    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 thrilling and ferocious boxers of all time - and the youngest heavyweight champion ever. But his brilliance in the ring was often compromised by reckless behavior.

    Story

    before writing this book. I was always a Tyson fan, and have NEVER believed he was guilty of the charge he was convicted on in Indiana. I was very excited about this book, so here's my take...
    There were about 10 hours of fascinating and enlightening recall of Iron Mike's life, but there was another 10 hours of recounting the who-what-when-&-where of sex, drugs, and alcohol. Book seemingly became a tell-all which I was not interested in and made Tyson's admissions and purported feelings in other portions of the book seem disingenuous, as the attempts to include every encounter with a woman or drug-fueled binge almost seemed boastful.
    I struggled greatly to finish the book because of this. All of these types of admissions were omitted in Gooden's autobiography, but he provided plenty to give you a full picture, and I felt that his book was better for it.
