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.

    As a childhood hero, it's incredibly humbling to hear Mike's story. I was completely captivated and at times overwhelmed. Absolutely incredible story!

    "First 2/3 of book: 5 stars; Last 1/3 of book: 2 stars"

    The first two-thirds of the book were fantastic. After that, the book spent much too much time on his drug addiction after his boxing career ended. He was using, then sober, using, then sober,using, then sober...It went back-and-forth 20 times and with too many drug anecdotes. Also, he spent way too much time philosophizing on his views of life. The last third of the book really dragged, which is unfortunate because the first 2/3 moved well and was excellent. The reader (Joshua Henry) was terrific.

    "Mike had one crazy life"

    Mike Tyson has been my favorite boxer for a long time, if you're a fan of his than you will really enjoy this book. He slept with a lot of women and did a ton of drugs, book is full of his stories.

    I felt like the sex stories dragged on too much sometimes but it's his book and he felt like he had to tell the stories, the first half is better than the last half and it's worth the credit. Hope you enjoy the book.

    "Mike Tyson in the Raw"
    If you could sum up Undisputed Truth in three words, what would they be?

    Savage Raw Truth


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tyson. No doubt. He's always been an athletic idol of mine. I've always wondered about his personality in the early days and why he had an obsession with pigeons. Now I know why.
