Publisher's Summary

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.

Extreme Ride

This book makes an excellent companion book to Ozzy's autobiography. But, more than that, it fills in the blanks that book leaves out. Sharon's life is one gigantic rollercoaster of a ride from day one! What with having the "Godfather of Pop" as a father to her sometimes "nightmarish" marriage to Ozzy. But, despite it all, Sharon comes through with "flying colors." I didn't know what to expect when I first started listening to this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. You come to know Sharon as a person and her personal feelings with each situation in her life. I just wish I had heard of and listened to this book much sooner. The only reason I actually looked this one up was because of Ozzy's book. So I say: don't just listen to this one. Listen to Ozzy's as well. It is like two sides of a puzzle fitting perfectly together. Great book. Great narration. Well-deserving of the five-star rating.
