I got Eminem's new book yesterday, and like the rest of his fans, I couldn't wait to read it. The thing that impressed me most about this book were the many high-quality pictures in it. They are better than the ones of him in magazines or any other press-related items, and they are more personal. For instance, there are ones from the European Slim Shady tour, his video shoots, and other concerts. Eminem wrote the book basically to showcase his song lyrics and to give a short summary on what he was thinking with each song, where he wrote it, and the actual song process in the studio and otherwise. It gives the reader insight on Eminem's work ethics, his studio experience, and how this brilliant emcee writes. His utter concentration and perfection for his work is the number one thing you will get from this book. YOu'll also realize that beyond all the media hoopla,negative press,and his own slapstick sarcasm and wit, there is the music of an artist trying to express what goes on in his head. Eminem doesn't get VERY personal with the reader, as let's say one of his Rolling Stone interviews, but he does touch on his hard life and the struggles he went through. The book is more about "what makes him tick," musically,as he puts it best in the introduction. I'd recommend this book to the true Eminem fan or Hip-Hop fan who wants to know what it is like to think up some phat rhymes and beats, maybe first in the form of a catchy hook, and then actually take it into the studio to create a song. This book, in essence, is the biography about each one of his songs. Also included, are some bonus works, such as freestyles he did on college radio stations and songs that didn't make it off the cutting room table to be added to his albums. Eminem gives you what no journalist focuses on enough: the music and the genius process behind it.

THIS BOOK IS SO GREAT. IT IS NOT ABOUT HIS LIFE THOUGH. IT IS MORE OF THE WORDS TO HIS SONGS WITH THE REASON OF WHY HE WROTE THEM. DON'T BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU WANT A BIOGRAPHY.

This book was really amazing! I got it for a Christmas present and I had been wanting it since it first came out. I think it's wonderful. It was so awesome to read through all the different pages and then look at the wonderful, full-color pictures. I loved reading every story behind every song... especially my favorite songs. It was really awesome for me to know how Eminem came up with the words to my favorite songs and what he was thinking of when he did it. The introduction alone was wonderful! I loved it. It gave you a rare glimpse at Marshall Mathers. Not Slim Shady, not Eminem, but the REAL Marshall. After that intro Eminem doesn't need to do anymore explaining about himself or his music. For anyone who doesn't understand him, the intoduction shows you what he is all about. It shows you that from the beginning all Eminem cared about was self-expression and the music. No matter what he raps about it's obvious that all Eminem tried to do was capture his feelings on paper. I recommend this book to all true Eminem fans! I think this is a book made directly and only for the fans who understand and love him (like me!) I loved listening to the song on my discman as I read the lyrics in the book. It helped me understand and feel the song better. Not to mention, the pictures were wonderful! This book is by the man himself... Eminem. So what else could you want? And why would you read anything else about him? You know none of this information is false because it's from Eminem to his fans. It is the best book and I recommend all Eminem fans go out there and pick it up! It's definitely worth every penny.

This book will probably be bought by real Eminem fans and pop-groupies alike, for the fact that it is an Eminem book. The difference is the pop-groupies will add it to their collection of other Eminem memoribillia and never look at it again, where as the real Eminem fans will read through the lyrics and the introduction about each song, and learn the story behind each lyric and why the song was written. I thought this book was good as it let you get to know a lil' bit more about the way Eminem thinks. Reading from his early day freestyles right through to the Marhsall Mathers lp really does show you how much Eminem's lyrics have changed. No matter how many people want to slag him off, you can't change the fact Em is a highly accomplished lyricist

The Book Angry Blond is a biography written my Eminem. This book is about his music, and why he uses the words he does. It tells in detail what each song is about and why he wrote it. I think that if you like Eminem's music, and want to know the real reason he uses his words, you might be interested in this book. I enjoyed this book because I like Eminem and his music. I read his lyrics and discovered that what he said was clever. He might have lost a relationship with his mother and wife, but what he said and told the world about it was all real. I think this is a great book, and if you are interested in Em or his music, you should check it out.

This book is amazing! I would buy it just for the introduction alone! It is full of color pictures all through it that you can't find anywhere else. It is very interesting to read about how each song came about in Eminem's own words.
