Steal Away the Night: An Ozzy Osbourne Day-by-Day aims to add to the shockingly slight representation of all things Oz-man in book form with celebrated metal expert Martin Popoff plotting the crazy 30-plus-year run of rocks most adorable madman, day by day, milestone after milestone, the hirings, the firings, the rehabs and relapses, the bats, the doves, Zakk Wylde, and most seriously, the tragic death of Randy Rhoads in a fly-by prank gone wrong. Adding to the considerable textual substance of the tome (which promises to leave no Oz-related scrap of trivia unearthed) is a running oral history of the band, making use of Popoffs extensive interview material with Ozzy plus various band members and producers (along with press quotes), augmented by an explosion of garish imagery culled from the bands record sleeves, live shows, ads, and memorabilia. Indeed, Ozzys shock-rock visuals are some of the flashiest in the biz, making each page of Steal Away the Night: An Ozzy Osbourne Day-by-Day explode with heavy metal power.

''Open this book at any page, and you're immediately immersed; a triumph in its own right.'' --Aaron Small, BraveWords.com
Beautifully laid out and exploding with a plethora of stunning visuals, ranging from vintage concert shots, record sleeves, ads, posters, handbills and every other form of memorabilia imaginable, Steal Away The Night is a lavish and rewarding read from beginning to end. If you're die-hard Ozzy fanatic, then you're definitely going to want to snag yourself a copy of this book! --Ryan Sparks, Classic Rock Revisited
Innumerable books have been written about Osbourne but Popoff has managed to approach the subject in his own unique way. You'll learn a lot about the Prince of Darkness after reading this one. --Steven Rosen, Curled Up
''Steal Away The Night is an interesting dip into the land of Oz and more than adequately shows up the author's enthusiasm for the music and the phenomenon which is Ozzy Osbourne.'' --Sonic Bandwagon
''...great for fans as it's chock full of record sleeves, ads, posters, handbills, numerous items of memorabilia and vintage concert shots - including some spectacularly dreadful mullet haircuts and stage outfits that look more country & western than heavy metal. If you love Ozzy then this contains much to delight taking a day by day trawl through his 30-plus-year career milestone including the many (many, many), band members, drink, drugs, wildlife and of course the disasters.'' --Total Music Magazine
''All in all, a high quality and informative Ozzy Osbourne treasure trove.'' --Fireworks Magazine Issue 67
