A first autobiography from Mike Tyson, it’s both revealing and unflinching, recording how boxing gave him the chance to escape poverty, his talent taking him to the top. Then fuelled by drugs – and crime how it all went so very wrong. As Mike Tyson says, if you think you knew me, then think again.

Synopsis

Undisputed Truth My Autobiography by Mike Tyson

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 this, 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 unputdown-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.

About the Author

Mike Tyson is a former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles at 20 years, 4 months and 22 days old. Tyson won his first 19 professional bouts by knockout, with 12 of them occurring in the first round. He won the WBC title in 1986 after defeating Trevor Berbick by a TKO in the second round. In 1987, Tyson added the WBA and IBF titles after defeating James Smith and Tony Tucker. He was the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles, and the only heavyweight to individually unify them. Larry Sloman is the author of bestselling collaborative books with Bob Dylan, Howard Stern, and the critically acclaimed 'Scar Tissue' with Anthony Kiedis.
