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 recent sad loss of her father, to her experiences as a judge on numbe-one hit shows The X Factor and America's Got Talent, to the further jaw-dropping adventures and dramas in the Osbourne family, Sharon tells it like it really is - with wit, honesty, and style. Set to be a huge best seller this autumn, Survivor is as astonishing, big-hearted, and fascinating as Mrs O herself.
