Kurzbeschreibung

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.

Mike Tyson ist ein Phänomen. So ziemlich jeder Mensch kennt ihn, und so ziemlich jeder hat eine (schlechte) Meinung von ihm. Diejenigen, die sich im Boxsport auskennen wissen dazu noch, dass er einer besten Schwergewichtler aller Zeiten war. Das er dabei aber keineswegs auch einer der erfolgreichsten war hängt mit seinem Leben außerhalb des Sports zusammen.

Nun veröffentlicht der 47-jährige gefallene Superstar seine Autobiografie. Entstanden in mehreren Interview-Sessions, aufgeschrieben vom Journalisten und Autor Larry Sloman, ist "Undisputed truth" die ganze Geschichte eines unglaublichen Lebens.

Als Prolog wählte Tyson (oder Sloman) den Moment seiner Verurteilung wegen Vergewaltigung im Jahr 1992. Wahrscheinlich das einschneidendste Ereignis in Tysons turbulentem Leben. Anschließend geht es strikt chronlogisch weiter, zunächst also mit seinen Jahren als Kind und Jugendlicher im Ghetto - verlassen vom Vater und vernachlässigt von der Mutter. Tyson erzählt hier offen und reumütig von seinem Leben als Kriminellem, liefert aber gleichzeitig durch die Beschreibung seiner katastrophalen Familien- und Lebensverhältnisse auch eine Erklärung, wenn auch nicht Entschuldigung, für die Entwicklung, die er in diesen prägenden Jahren nahm.
Es folgen die Jahre unter der Ägide der Boxlegende Cus D'Amato. Der alternde Box-Mentor nahm den jungen Tyson unter seiner Fittiche und brachte ihm alles über das Boxen bei. Dabei legte er ganz besonderen Wert auf die Psychologie und das Verständnis für die Sportart.

Mike Tyson's story will be told for as long as the earth remains but no account of his life would be as deep and moving and as sincere as he would tell it himself. There are at least two ways to live; how to live and how not to live. This book shows both. From the "how to" of being the world's best at your craft and the "how not to" lose sense of the true essence of it all. Recommended for every young person who has a global vision. My best read of the year and I have read a lot this year. Wow!

Mike Tyson's Undisputed Truth is a well written work that gives a good account of his life in ways that have never been told before. It gives the reader an insight into his character,motivations and actions in a way that makes him truly human with vulnerabilities, strengths, passions and other positive attributes. It is a page turner and probably the best biography or autobiography I have read in a while, or perhaps Disciples of Fortune that I read a while ago. There are tons of lessons to learn from this, especially on the consistency part, despite all the distractions that came his way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Baddest man on the planet writes the best book of the year 25. November 2013
Von J. Garner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The day this book was released, I read an excerpt posted somewhere or another wherein Tyson strangles Don King from the back seat of a limousine that King is driving. That sold me - I thought I was going to read a couple hundred pages of Mike Tyson telling insane stories. What I got was immeasurably better.

This book is Mike Tyson's life story, in Mike Tyson's words, as told to a writer. It might not be the undisputed truth, but it is his truth, and it's his entire truth. It is brutally, unforgivingly honest, and while he has few kind words for the likes of King, Robin Givens, and Desiree Washington, no one fares worse in these pages than Tyson himself.

Whatever you may think of Tyson, he is without a doubt one of the most fascinating sports figures of the past hundred years. He's a study in contradictions: a terrifying boxer with a temper that one could charitably describe as "mercurial" and yet he speaks softly, almost effeminately, with a lisp. The man said he was going to eat Lennox Lewis' children and praised Allah in the same sentence. He was paid tens of millions of dollars for fights that often lasted less than one round, and was bankrupt within ten years. Of course this guy's story is going to be great.

