To Bruce Goldstein-an edgy, twenty-something New Yorker trying to make his mark in advertising-just waking up in the morning was an ordeal. Underemployed and recently dumped, he was well into the downward spiral of bipolar disorder. Even with therapy, lithium, Paxil, Wellbutrin, and Prozac, he could not shake his rapid mood swings, his fear of dying, or the voice of Satan, who first visited him one sunny day in Central Park. Then came Ozzy, a black Labrador pup (named after metal's Prince of Darkness”) who leads Bruce toward recovery through complete, canine dependence. From the depths of his despair to a life remade, Bruce shows how learning to care for, train, and love the hilariously loyal Ozzy provided him with the structure and focus he needed to heal.

From the Publisher:

"This very funny, sad book is even better than the cover, and it's a helluva cover!"--James Patterson, # 1 New York Times bestselling author

"This tender, joyous ode proves, once again, that happiness is a warm puppy. I hope zillions of readers--manic, depressive, obsessive compulsive, borderline, or just plain normal--will be inspired to visit their local shelters and adopt a canine bundle of joy today!"--Lee Harrington, author of Rex and the City: A Memoir of a Woman, a Man, and a Dysfunctional Dog

"Goldstein's memoir is touching, inspiring and funny. It makes me wish that every psychiatrist would write a prescription for a pet."--Andy Behrman, author of Electroboy: A Memoir of Mania

"An uproarious and yet tender story of how a charming pup transformed the life of a man battling depression. It is a delightful read for dog lovers."--Claudia Kawczynska, Editor-in-Chief, The Bark
