    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.

    Where does Undisputed Truth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was entertaining. I got the book on a whim, by the time I knew it I was nooked. I have not been hooked like this since"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" at first I downloaded the first part and was ready to call back to get my credit. BUt after I got hooked.......no way!! a great listen!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Undisputed Truth?

    When he realizes he is broke and he has to take care of his family.


    What does Joshua Henry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He read with passion.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me change the way I thought about Mr. Mike Tyson. There are times when you feel the pain and there are times when you crack up over what is going on. It is truly entertaining.

    HE IS BIGGER THAN LIFE!

    In this riveting landmark autobiography, which reads like a novel, Academy Award and Emmy winner Louis Gossett, Jr., masterfully transports us to 1840s New York; Washington, D.C.; and Louisiana to experience the kidnapping and 12 years of bondage of Solomon Northup, a free man of color. Twelve Years a Slave, published in 1853, was an immediate bombshell in the national debate over slavery leading up to the Civil War.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved this story... it was reminicient of Federick Douglass. The story is very well read, Gossett is great! I can hardly wait to see the movie. A TERRIFIC LISTEN!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Solomon is my favorite character because when he was in charge of the slaves he found his way around the beatings.


    What does Louis Gossett, Jr. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His tone of voice makes everything come to life.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who into the submissive/dominator sex and even then the storyline is not that interesting. I expected a better story....If I had read the actual book I would have fallen asleep because it is boring


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A mystery thiller or sci-fi thriller.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator is reading the book there is no detraction.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment there was such an uproar over this book I expected more action, adventure or drama.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt like if I used my 3 credits in vain. I regret my choice.
