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.

Ended up abandoning the book, couldn't listen more

It's not the book for me except the beginning that described top boxers in the most intimate way - loved that. Increasingly, the story went in another direction.

Nobody deserves the marriage betrayal he got even though he cheated throughout the relationship. Shows even the toughest guys get conned sometimes just like the rest of us.

The rape case that landed him in prison, attributed in the book mainly to racism, seemed like a bad deal for everyone except a few well-paid attorneys.

One thing I liked about Mike, really liked, was that he is a fighter, not playing the role of a fighter. There's plenty to not like too but no denying the ability of this man to fight.

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.
