Publisher's Summary

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 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 unpause-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.

    Story
    "An extremely open account of a rollercoaster life!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Undisputed Truth: My Autobiography to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the printed version so I cannot really comment, but the narration on this audio edition is excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Undisputed Truth: My Autobiography?

    I honestly couldn't specify one particular part of the book, the whole story is gripping. From Tyson's childhood memories, training, fights and his battle with women, drugs & alcohol. A fantastic listen!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    As I said above, it's difficult to identify specific parts, however, the accounts of his relationship with Cus D'Amato and how he built Tyson both physically and, probably even more so mentally, into the fighter who became the youngest heavyweight champion of the world was brilliant listen.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both! Tyson really has lead an eventful life and this book gives a "warts & all" account of it. He tells the stories of his off the wall life episodes and gives honest explanations of his mental state throughout. It has amusing and extremely moving parts.


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliant narration and an excellent listen!

    "Why didn't he read it?"

    If Mike Tyson had read it himself I would have enjoyed it much much more.

    Story
    "Annoying and self-pitying"

    Ego all over the show and it felt more like Mike Tyson’s manifesto at how to manipulate women by sounding as insincere as possible. I hated the sympathetic voice adopted by the narrator as he tried to give Mike a ‘soft side’ - when it’s pretty clear that he cares for nobody but himself. I stuck with it to the end because I wanted to hear his reasons for becoming vegan... surprise, surprise it was nothing to do with ethics but all about what he could get out of it... and, it was because of a woman. Whilst the book did everything it could to attempt to make you feel sorry for Tyson, I couldn’t help but think that he made most of the choices himself and only had himself to blame - more often than not led by his ego. At 20 odd hours I really wouldn’t go there... and, if you’re a Tyson fan - like I was - beware... your childhood memories may be made to feel shitty.

    "superbly presented and narrated"

    This is how books should be read. The way it's read adds 3 stars. A great insight into a hard life, no glamour and little glory. It is a great story. The boxing is almost a subplot to addiction and growing up in the unmerciful society that is poverty in the USA.

    "Excellent "

    What a fantastic and honest account of the life of a fantastic boxer. I found myself stopping the audio to rewatch some of the knock out fights in the book. One mans dream to be the best at his trade!

    Must read

    "Tyson fan before and more after reading the book"

    I've always been a Tyson fan since I was a kid. He will always be one of the most exciting boxers to watch in my mind. I got to know more about him after reading the book and wish him all the best. Hope he finds peace and happiness--that I believe is just as cool as finding success in the limelight. Cheers!! 👊😉
