    One thought on “Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy: Advice from Rock's Ultimate Survivor”

    1. Six days ago I attended a book signing in San Francisco by Ozzy promoting this book. He was very gracious, shaking my hand as he handed me an autographed copy of the book. I regularly read the Dr. Ozzy columns in select issues of Rolling Stone and find them entertaining, and often very informative. The last time I laughed so hard when reading a book was when I read "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter S. Thompson many years ago. The self proclaimed "Prince of F**king Darkness" can be hilar [...]

    2. BWHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!The introduction alone on this got me to give it 4 stars! Remember, this is a humorous book. And the people that write into Ozzy for advise really need to have their heads checked. "I heard that if you have athlethe's foot you can get rid of it by pissing on it, is that true?" " Hell, I wish I heard about that years ago as I used to put cocaine on mine and that was expensive"Took my time on this one. Cause I really enjoyed reading it. Favorite bits were when Ozzy realized t [...]

    3. Ozzy Osbourne gives medical advice mixed with humor and stories from his life. Pretty interesting and some of the advice is actually pretty good.

    4. I love Ozzy. I loved his autobiography last year, and I love this book a little more, perhaps. Ozzy, the Prince of Darkness, is back with a collection of questions stemming from his Rolling Stone column of the last year. People write in with questions of the unlikeliest nature, not to mention genuine maladies and medical/psychological concerns. It's one of the few things I enjoy in Rolling Stone these days(face it, kids, the glory days of that magazine have long come and gone). The answers are i [...]

    5. 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!

    6. Having read ozzy's recent bio i knew how funny he could be and also sometimes introspective and thoughtful but the format of this book was just too scattered for me. I read his column in Rolling Stone mag and enjoy it monthly but it is only about 3 questions long which is about right. This compilation includes too much dumb, predictable and unfunny stuff to make up for anything that is enjoyable. Weird little trivia facts and quizzes further muddle this collection. This is not a book to read, ra [...]

    7. Damn After reading something with as an absurd of a concept as this, you can't help but wonder what other literary gems are there to be written. Into the WWE Universe with Stephen Hawking? Chuck Norris roundhouse kicks Wall Street? Fuck it, I'm sure Vladimir Putin can write the shit out of a cookbook. The hell do we know? Nothing would surprise me after having read an entire book of medical advise from OZZY OSBOURNE, of all people: the only man walking the face of the Earth, other than Keith Ric [...]

    8. Kann das gut gehen, wenn ein Mann wie Ozzy Osbourne einen medizinischen Ratgeber schreibt, wo er doch selbst alles andere als gesund gelebt hat und sowieso ein wandelndes medizinisches Wunder ist? Die Antwort lautet: ja, das kann es! Vielleicht nicht auf herkömmlichen Wege, also man sollte den ein oder anderen Tipp lieber nicht in die Tat umsetzen, aber was es einem vor allem beschert, sind lustige Stunden und Lachen ist ja bekanntlich gesund!Wer Ozzy kennt, der kennt auch seine Eskapaden, die [...]

    9. If you are after a little pick-me-up, then this might be just the book for you. Based on Ozzy Osbourne’s columns in the British Sunday Times, “Trust me, I’m Dr. Ozzy” is jam-packed with advice on health, hygiene, diet and exercise, as well as guidance for all manner of medical situations. And after all, who would be better qualified to give out medical advice? Ozzy Osbourne has sampled every drug (legal or otherwise) known to man, so he’s bound to know what the side-affects are. He’s [...]

    10. I read this back to back with I am Ozzy so the only complaint was some repeated storytelling (oh, and some annoying printing errors that were far too common for a largely published book).This was a hoot, just like I Am Ozzy, but it was also, surprisingly, helpful. Being a person who is terrified of doctors yet constantly worried about death, Ozzy has given me the courage to check in with a GP and figure out if there is anything wrong with me.The book is kind of a 'best of', I assume, of his 'Dr. [...]

    11. Who knew that Ozzy had an advice column in the paper? Apparently a lot of people did, and he shelled out the advice from medical to personal. The result? Hilarious. Now, Ozzy isn't a comedian, but you can't help chuckle at his no-holds-barred approach to the questions.Dr. Ozzy? Maybe not - but as he admits to his own lifetime's relationship with drugs and alcohol, he has a lot of first-hand experience to share. He's a recovering alcoholic (among other things), and his "Don't" advice is usually s [...]

    12. To be honest with you the thought of Ozzy Osbourne (The Prince of Darkness himself!) being the health & relationship columnist for the Sunday Times seemed to be a bit far fetched. However this book confirms that he is. Ozzy is billed as rocks ultimate survivor and now here he is dishing out words of wisdom to those in need of his help.The answers that Ozzy gives to those that have written to him are actually very good. They come with a large pinch of common sense, a lot of laugh out load hum [...]

