Format: Paperback
This book rocks. It gives tons of background on rap and Eminem and points out instances of incredible timing so you can really appreciate it...you get many, many actual quotes from Eminem and others...the author is sympathetic, not bashing, doesn't seem to have an agenda like so many others. I totally loved this book and am a HUGE Eminem fan. I would also recommend the book Angry Blonde by Eminem himself! He's the master. I LOVE YOU EMINEM!!

This book was a very interesting insight into the mind of Eminem. With thorough details into his childhood traumas and experiences with racism and bullying, you can begin to empathise with Eminem and understand the controversy of his lyrics and why he so extreme with his music. I enjoyed reading this book and now appreciate Eminem and his principles.

This was my first book about his life and it is was very readable, looked precise and honest and I read it in 2 days -very quick read for my standards.
I'm 36 years old and I feel a bit strange to have this strong interest in Eminem but, you know...

The story was good but could have been more detailed and then when your 30 odd percentage through it starts to repeat the whole story again. So all together the book is 3 times repeated in the 1 book.

Format: Paperback
This is a deplorable piece of work from a sad, talentless hack. With any luck, this will be last time Nick Hasted is ever asked to write about important figures in music, such as Eminem, whom I love. He simply lacks the skill or flair required to tell the story in a pacy, engaging and believable fashion.

I love eminem but the author was a little rude.Yeah, Marshal did some uncalled for things but you don't need to talk badly about him. It is true but Nick Hasted dd not need to addmore. Not hating, straight #respect!

We all have them, sometimes they win, sometimes we do. Even people who seem to have everything are still products of their dysfunctional past. Enjoyed the book, love the man and his music.
