The first in-depth ground-breaking book traces Marshall Mathersa!! rise to fame from the schools and workplaces of his native Detroit to global superstardom. From the depths of being a suicidal no-hoper through the redemptive alias of Slim Shady to eventual triumph as an unlikely rap star, Eminema!!s dark story is unflinchingly presented in this wide-ranging book. The author also lays bare Eminema!!s relationship with his much-hated mother, his teenage soul-mate Kim Scott, Dr.Dre, and The Bass Brothers who guided and inspired him from the age of fourteen. Continually reviled, sued and criticized, Eminem continues to be a major cultural force. The book comes right up to date with an analysis of Eminema!!s current success and his debut as a film star in the autobiographical 8 mile.
