"Shady Bizzness was disturbing and intense! It was like a good scary movie!" (People Magazine)
"It was brilliantly written!" (MSNBC)
"It's definitely a good read." (The Queen Latifah Show)
I enjoyed the story. I thought it was believable; however, it was definitely a memoir that could be true or completely false. I did think the narrator was a strange pick. Having an older White gentleman using hip-hop terminology was a bit weird.
I live in Austin TX. I light movies for a living. I read mostly non fiction. I enjoy rock climbing, skateboarding, bikes, rc helicopters, and music.
The whole book is basically about a body guard who didn't get paid what he thought he was worth. You won't learn anything new about Eminem from this book. The book is repetitive and boring, and the author is a bit self righteous. Don't water your time on this one.
As an executive protection professional, I frequently read the memoirs of those who have gone before.
There are many things to be gleaned from the experience of others.
Not so with this book.
Aside from the obvious grammatical errors, the author comes across as arrogant and whiny throughout.
He moans about how he is unappreciated and underpaid, how he works so much harder than everyone else ad nauseum.
The dialogue is inconsistent as well.
It switches back and forth between ebonics and articulate English in ways that seem like much of the dialogue was 'remembered' long after, when the author wanted to portray himself in a different light.
I would like to first start off and say I'm not a die hard eminem fan. He is good I like him but I'm not into like a lot of other people are. This book is filled and written by a disgruntled employee. Who seems to have been about to get fired for constant complaints and righteousness. It is 5 hours of this guy saying why he feels he is owed more then what he is getting. Makes you think why didn't he quit a week into work. It is garbage. Filled with " they are racial undertones" this is a black white thing. And then this guy gos on to say he is a man on GOD and is better then and I quote "the Jew and the white trash boy". Wich is racial in it's own right. This is what is wrong with America today I hop the author understands ( Mathew 5:20. ). He wants to quote the bible maybe he needs to re read it. Wow bro. Find another way to make money on your own not through other people. Horrible book.
THE GUY WHO WROTE THIS IS THE REAL DEAL.
YES, I JUST KEPT THINKING OF THE DEFFINITION OF "TRAILER TRASH"
WE ARE DOOMED.
What a load of rubbish, whining and whinging, didn't make it past the first paragraph! I didn't even want to give it one star but could leave this review without rating it.
