Nicole Anne Rogers about this book: "Sometimes you just feel tired, you feel weak. When you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up. But you gotta search within you. You gotta find that inner strength and pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up and not be a quitter no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse."
This is the intro to Detroit rapper Eminem's song, "Till I Collapse" off "The Eminem Show." Kim Mathers is forced to give herself this pep talk every morning while looking into her bathroom mirror, and there are some days she needs it more than others. She never really knows what each day will bring, or how many hoops she will have to jump through, as she is forced to deal with the daily drama and aftermath of her ex-husband's, Eminem, public personification of her. This book invites the public to meet the real Kim Mathers; wife, mother, aunt, caregiver and lover.
