FANTASTIC!!! I could not put this book down. I am a HUGE Ozzy fan and I knew from stories over the years how Sharon had a rough life both in childhood and in marriage. But I did not realize to what extent the horrors were that this incredible women had to live through. There are few in this world who could go through what she has experienced and come out a strong, beautiful, and more powerful woman. I've always admired Sharon but for all the wrong reasons (like being married to Ozzy and being filthy rich), but now I actually see her as a role model and someone who I could only aspire to be like. What an amazing story!!! If you haven't read it you need to. Even if you have no idea who she is, or your not a fan of her husband. If you are a woman you NEED to read this book, it will make you feel so confident and realize that you really can conquer all! After I was done reading I suddenly have a new level of self esteem and confidence in myself.
Its Sharon Osbourne so expect lots of cursing and some wild stories about life on the road, including dirt on other musicians. But her love for her family does come through.
I read Ozzie Osbourne's autobiography before reading Sharon's; I wanted to know more about the woman behind Ozzie's success. Sharon did not have an idyllic childhood, but she took the negatives and forged ahead to become a successful music manager and TV personality. Sharon lives her life for her family, and does not change her ways to please those in the music or TV industry. I think Ozzie's book was more tame than Sharon's. She portrays the dark side of both of them without dwelling so much on the past. I find her writing to be forthright and engaging. I have her next autobiography on my wish list and look forward to reading it.
Learned a lot about her and her life, fascinating.....enjoyable. This is the type of book I usually listen to in the car as opposed to snuggling up in a big chair with the fireplace read.
I never realized how much Sharon Osbourne has been through. This book, she is honest about living with Ozzie. However, this book is not only about Ozzie and her children. She starts off the book right from the beginning talking about her childhood. You will look at her differently after reading this.
from the tremendous high of her hit show the osbournes to the devastating low of ozzys near fatal motorcycle accident and her recent fight against colon cancer sharons tenacity honesty and humor have triumphed again and again.
Sharon Osbourne is one heck of a woman! Although she definitely put up with lots of things from Ozzy I COULD NOT HAVE - their life has been a roller coaster of ups and downs and yet - when all is said and done their love shines through and she has helped him to and through the sobriety he has attained. I was not really an Osbournes fan, never watched the show and Ozzy's music was too heavy for me, but I LOVED this book. Warts and all, I came out admiring Sharon and understanding their relationship. Theirs is DEFINITELY a DIFFERENT marriage, but it has worked for them and I truly believe they love each other, maybe more than some people in MORE CONVENTIONAL relationships.
Wow. I wasn't sure what to expect. Sharon is honest and sharing- what a life she's led. The book has the normal name dropping, and oh poor me, my expensive jewelry got stolen, she does have an engaging style of writing. Very frank and many details you may wish you didn't know. She does have certain areas that she goes off on descriptions that are, yawn, boring, but she's a survivor, and this book really shows it all.
Autobiography of Sharon Osbourne- from her life as a child, to helping her father run the family business, to dirt on other musicians and her life with Ozzy.....as seen from her perspective.
I'm not an O fan, but did enjoy reading it. Lots of pics too. Admit there was a LOT of swearing and nastiness/crude things discussed. But overall 3 stars
What a life! This woman has been to hell and back. Half the book is pre-Ozzy and I think that part is even more interesting. Believe it or not her husband is one of the least interesting parts of her story.
I now know Sharons favorite four letter word. With that said.. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Sharon's familiar voice. Her description of Ozzie is the biggest surprise in this Autobiography which is loaded with unexpected info and frank revelations. I first gave this CD to my 94 year old Mother and she didn't know who either Sharon or Ozzie are. Interesting and provacative and often funny. Worth the read and definetly worth the listen. I adore Sharon NOW.
