Customer Reviews

He has been glued to the book since he got it a few days ago.
Amy
It's a great book made by Eminem himself, so it has personal information and personal photos in it.
Shady_Mathers
Got the book and read first "chapter," it's like Eminem's just talking and you are listening.

This book is really great. Since the book is written mostly by him, you will learn A LOT about him, even the most hardcore fans will find somethings new here. He's very open, honest & pretty funny. Also, there's like 20 pages of his lyric sheets with comments on them by him, this was cool for me cause I like seeing how music artist write their stuff (although his handwritting is hard to read). Also there's personal pics (a bunch), drawings (like 4) but mostly this book is like sitting across him and interviewing him.

I am one of Eminem's "older" fans that he references in his book -- but it wasn't "8 Mile" that did it, it was his performance of "Stan" with Elton Jon. He has always intrigued me -- never smiles, seems kind of awkward in interviews, but yet is an artistic genius who is obviously the "real deal" and hence his long staying power. I thought the book was wonderfully written -- a conversational style that sounded just like him, yet wasn't so full of rap jargon that I didn't get it. I loved hearing about his relationship with Proof, who I hadn't known much about. It was interesting, and a little sad, to hear how fame has affected his ability to go out in public without a "posse". The book humanizes him and shows that he's matured; he even apologizes for that dumb Triumph the Insult Dog incident. And the photos of the scrawled lyrics, some on hotel paper, were fascinating. However, I felt key details were missing: He glosses over how he first got involved with Dr. Dre; there's barely anything about his relationship with Kim, how he met her, why they remarried then almost immediately split up again; there's nothing about his addiction to painkillers or going through rehab. The book just comes to an end rather abruptly. If he would have gone into more detail about these aspects of his life, the book would've been perfect, to me.

Even though I'm a huge Eminem fan, I learned a lot from this book. He covers a lot of subjects that he hasn't before and explains a lot of recent events too. I think the book is very well-written, easy to follow, and very interesting. I've been waiting for Eminem to write a biography for a very long time and I think the wait was well worth it. I'm not too big on reading but I finished this book in three days. If you're an Eminem fan, buy this now. You won't regret it because you'll learn a lot from it.

I read the entire book in two days, what can I say. Fanatics will be pleased, as I am, that there are full color images of his writing of songs in his notepad. As a writer I feel very similar and I like seeing how the actual lyrics are constructed. He doesn't delve into anything too personal other than the death of Proof and how badly that hurt him. It is a very interesting read though. Bottom line: if you're only interested in Eminem's music or a casual fan, don't buy this. If you're a pretty hardcore fan and enjoy a lot of awesome pictures, then buy this for sure.

Not a bad book at all, but this seems to be put together for the true collector/fan of Eminem only. Em doesn't go into nearly as much detail about his growing up, early days with Dre, experiences with 50 Cent & others on Aftermath as I would have liked, but that being said, he does give the reader an idea of some of the hardships he experienced as a child. Arguably, his first two albums are more of an autobiography than this book, which may be why the length is so short. The lyric sheets (copied from his extremely-hard-to-decipher originals) are nice, but who can get anything from reading them?

Format: Paperback
Since this book is coming from a professional rappers point of view and not a professional writers point of view, I'm shocked to hear complaints like, "not enough writing." Truthfully, for someone who doesn't write professionally (rap doesn't count, it doesn't follow regular grammar or writing rules), he articulates himself very well. In addition, his memoir is honest and compelling without having to fill a certain page number quota or airing ALL of his dirty laundry. Eminem's book is by far one of the most thorough and informative autobiographies because he doesn't just dwell on his personal struggles but gives us, the fans, a glimpse into his music and music career; all of which should take precedence over any of the smut and BS some "real" fans are looking for in an Eminem memoir. I'm appalled to hear complaints saying, "he didn't get personal enough," or, "I wish he would have told us more about his kids and family," because that's just wrong on so many levels. Just because Eminem is famous doesn't give us the right to complain that maybe he wants to keep some things to himself. Some things are not meant to be shared with the whole world, after all, he DOES have children and family to think of and take care of and whatever he puts out he should be able to be proud of and not have to worry about his daughter picking up the book and maybe finding something out about daddy that he might not want her to know. Overall, excellent book. You don't NEED to know about his relationship with his family or how many drugs he's done. Doesn't change his music and sure as hell doesn't protect his family's best interests.
