By rights, Ozzy Osbourne should not be alive. He spent forty years on a hell-raising, bat-biting, ant-snorting*, drink and drug-fuelled bender. He broke his neck going two miles an hour on a quad bike and died twice in a chemically induced coma. And yet - at 62 years old - he is healthier and happier than ever. He is a walking medical miracle. So who better to offer the public medical advice and support? In May 2010 the Sunday Times invited 'Dr' Ozzy to be their new Agony Uncle. Since then he has answered questions ranging from dog depression to snoring to third nipples...and has also tackled more serious questions with his trademark humour and hard-won wisdom. The column has become such a phenomenon that Dr Ozzy has now decided to gather together all his advice into one handy guide. Ozzy's motto is that if he can survive and enjoy a happy and healthy life - then *anyone* can. And enjoy a very good laugh along the way. * Yes. You read that right. Ant-snorting.
About the Author
Born John Michael Osbourne in Birmingham, 1948, Ozzy Osbourne is one of rock music's most enduring figures. He has five children and lives in Hidden Hills, California, with his wife Sharon.
* Dr Ozzy's hilarious and surprisingly useful book of advice on health and happiness
After four decades of sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll, Osbourne had his complete DNA mapped in 2010, and the results reportedly showed that his genomes had variants unknown to science, proving what Black Sabbath fans knew ages ago-that Ozzy is a bit of a mutant. True or not, it makes a good story, with Osbourne narrating. This should be a blast. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
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. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
