A bare-knuckled, tell-all memoir from Mike Tyson, the
onetime heavyweight champion of the worldâ€”and a legend both
in and out of the ring.
Broadway headliner, fighter, felonâ€”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 timeâ€”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 â€śto everythingâ€ť 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, Tysonâ€™s story is an inspiring American
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 Brooklynâ€™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.
