Good overview of his life

Well voiced with consistent characterisation of the Marshall Mathers quotes. Does make you feel for the guy, living his life in the open in music and the media.
Not the best biography, but not the worst

En-n-me

Much of the story comes from television and magazine interviews. It's a good starting source for anyone interested in learning about what others have written about Eminem and not necessarily Marshall Mathews.
