUST ME, I'M DR. OZZY will include some of the best material from his published columns, answers to celebrities' medical questions, charts, sidebars, and more.

Review:

"A legendary rock star turned advice columnist, Osbourne offers his unique take on life's everyday problems and predicaments in this hilarious collection of his best pieces from the pages of the Sunday Times and Rolling Stone. Although it's slightly disappointing that Osborne himself doesn't read this audio edition, Frank Skinner — who also narrated the author's memoir, I Am Ozzy — does a commendable job without resorting to a stuttering, marble-mouthed impression of the famously incomprehensible rocker. Skinner also deftly voices the many advice-seekers' often inane letters, which Osbourne is only too happy to answer in his own special way. Laugh-out-load funny and surprisingly informative, this audio is a must for fans. A Grand Central hardcover." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
