Publisher's Summary

Love him or loathe him, ‘Iron' Mike Tyson is an icon and one of the most fascinating sporting figures of our time.

In this no-holds-barred autobiography, Tyson lays bare his demons and tells his story: from poverty to stardom to hell and back again.

In his first autobiography, ‘Iron' Mike Tyson pulls no punches and lays bare the story of his remarkable life and career.

Co-written with Larry Sloman, author of Antony Keidis's best-selling memoir Scar Tissue, this is a visceral, and unpause-able story of a man born and raised to brutality, who reached the heights of stardom before falling to crime, substance abuse and infamy.

Full of all the controversy and complexity that you would expect from a man who delighted as much as he shocked, this is a book that will surprise people and reveal a fascinating character beneath the exterior of violence.

If you think you know all about Mike Tyson, read this book and think again.

    "Tyson fan before and more after reading the book"

    I've always been a Tyson fan since I was a kid. He will always be one of the most exciting boxers to watch in my mind. I got to know more about him after reading the book and wish him all the best. Hope he finds peace and happiness--that I believe is just as cool as finding success in the limelight. Cheers!! 👊😉

    Story
    "An extremely open account of a rollercoaster life!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Undisputed Truth: My Autobiography to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the printed version so I cannot really comment, but the narration on this audio edition is excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Undisputed Truth: My Autobiography?

    I honestly couldn't specify one particular part of the book, the whole story is gripping. From Tyson's childhood memories, training, fights and his battle with women, drugs & alcohol. A fantastic listen!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    As I said above, it's difficult to identify specific parts, however, the accounts of his relationship with Cus D'Amato and how he built Tyson both physically and, probably even more so mentally, into the fighter who became the youngest heavyweight champion of the world was brilliant listen.


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

    Both! Tyson really has lead an eventful life and this book gives a "warts & all" account of it. He tells the stories of his off the wall life episodes and gives honest explanations of his mental state throughout. It has amusing and extremely moving parts.


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliant narration and an excellent listen!

    Story
    "Drags on"

    His ride from the bottom was very interesting to hear but then he drones on for 5 hours about utter nonsense. He is a little simple but his disire and discipline in training was incredible.

    "Awesome!"

    Tyson has had an extraordinary life full of pain, greatness. adventure, infamy and brutality. This autobiography tells it in all it's uncomfortable grizzly detail. But it's also a story of hope and its good to see him Tyson turning his life around towards the end. Recommended.

    Story
    "Wow! absolutely riveting!!!"

    I'm not a 'boxing fan' but do enjoy autobiography's from people that have achieved fame or success from all walks of life.

    Tyson's open, candid and frank self assessment is refreshingly down to earth. Yes, he's had it all & lost it (several times) but this book gives such an insight into what made / makes him tick and how he has chafed over the years through the experiences he's had.

    Not for the feint hearted - especially when it comes to women, drink & drugs but if you can see beyond that, there's never a dull moment.

    Brought a tear to my eye at the end - he's a living legend in my lifetime & his account of success and its trappings should serve as a lesson to everybody.

    Story
    "An Interesting Force of Nature"

    I enjoyed listening to the audiobook of Mike Tyson's autobiography. I also have the hardback book. A great boxer who lost the desire to box towards the end of his career. At his ferocious best the scariest heavyweight boxer of all-time. Despite his bad behaviour outside the ring: violence and drugs, Tyson comes across as an intelligent guy. Is he self-destructive or a survivor ? A difficult question to answer. Tyson reveals himself completely as if he is talking to a psychiatrist. Whatever your views on Tyson, he has always been a major force of nature, a great boxer, a bad man with a good nature, intelligent and always interesting. I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "Not much that you didn't know already...."

    It's a good biography and I certainly got the impression that the vast majority was genuine. But Tyson comes across as a complete moron, which I guess he is and was. And the religion spiel at the end was a touch too much. But worth checking out if you've got a small interest in the bloke....

    Story
    "The story of a confused man"

    I'm a huge fan of sports books and Tyson's was on my wish list for years; I wanted, however, a book about boxing: this book is more about how utterly off the rails poor Mike Tyson went in the aftermath of his early mammoth successes in fighting.

    There are occasional glimpses of pure sport - Tyson comments on how he has heightened senses when he exits a ring, but outside of that, the actual boxing truly takes a back seat, and pimps, drugs and women-as-a-commodity, takes centre stage instead. It's unfortunate as the ongoing stories of debauchery become so relentless that they lose any element of shock.

    This is a solid twenty one hours of listening time, so be prepared to commit. But ultimately, if you genuinely want to know more about boxing and Tysons place in history, you may want to think about a commentary book or another biography option.