But the two episodes in his life that he's most known for, his tumultuous (and allegedly abusive) marriage to Robin Givens, and his rape trial after a night with pageant contestant Desiree Washington gone horribly, irreversibly wrong, aren't glossed over. At all. If anything, he talks about them - the trial in particular - in detail that's simply uncomfortable. And it has to be. If he's to have any absolution, any redemption in the public's eye, he has to be able to tell his side of the story for those who want to hear it, those that wonder if perhaps his in-ring persona was unfairly turned against him.

Undisputed Truth spends many, many chapters on how that persona developed, from both his cruel childhood on the streets of Brooklyn, to his being taught by Cus, the only father figure he'd ever known. Tyson's relationship with Cus is a well-known and oft-romanticized slice of boxing history, and the realization that everything that he learned from his childhood and from Cus that made him the tremendous fighter that he was being precisely what ensured his time at the top was so short and why he was so ill-prepared for life as Iron Mike had to have been painful to come to and write about.

Whether you find Tyson as fascinating as I do, or want to learn more about the man behind the glove (and there's much, much more to him than I expected), or just want to know what in the world he was thinking with that tattoo, you absolutely must read this book. Don't expect 500+ pages of back-patting. All too often, memoirs are just a remembrance of happy times, rough patches smoothed over or omitted entirely. It's refreshing to read someone so well-known write something so unflinchingly honest about himself. This dives headfirst into the realm of absolute self-loathing. However much you might despise Mike Tyson for some of the things he's done in his life, he despises himself so much more for them.

I want to think that this is the time he gets it right. That this is the time he has another chance and doesn't throw it away. That he's able to wipe away a little of the stain from his legacy, to be able to provide for his family, to find some peace. After reading his story, I'm not sure, but I'm rooting for him. Just like the old days.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A non fiction blockbuster! 28. November 2013
Von Dube - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Wow!
Open. Raw. Real. Mike Tyson tells it like it is.
You hear him. Feel him. Totally.
He takes you to the darkest depths of his soul and bares
his demons for all to see. Don't be surprised if you find yourself routing for him the darker the story gets.

What i loved about this book is it's not sugar coated for readers to sympathize with Mike Tyson.
It's told with brutal honesty that somehow still manages to draw you in.
I had withdrawal symptoms every time i put it down.
I just couldn't wait to get back to it.
There's no dull moment from the first word to the last.

I even found myself laughing out loud in some sections because Mike Tyson can pack a humorous punch too.
It's the best biography I've read and I've read many.

Buy it. Read it. It'll stay with you long after you've finished reading it.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Honest, unintentionally funny, brilliant, and heartwarming 1. März 2017
Von Ubad Olowolowo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is hands down the best autobiography I have ever read. I heard the rave reviews, but I never ever expected it to be anything like this. I couldn't put it down. My earliest memory of Tyson was playing Mike Tyson's punch out on the Nintendo back in elementary school. He was almost impossible to beat. There was a code that I still remember to this day that you put in to go straight to that fight with him. If you pick the game up its 007-373-5963. You'll thank me later. I was just a kid but I remember being mesmerized. In my childish mind if he was that hard in a video game to beat he was impossible in person. I started following his career and life and he grew to be larger than life to me. His humble beginnings, no quit, no surrender attitude was infectious. Still to this day he is by far the number one celebrity that I would like to meet. After reading this book, multiply that statement by a million.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Tyson Scores a Knockout! 16. Januar 2017
Von kone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a rare boxing biography indeed! Mike Tyson holds absolutely nothing back. It's totally unfiltered and will shock you. Tyson is brutally honest in retelling his sordid past of sex, drugs, alcohol, and fighting in and out of the ring. It's a shockingly honest and clean biography where nothing is whitewashed to make him look good. It's Tyson warts and all!

From his dysfunctional childhood in Brooklyn to Cus D'Amato, to his heavyweight championship to his rape conviction, to his comeback, the ear biting incident with Holyfield, his decline, and his life after boxing, its all here, all unfiltered, all Tyson.

I've never read a biography so brutally honest and self-searing. Tyson talks about his successes and failures. He reveals his own self-hatred, his attempts to clean up his life, and his uncertain future with wife Kiki and family.

