Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy: Advice from Rock’s Ultimate Survivor by Ozzy Osbourne
Here in Connecticut we had a major storm. It was horrible with power outages for a few days to a few weeks. I thought we could all use a good laugh! I just finished, Trust Me I’m Dr. Ozzy, it is wickedly funny. I am not an Ozzy Osbourne fan as far as his music or even his show. One day I was paging through Rolling Stone magazine at the library and saw he had an advice column. It was hilarious. When I found out he was writing a book, I knew I wanted to read it.
Ozzy Osbourne has had all kinds of issues with every drug known to man and some unknown. He is a rock star that has lived on the edge for most of his life until getting clean and sober recently. He knows a thing or twenty about the bad effects of hard living. Surprisingly, he uses this knowledge and talks about his exploits in great detail. He acknowledges that many of the things he has done were beyond crazy and is very lucky to have lived through them.
Real people write him for advice on all kinds of problems from medical to marital. Though he does use the f bomb here and there, he comes across as a very caring person. He amuses the reader, but still tries to help by telling the person what he thinks is right though it may not be cool. In most cases, he advises that they see a professional. Sounds like your basic advise book, but this is so much more. He really knows how to get right to the heart of things without being flip or preachy. I actually learned a few things. A super read for anyone looking to escape for a few hours relax and laugh!
