Audio Book Summary

Osher Gunsberg, one of Australia's most loved celebrities, opens up in a powerful, dark, funny and heartwrenching memoir about life, love and living with mental illness. It's hard to remember a time when Osher Gunsberg (or Andrew G as he was then) wasn't on TV - he's just always been there, looking at ease in the spotlight, beaming a big smile, with a questionable haircut. He was there hanging out with The Offspring backstage at the Warped Tour on Channel V; announcing to a national audience of three million people that Guy Sebastian was our first Australian Idol; and later capturing the heart of the nation by hosting every season of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and now Bachelor in Paradise.
But while everything looks great from the outside, the real picture has not always been quite so rosy. Osher has always known he's different to most other people. Struggling with anxiety, panic attacks and weight issues since he was young, he tried for years to drink away the anxiety and depression. He ended up unemployed, divorced, suicidal and certifiable on the other side of the world, yet somehow he managed to put the broken pieces of his mind back together and make a life for himself again. He lives with a mental illness - and he's come to terms with it to live an authentic, rich and fulfilling life.
A revealing, raw, funny and heartfelt memoir from one of Australia's most well-known and well-liked celebrities.

    A well written, relatable, witty and important book. Osher takes us through his life thus far. He’s been experienced more than most would in a lifetime. An honest and raw account of his struggles with traumas, addiction, mental illness and his ultimate triumphs. I would add a Trigger Warning regarding sexual abuse early in the book. Other than that it’s gold stars all round ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This was a wonderful insight into so many things people experience in life. The truth and raw emotion made it easy to listen to and feel like you could in a small way understand and relate. I was VERY taken with Osher and his openness when he was a hose on B105 in Brisbane in recent years. Having experienced this book I have so much more respect and admiration for him. Thank you for having the courage to keep going and for sharing your life so far.
