Highly recommend this book, especially if you're an Ozzy fan or have an interest in him.

I really enjoyed this book, it had some good humor, some pretty good advice (at times), and overall it was very interesting and entertaining.

I read this book in an afternoon looking for a way to kill time while waiting since I had some time to spare.

On the surface it seems rather silly that someone would ask advice to Ozzy Osbourne; an original member of Black Sabbath, successful solo artist and reality TV dad. Yet when you think about it, Ozzy being alive is a miracle from a medical (and human) point of view. The Madman is known for his substance and alcohol abuse. But he also survived a lot, emotionally and physically from the death of guitarist Randy Rhoads (whom he described as "God entering my life") to almost dying in a quad bike accident in 2003. Ozzy was approach by London paper The Sunday Times to write a column each week and answer questions as "Dr. Ozzy". It's an interesting concept and while it may have failed with any other rockstar, with Ozzy it works. Osbourne answers questions but mostly they aren't specifically about medical health, they're more varied and real-life issues. I read this book in an afternoon looking for a way to kill time while waiting since I had some time to spare. I must admit that I wasn't expecting too much out of "Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy: Advice from Rock's Ultimate Survivor" but it was a much more pleasant read than I imagined it would be. I enjoyed Ozzy's first book "I Am Ozzy", which was more of a biography but still ended up enjoying this second book just as much. "Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy". But not only is a collection of articles, there are some also added content as chapters in between in which Ozzy discusses a bit of his medical history and his genome which explains why he is still alive today.

His answers are often very funny but he's also honest; sometimes he says it's best the asker (s) go see a doctor. At times his answers make complete sense and he can relate to the asker's questions because he's been through a lot during his 62 years.

When I first heard about a book about Ozzy Osbourne giving health advice, I thought it was completely bollocks. Luckily, it wasn't. TRUST ME, I'M DR. OZZY has to be one of the funniest books I've read in a good long while, and it blindsided me on how factual it can actually get. About 99% of the questions, Ozzy answers them truthfully and to the best of his ability. If you're an Ozzy fan, like myself, get the book. It will not disappoint.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and laughed out loud often! Despite his mad-man reputation, Ozzy displays a surprising amount of maturity, common sense, solid moral values and an endearing empathy for others, while remaining hilarious the whole time. Highly recommend this book, especially if you're an Ozzy fan or have an interest in him.

This book more or less comes off as a joke... and rightly so... Who would think, at first thought, that madman Ozzy Osbourne would be asked for medical help? However, those that have read his autobiography I Am Ozzy, as well as those that have followed his career over the last few decades would realize all the insanity that went into the man and led to him having experienced much more than most ever will.

I purchased the book at a book signing, and as such didn't get around to reading it for another couple months (the signed copy being completely protected since I got it signed, I had to wait to get another copy, which was delayed due to school keeping me busy). After sitting down and reading it, you get to see the humorous, sarcastic wisdom that comes with years of joking around and dealing with every kind of drug imaginable.

Do I think the book should be taken seriously? Not entirely... though there can be no denying that a fair bit of it is worth the read, and who knows? Might actually lead to some good.

He is certainly an interesting guy with a great perspective on life.

That loveable madman Ozzy Osbourne is back with his second non-fiction book. And while I don't really like the title so much, it's good fun to read even if it's not as informative as his autobiography (how could it be? this is a book for curiosity-seekers, not for Black Sabbath fans). I thought that Ozzy wouldn't make a believable commentator on medical matters, but he argues convincingly that his vast experience as the victim of a mind-boggling range of accidents and abuse, most (but not all) of them self-inflicted, qualifies him to dispense some level of advice. Nearly every entry has a sort of "I once suffered from the same malady, and I got over it by..." tone to it. Most chapters will contain a short intro, a series of brief questions from readers, with Ozzy providing his answers (which are sometimes shorter than the questions), along with a pull-out box giving interesting factoids on related topics, a handy graph/table running through various maladies. Nearly every answer has a pithy final sentence to it: "if you keep taking drugs, forget about your cholesterol - chances are you'll kill yourself before anything else can", "take it from the Prince of Darkness: cigarettes are evil, man" or "tea might not be very rock 'n' roll, but it's magic potion to me." At the end of each chapter there's a quiz, with the answers and scoring at the end of the book. One chapter, perhaps the most fascinating of them all, has no reader questions at all, but goes over how Ozzy had his genome sequenced and what was learned from it. The chapters are grouped by topics, such as sickness, death, diet and exercise, hygiene, self-medication, human relations, mental health, etc.Read more ›
