Be sure to check out IRON AMBITION: My Life with Cus D’Amato by Mike Tyson
“Raw, powerful and disturbing—a head-spinning take on Mr. Tyson's life.”—Wall Street Journal
Philosopher, Broadway headliner, fighter, felon—Mike Tyson has defied stereotypes, expectations, and a lot of conventional wisdom during his three decades in the public eye. Bullied as a boy in the toughest, poorest neighborhood in Brooklyn, Tyson grew up to become one of the most ferocious boxers of all time—and the youngest heavyweight champion ever. But his brilliance in the ring was often compromised by reckless behavior. Yet—even after hitting rock bottom—the man who once admitted being addicted “to everything” fought his way back, achieving triumphant success as an actor and newfound happiness and stability as a father and husband. Brutal, honest, raw, and often hilarious, Undisputed Truth is the singular journey of an inspiring American original.
What an honest reflection on ones self and the courage to share it without fear of rejection
The pinnacle of self-awareness
Mike and his collaborator, Larry Sloman, did a fantastic job making the book embody the personality of Tyson. Asides the accounts of the his life, the language and writing techniques employed just gives it an aura that mirrors the actual person. It’s really difficult for a book to achieve this feat!!! The book invokes such a heightened sense of imagination in the reader that it almost feels like you’re right there with Mike in those stories. Great read!!
Mike Tyson life has so many layers! Can't wait to read it!
