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 byThe Sunday Timesof 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 byRolling Stoneto 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Humorous How did he ever survive
Date published: 2014-09-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Humorous Amazing book to read, learn from the living legend himself. Always been a fan, like him even more now. He has come a long way from being the badest to being an idol.
Date published: 2014-01-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Full of Common Sense In a question and answer format originating from popular newspaper columns, Ozzy provides advice on a variety of topics concerned mainly with health/social/psychological issues - these being sorted out in different chapters. To be honest, I was expecting this book to be full of humour all centered uniquely on health matters. Instead, I found this book to be full of sound, reasonable, common sense advice on several topics - including drug and alcohol abuse. As an added bonus, Ozzy has included quite a bit from his own personal life experiences which makes this book doubly interesting. And the humour is there, as well! In fact, on several occasions I had tears rolling down my face from laughing so hard. The writing style is very clear, lively and friendly, but especially it's, well, Ozzy's. This book can be enjoyed by anyone looking for a light, pleasant, humorous and informative read - Ozzy fan or not.