I was thoroughly impressed with a writing so honest and so revealing. "Undisputed Truth" is the life of Mike Tyson. I think the reader will be amazed at the frenetic, hedonistic person Mike Tyson was and is. His dark side is monumental, his honesty is impetuous. He's Mike Tyson, heavyweight legend and scared little boy imprisoned in a body made for dominating others.

The final epilogues going forward in the life of Mike Tyson are just as enlightening and compelling as the rest of the drama that is Mime Tyson.

Highly recommended. Not for the faint of heart!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Tyson Writes Like He Boxed...He Doesn't Hold Back Any Punches 10. Juni 2014
Von HuntleyMC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Mike Tyson does not hold back any punches in his autobiography Undisputed Truth. As with any autobiography it is questionable of how much is truth and how much is posturing to make the author sound better. When Tyson discusses his 1992 rape conviction, he still claims his innocents, and says that he was railroaded by the judge and prosecution providing many opinions that agree.

The first quarter of the book is very interesting focusing on Tyson's childhood in Brownsville, Brooklyn, New York. Tyson also goes very in-depth on his relationship with Cus D'Amato. I found this portion of the book very interesting because I was very young at the start of his career so I don't remember a lot of the back story of Tyson. All I really remembered was the fights ending almost as soon as they started. The reader really learns that D'Amato was more than a trainer to Tyson, but a father figure and his words act as a guidance through life decisions.

Tyson gives an inside look at the relationship and marriage with Robin Givens. Of course, this is one of the section where it could possible be a, "he said, she said" story. I'm sure that she touches on the relationship in her book, Grace Will Lead Me Home. Tyson also discusses his early years with Don King as his fight promoter. Tyson admits that he underestimated James "Buster" Douglas in Tokyo and then explains trying to deal with the loss.

Finally he dives into the story that most non-boxing fans remember Mike Tyson for the rape trial. Tyson goes into detail about the events surrounding his relationship with Desiree Washington and than being charged with rape. He also shares his thoughts, along with supporting legal opinion, on how his trial went wrong. Tyson also shares in this section about his prison years and there was very little celebrity favoritism going on for him.

Tyson leaves Don King after finding out King has been robbing him of millions of dollars. Against the wishes of his lawyers he files for Ch. 11 while a lawsuit is pending against King for the money owed to Tyson. Even thought he has filed, he wasted over a $100 million, he keeps living life like he has unlimited access to money. Tyson goes very in-depth about his coke usage during this period of time and he also travels the world on other people's money because they want to hang with the Champ. Cocaine is not Tyson only addiction but so are women and during this time Tyson is constantly finding himself involved in legal issues mostly involving unfounded rape allegations.

Finishing the book became a chore because Tyson decides, among other things, to discuss his opinion on religions, the different rehabs he has been to and the process of AA. He also shares the tough story of his young daughter dying and how this made him appreciate his other children more.

Over all this was an interesting read. I would recommend it to fans of boxing, pop culture, or tragedies. I remember, as a kid, jokes were often made about the intelligence of Tyson but I think that this book shows there is more to Tyson then many people think. He was a student of boxing and also many other things. D'Amato had him in a mind set for each match that Tyson carried throughout his career that gave the wrong impression to fight fans.

One note about the book. I read this in e-book format and at the end it had a Lexicon for some of the words Tyson uses in the book. I feel this Lexicon should have appeared at the beginning of the book to give readers a heads up, but honestly his reason, and definition, for using a shortened version of the "N-word" does not change the word in my opinion. Tyson REALLY enjoys using a version of the "N word" A LOT. I understand that this is part of Tyson's everyday vernacular and that is why it is included but I also wish, and maybe they tried, that the publishing company would have tried to limit or eliminate the word from the book. Even at one point when discussing his involvement with the Muslim religion Tyson talks about not using the word or calling women "bitches" but he constantly uses it anyways.
