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.

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.

Honest brutal truth

Honest and brutal truth of a man who had everything and then lost everything, he is not afraid to tell it exactly how he sees things and what he thinks of things, great story of coming from nothing to everything and can teach us how no matter what level you are at in life that it can all be lost so easily.
A great read

Wow!

Mike is a legend! I loved the audiobook. The story gets you captivated from the go. So many lessons, so many mistakes, successes, highs and lows! It was a binge listening I admit! And Joshua Henry, as a narrator did a great job, one of the best I’ve ever heard!

Such an amazing story of a man who once had it all

I grew up in the 80's and 90's when tyson was a beast in the ring and was knocking people out left and right in his prime....he was always known as a bad boy and a handful with the women.

It was really interesting to listen to how a man who earned millions in the ring was able to end up being in so much debt. It might of all been so different if customato (I am not sure if that is the correct spelling) had been alive through more of Tysons career. He achieved so much with a personal life that was upside down can you imagine what he could have done being fully focused?

There is a fair amount about his career in this book but there is much more about his personal life and how he blew all his money....He doesn't sugar coat anything he tells it like it is....he was violent, he mistreated women and abused drugs

This was a great listen and I have a lot more respect for Tyson after hearing his life story

Tyson

Very good book, especially to hear his side. To the people who took advantage of him and his money.the people that where there for him but didn't want his money just to be friends.

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!! 👊😉