    13. This is a funny romp into the wild and wonderful world of medical advice provided as only Ozzy Osbourne can. Very tongue in cheek (I think he has a cure for that!!??) and will make you cringe one moment and giggle the next. If you are a fan of the Dark One, this is a fun book for you. What started off as a column for Rolling Stone Magazine has blossomed into a book to place upon your coffee table to shock and awe your guests.Ozzy is quite the character, and even with all of the joking in the boo [...]

    14. Got this book for five bucks from the Wanaka Salvation Army shop, and it would be the funniest five bucks I’ve ever spent. While Ozzy didn’t actually WRITE anything, being dyslexic and all, he supposedly dictated most of this. He had an advice column in several newspapers, and this book is a collection and expansion of these. The medical advice was all checked by professionals, but otherwise, it was pure, chaotic, accidentally idiotic but simultaneously wise Ozzy. This perfectly showcases th [...]

    15. This year I read "Trust me, Im Dr. Ozzy" by Ozzy Osbourne. I enjoyed this book very much. Originally, I was recommended a different book by Ozzy Osbourne called " I am Ozzy". My brothers had recommended me it. Unfortunately, I could not find " I am Ozzy", so instead I choose to read "Trust me, Im Dr.Ozzy". This book was the first book I read that was strictly meant to be humorous. This book was the perfect fit. Ozzy Osbourne spoke about the insane things he did in life, whether it was about his [...]

    16. I laughed, a lot, when reading this compilation of the Prince of Darkness's medical advice column. Even if these extracts have the strong unmistakable smell of a ghost writer so shot on coffee that he forgets to request his name to figure on the cover (Let's face it, Uncle Ozzy can barely come up with three sentences in a row during interviews after a life of drugs, how would he come up with such a good syntax?), this book is a genuine pure rush of pleasure and easy going fun that would definite [...]

    17. Would you take advice from a self-proclaimed "Madman"? No one in their right mind would. But the people who wrote in to Ozzy's medical advice column (reprinted here in book form) were doubtlessly not in search of sound medical advice. Regardless of the tongue-in-cheek nature of this endeavor, Ozzy nonetheless often provides common sense advice after making a joke or two.He has seen his share of doctors in his lifetime and has had some notorious health issues both real and imagined. If you want t [...]

    18. When I purchased this book, I expected that it filled with plenty of humor. However, Ozzy's advice is not just a joke! His comments made sense but also funny. He never made an irresponsible advice in this book. I mean he often mentioned a real doctor, therapist, checkup but everything was talked in funny way. It's the funniest medical advice book in the world and it's also worthwhile, I think.I enjoyed it very much but I gave it 4 stars. Why didn't I give it 5? Because "I Am Ozzy" was extremely [...]

    19. This book is about what you'd think it is. If you think that getting fake medical advice from a rock star who has abused every drug in the world simultaneously, should be dead, and lived to tell about it, is funny, you'll love this book.The irony of the former lead vocalist of Black Sabbath giving medical advice is not lost on me, so I think it's hilarious. I'm pretty sure much of it is ghost-written, so there's that. If you're a purist of any sort, you won't be drawn to this book.But the advice [...]

    20. This was annoyingly fun. Somewhat medical (lifestyle) advice from an idiot who has made almost every mistake known to man. So surprisingly his advice is fairly useful.The best thing about the book is that he continually advises people to go see a real Doctord stop being such idiots. Great advice actually.This is similar to the Darwin Awards: A close-up view of the insanity of mankind. But if someone has sunk to asking Ozzy Osbourne for help - they've bottomed out. But his answers are often hilar [...]

    21. 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. Ozz [...]

    22. Quién mejor para dar consejos de salud que el inmortal Ozzy Osbourne!? Quien le ofreció a Ozzy una columna para contestar dudas sobre los más diversos temas de salud y bienestar, fue un genio. Haber sobrevivido a accidentes, alcoholismo, sobredosis, todo tipo de excesos y al estilo de vida de un rockstar por tantas décadas, le ha dado una perspectiva única, al nuevo y sobrio Ozzy. Está escrito con gran humor y hasta se aprenden cosas Lo recomiendo para quienes quieren saber un poco más so [...]

    23. A very entertaining read.I'm not really sure how much of this I believe actually came from Ozzy, but I'll assume it was a good portion at least. While most advice came down to "visit your GP" he had some funny anecdotes and random advice that made me laugh. I just love the Osbourne family, especially Sharon, so just getting some stories from their life was fun. A good read if you like Ozzy, but don't go looking for a lot of real medical advice. There was some interesting medical trivia and quizz [...]

    24. Reading this, it's kind of sobering how much wild stuff the guy has lived through. He's not a medical expert, but he doesn't pretend to be, and refers people to actual experts when they need one. His advice is compassionate, and what he's really giving people is a sounding board- as he points out, if you write to a rock star for advice, you pretty much already know the right answer, you just don't want to admit it.Also, some of the stories about his life are hilarious.
