Summary

Sharon Osbourne has lived in her own words "fifty lives in fifty years". As the daughter of notorious rock manager Don Arden, Sharon's childhood was a chaotic mix of glamour and violence, villains and diamonds. In rock star Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon found her soul mate, yet Ozzy's drug- and alcohol-fuelled excesses which culminated in his attempt to strangle her made their marriage a white-knuckle ride from the start; only her devotion to their three children gave her the will to survive.

From the highs of The Osbournes and The X Factor to the lows of Ozzy's near-fatal quad-bike accident and her own colon cancer, Sharon's tenacity, honesty, and humour have triumphed again and again. In her long-awaited autobiography, Sharon Osbourne reveals the truth behind the headlines in her characteristically frank, intimate and articulate way. Inspiring, heart-rending and full of love, Extreme is the astonishing story of a truly remarkable woman.

Very together lady

After reading this book, I am astounded at Sharon's tenacity for life, also of her love for the men who treated her so badly. I don't think I could forgive so easily, but then it is obviously why she is now successfully getting on with her life and enjoying her current status.

Interesting read

Sharon Obourne has always made me laugh and hearing her read this herself I am pleased to say this continued within her own way of explaining things lol. A true insight into her and ozzy's childhoods, how they met, turbulent marriage and how life has its ups and downs. Thoroughly recommend!!!! Have since also listened to her latest autobiography which goes on to tell about jacks ms diagnosis, x factor , t h e Osbournes and again many ups n down. Although a shame it's not read by Sharon I definitely would recommend it as a follow on from this one.

Hilarious!

This one certainly isn't for the prudish amongst us! I've never heard so many four letter words in one sentence!!! Sharon tells us an amazing story. I laughed til my sides split at some of the antics she got up to. You will also need your tissue handy. I really would urge you to give this one a go. I'm glad I did.
