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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Gut Wrenching"

    An amazing story of one the most interesting heavyweights of our generation. The excess is jaw dropping, the honesty sobering and failures regrettable. This is a tragedy. Tysons self loathing, rage, drug / alcohol dependence are all revealed in splendid candor.

    He doesn't inspire pity. He conducted his personal life like he fought, as if every round was his last. Constantly swinging for the fences. I am glad he has found respite for now.

    "Very sad but interesting"

    Makes you go through a range of emotions as you hear his story. You start feeling sad for him and think that you will eventually hear some form of hope due to all of the craziness he endured growing up. Hope did show up towards the middle of the story and Mike felt and acted differently about himself for awhile. Then (once his hope died), in the remaining of the story, you hear him going through the motions of "surviving" again with a little hope still remaining. After hearing his story, all I want to do is pray for him.

    "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.

    I rarely write reviews. I enjoyed this book from start to finish. It's surprising, incredibly honest, entertaining and educational. One of the best I've ever read. It's making me want to find more just like it. Wow. Just wow.
