Eminem is the biggest music star in the world today, a rap phenomenon who's sold more than 57 million records worldwide, won nine Grammys, countless MTV awards and an Oscar for the song "Lose Yourself" taken from the soundtrack of his acclaimed debut movie "8 Mile". Since 1999, when he burst into the world's consciousness with the mega-selling "The Slim Shady LP", Eminem has revealed in outspoken detail every aspect of his tortured existence. The way he tells it in his lyrics, he's lived a life straight out of a Jerry Springer soap opera since birth. But how much of his music is inspired by the truth, and how much is poetic licence? Only one woman knows - his mother Debbie Nelson. And she says he's made up so many tales over the years that he no longer knows the difference between fact and fiction. Debbie has been spat on by fans, attacked and robbed at gunpoint on "8 Mile Road", and reviled on dozens of internet sites as the most hated mother in the world. But Debbie is still a loving mother, devoted grandmother and, she says, her son's staunchest support through a string of court appearances. And despite the lawsuits and the stinging lyrical exposures, she is still desperately seeking reconciliation with her former Mommy's boy. Debbie reveals a bitter-sweet story of a single mother who gave her son everything in an attempt to make up for his absent father and her own miserable childhood. She tells the inside truth about Marshall Bruce Mathers III, and tries to untangle the outspoken and enigmatic alter egos Eminem and "Slim Shady". It's a rocky road and Debbie does not try to conceal the facts. This is her open letter to Eminem, a loving reminder of how they once were, and an attempt to set the record straight and refute allegations of her own drug abuse and tell the real story behind some of her son's most famous lyrics. An absolute must for every Eminem fan, it reveals that there's much more to the story than his followers ever thought.

“Different to Expectations”

Before you click on the 'no' button, thinking me an Eminem hater (which I'm not) take a moment to read my review. This book is not what you would expect and was certainly not what I expected when I... More
