Description

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.

    This book is very interesting and funny at the same time. Mike is an innocent person looking for guidance and people used it for weakness. I'm happy that he's doing well mentally & spiritually today.
  • Impressive work, about an incredible athlete.

    Mike gives us his life with unheard of honesty. Vulgar in the beginning but that was Mike in his beginning. You see Mikes viscous side and also a tender side. Poor guy was taken advantage of and didn't have the knowledge or experience to see it. Finally after a long battle with his demons he is broken, humbled and begins to learn what is truly valuable in life. Thank you for sharing your life with us Mike, after reading your book I can only love you more and know you will be a success in whatever you do.
  • Thank You Mike...

    I'm not even a book fan but Mike Tyson is a house hold name for most. I was very shocked to read what a messed up and complex life he has led. Really opens ones eyes when wanting to judge someone before knowing them. Definitely a person who has gone through hell and is still trying to piece his life back together. Def recommend this book to all.
  • Great book
