Wondering if science could explain how he survived his forty-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 by the Sunday Times of London, which had already caused an international furor by appointing Ozzy Osbourne its star health advice columnist. The newspaper argued that Ozzy’s multiple near-death experiences, forty-year history of drug abuse, and extreme hypochondria qualified him more than any other for the job. The column was an overnight hit, quickly being picked up by Rolling Stone to give it a global audience of millions.

In Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy, Ozzy answers readers’ 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Sometimes uncontrollable laughter is the best medicine.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Laugh-out-load funny and surprisingly informative, this audio is a must for fans.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred audio review)

  • “Highly entertaining and often enlightening…Ozzy writes like the charming, avuncular Muppet-style goofball he displayed in his 2002–2005 reality show The Osbournes.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “What a hoot to read this book, drawn from Osbourne’s columns in Rolling Stone and the London Sunday Times.”

    Library Journal

  • “Experiencing a void in your advice intake since Dear Abbie and Ann Landers were replaced by younger busybodies?…As Ozzy and the book’s repeated editorial warnings and disclaimers warn, he is ‘not a qualified medical professional’—‘seriously, caution is advised.’ Still, ‘Dr.’ Osbourne’s advice is more down-to-earth than what more traditional sources offer.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisa Gonzalez | 2/19/2014

    " Ozzy does it once again....5 stars! It seems Ozzy has a health advice column with the Sunday Magazine in London and Rolling Stone. This book gives some of the letters and answers he receives as well as interesting facts about medicine and strange illnesses. A hilarious and interesting book. I got this one for my nook. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janene | 2/14/2014

    " Just makes me miss The Osbourne's all over again. Love Ozzy & this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samuel B. Shaw | 2/3/2014

    " Really funny book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 1/31/2014

    " It was a lot funnier then you think it would be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 1/28/2014

    " Really funny book! Nice to see Ozzy poking fun of even himself, showing his human side. Guy's really been through a lot! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Talia | 1/25/2014

    " It was super cool meeting Ozzy and getting my book signed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/24/2014

    " Love love LOVED this book. I am not a fan of Ozzy's music, but I love the brands that he and his wife have created for themselves. This book was a light read, a lot of fun and a great break from all the bad news out in the world today. After reading this book, I am convinced that the "Prince of Darkness" has a huge and gentle heart. He gave a lot of funny advice but it's clear to me that he really does care about others and would like to help people from repeating his bad choices. Thanks Dr. Ozzy, for a great diversion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reese Copeland | 1/9/2014

    " While all the medical information Ozzy may not know himself, you can get a sense that he really does have concern for the folks who write in. He has some funny moments, some heart felt moments, and other moments where he can share either his own experiences or those of people he knows. Entertaining, as well as informative in typical Ozzy fashion! Worth the read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean-nicolas Bleau | 1/8/2014

    " I really love the book and I read it in two days. It's a very funny book and I enjoy the real anecdote, fact and question about the people. The recommandation by Dr. Ozzy is also very cool. An easy book to read and it's incredible to read everything that happen to the prince of darkness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roberta | 12/26/2013

    " Ah, Dr. Ozzy... how come some of your answers seem more reasonable and make more sense that the answers of more qualified experts? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 12/21/2013

    " Ozzy is almost always entertaining. Some of his answers are hilarious while others are actually sound advice. The quizzes and other factoids were really interesting. Just don't read it looking for real medical advice (which should be blatantly obvious...) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reika | 12/16/2013

    " This book is even more hillarious than his bio "I AM Ozzy". Chock full of the "Ozzy humor" we've all come to know and love but also tons of common sense advice. A great read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 12/13/2013

    " Oh. My. God. Ozzy is writing an advice column that appears in the Sun Times and Rolling Stone... he's hysterical and draws on his own life for examples in his answers to letters from fans about everything! Even parenting and medical concerns. But I have to say, he's really got good advice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie Everett | 12/11/2013

    " I had no idea Ozzy had an advice column - I've subscribed to Rolling Stone just so I can continue reading it. The book was a collection of the letters he's answered and I laughed myself silly through the whole thing. If you look past the smart @ss comments he makes, he really does have common sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 12/10/2013

    " Utter silliness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyrie | 12/3/2013

    " It's a slightly raunchier version of his column in Rolling Stone magazine. Despite his language, I had to laugh out loud at some parts. On the other hand, I have a warped sense of humor, like weird medicine and get the giggles imagining a rock star chatting up a cow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 11/29/2013

    " I am really liking this book so far. It is laugh out loud funny. I can't wait to see what else Ozzy has to say! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roseann | 9/29/2013

    " I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book, but I wound up being pleasantly surprised. At times laugh out loud funny, at others cognizant and insightful, it seems like 'ole Ozzy has really cleaned up his act. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 9/13/2013

    " Ozzy is hilarious! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyssa Greatbanks | 8/2/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophie Sansregret | 4/12/2013

    " Just a treat. I can hear his voice throughtout. It's the perfect bathroom book. Crisp sage and entertaining advice. Wonderful frank tidbits and glimpses into Ozzy's life as well. No need to be an Ozzy fan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 5/3/2012

    " Worth reading for the few REALLY good laughs I had. But overall not great. But those really good laughs were out loud hilarious and have stayed with me. V funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dani | 4/14/2012
