    Nick Hasted is an absolute retard. The grammatical errors are im

    Nick Hasted is an absolute retard. The grammatical errors are impossible to get over. It's such a distraction, it makes it difficult to get the point he's trying to make. The book is also frought with misspellings, which is something I have never seen in a professionally published book. Did he even have an editor? He also got several of his facts wrong. I wouldn't recommend this book. You can learn just as much from old, biographical dvds about Eminem, without the frustration of feeling like you're reading a blog from a 12 year old girl

    was soo disappointed

    I thought that this book would at least have some one on one commentary between eminem and the author. Instead he spent his entire time citing other peoples interviews and giving a generic overview of the life of eminem. I cant recall any point in the book where the author actually had a moment with the star nor that he could use any of eminems statements as ones that he heard first hand. Im a huge eminem fan but Im really bummed that I spent the money on this book

    Good person

    Eminem is a good person. Every one always mixes him up with his lyrics. He is a much differant person in real life than whats in his songs.

    I'm a huge Eminem fan, but this book made me tjink twice about him as a person

    I've known for a long time that Eminem came from a disadvantaged background and I had always felt sorry for him, and I thought that it was amazing that he became a rapper, but recently, I've been reading a lot of books about him and he's not turning out to be the innocent white boy I thought he was. This book makes you think twice about the Eminem you think you know and the real Eminem. This book was very well written and it was probably one of the best books about Eminem that I've read

    I think this product is very good. I read this book and I think

    I think this product is very good. I read this book and I think many parts were very interesting. The book was a little lengthy but had great detail. This book talked about every part of Eminem’s (Marshall’s) life. It tells about his struggling childhood, how he and his mother got along, meeting Kim, getting discovered and much more. When you read this book you will learn things about Eminem that u would have never thought was true. This book is based of basically all facts and a lot came from interviews with the great Marshall himself. If you’re a big Eminem fan or you want to know about him then you should read this book. This book has exclusive details of Marshall’s life that you can’t get in other books. In conclusion I think this product is very interesting and I enjoyed the product.
