Publisher's Summary

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. Years of hard partying, violent fights, and criminal proceedings took their toll: by 2003, Tyson had hit rock bottom, a convicted felon, completely broke, the punch line to a thousand bad late-night jokes. Yet he fought his way back; the man who once admitted being addicted "to everything" regained his success, his dignity, and the love of his family. With a triumphant one-man stage show, his unforgettable performances in the Hangover films, and his newfound happiness and stability as a father and husband, Tyson's story is an inspiring American original.

Brutally honest, raw, and often hilarious, Tyson chronicles his tumultuous highs and lows in the same sincere, straightforward manner we have come to expect from this legendary athlete. A singular journey from Brooklyn's ghettos to worldwide fame to notoriety, and, finally, to a tranquil wisdom, Undisputed Truth is not only a great sports memoir but an autobiography for the ages.

    Story
    "There's more to him than I thought."

    I admire his focus, hard work and the honesty in his autobiography. He did quite a bit of study while in jail which gained my respect and he seems to be well read.
    However, he is a violent person which is what made him a champion. But, he couldn't compartmentalize his aggression and then was surprised when he wasn't believed and went to jail. Whether guilty or not, because of his hateful "kiss my ass" attitude in the courtroom, he had no credibility and then blamed the world.
    He has the natural reaction to the indignity of bigotry towards blacks that is alive and well today, Obama or no Obama, but I found him to be an extreme racist towards whites.
    Also, maybe someone can tell me why blacks can call each other the n----- word, but it's horrible for anyone else to. I think the word should be considered profanity. I should think blacks would want it extricated from our culture. But, African Americans keep the word alive and acceptable between themselves. It would be like my husband referring to me as "his c---". Horrible. I just don't get it.
    In the end, he lost my sympathy. He just couldn't see that a person will be persecuted if he can't respect the assault laws out on the street. As a people, we don't all live in the ring; he just couldn't remember that he had stepped out of it when the fight was over.

    "Couldn't stop reading."

    I finished this book in just over a day. I couldn't stop reading and listening. I've been a fan of boxing my whole life so naturally I've always loved watching Mike's fights. I knew a little about his personal struggles but not much. This book is powerful and raw. I would recommend it to anyone.

    "Tragic"

    I loved the book even though it's hard to listen to because it's so depressing. Tyson's story was interesting yet very tragic. I wish he could have got he's life together before losing all of his money. He made the same mistakes over and over again. Besides that, Joshua Henry did a great job narrating.

    "Outstanding"

    I couldn't stop listening..I have always been a fan of Mike Tyson,but now he's my hero.. Parts of this book took me back in time. I remember sitting in the barbershop in Vegas with him and my son waving to him when he drove through our neighborhood. He as always had some level of humanity even when he thought he didn't.
