Sharon Osbourne has lived, in her own words, "50 lives in 50 years". As the daughter of notorious rock manager Don Arden, Sharon's childhood was a chaotic mix of glamour and violence, one week touring with Little Richard and Jayne Mansfield, the next meeting the Animals and Electric Light Orchestra. In her late 20s, after years of fierce loyalty to her ruthless father, who had betrayed her many times, Sharon finally made the painful decision to break with her family.


She found her soul mate in rock star Ozzy Osbourne, turning his career around and becoming a legendary manager and rock promoter in her own right. But Ozzy's drug-taking and drinking fuelled excesses, which culminated in an attempt to strangle her, making their marriage a white-knuckle ride from the start. Only her devotion to their three children gave her the will to survive.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 2/18/2014

    " I always wondered how she could be married to Ozzy, she always seemed like the stable one. Boy, she's was raised with a dysfunctional family. I really have much respect for Sharon and how hard she worked to make Ozzy's career what it was. In a lot of ways her back ground reminds me of my own mother. I love her honesty. You can tell how much she loves her kids and Ozzy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Southall | 12/21/2013

    " This was a wild ride of a book. Her life is definitely not conventional. Interesting book but not one I would recommend to many people - language throughout is very strong. But there does seem to be a lot of character strength - she is definitely a take charge person. Her life pre-Ozzie was just as crazy as her life with Ozzie. Talk about dysfunctional!!! Will be interesting to see how the children turn out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hillary Saylor | 12/14/2013

    " Interesting. Sharon's father was a music manager and that is how she met Ozzie, as her father was managing his band. They seem to have had a crazy relationship as Ozzie was on the road, cheating and drinking. Lots of drama in Sharon's life with her relationship with Ozzie and her father. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abra | 12/28/2009

    " I wasn't expecting this book to be as good as it turned out to be. I always thought of her as a spoiled rockstars wife, she has put up with so much crap. Awesome book with lots of in depth information that most celebs would keep hidden. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 11/15/2009

    " This is perhaps one of the most difficult books I have ever begun, not because it is boring or poorly written, quite the opposite, but I have read longer books in shorter amounts of time, I haven't read anything particularly challenging recently, so my reading may be getting slow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Conny | 10/20/2009

    " Particularly nice as an audiobook, read by Sharon Osbourne herself. "
