A bare-knuckled, tell-all memoir from Mike Tyson, the onetime heavyweight champion of the world—and a legend both in and
out of the ring.
Philosopher, Broadway headliner, fighter, felon—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 time—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 “to everything” 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, Tyson’s story is an inspiring American original.
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 Brooklyn’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.
