Revue de presse

Praise for UNDISPUTED TRUTH

“A masterpiece … grimly tragic on one page, laugh-out-loud funny on the next, and unrelentingly vulgar and foul-mouthed. Reading Tyson's memoir is like watching a Charles Dickens street urchin grow up to join Hunter S. Thompson on a narcotics-filled road trip — with the ensuing antics captured on video by assorted paparazzi.” –Hector Tobar, Los Angeles Times

Undisputed Truth is raw, powerful and disturbing—a head-spinning take on Mr. Tyson's life…Unlike other sports memoirists, he doesn't pull punches, offering up slashing comments on people who were once close to him. His narrative reminds us of just how far he has come from his rough beginnings, and, in a way, how close he remains to them. He had a punch like a thunderbolt from Zeus, but there have been a lot of big bangers in boxing; Mike Tyson's came with a pulsating story line like few others.” --Gordon Marino, Wall Street Journal

“Parts of [Undisputed Truth] read like a real-life Tarantino movie. Parts read like a Tom Wolfe-ian tour of wildly divergent worlds: from the slums of Brooklyn to the high life in Las Vegas to the isolation of prison…. Mr. Tyson’s idiosyncratic voice comes through clearly on the page here — not just his mix of profane street talk and 12-step recovery language, cinematic descriptions of individual fights and philosophical musings, but also his biting humor and fondness for literary and historical references that run the gamut from Alexandre Dumas to Tolstoy to Lenin to Tennessee Williams…. A genuine effort by a troubled soul to gain some understanding of the long, strange journey that has been his life.” –Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“A hefty autobiography that might be the most soul baring book of its genre ever written … a fascinating look into a life that up until now had already been well chronicled … It’s raw and profane … but it is also quite funny.”—Associated Press
 
Undisputed Truth, which is, without a doubt, one of the grittiest and most harrowing memoirs I’ve ever read.” –Flavorwire

“Most readers are familiar with [Tyson’s] tumultuous life and career—the bizarre behavior in the ring, the sordid behavior out of it—but what’s most surprising about the book is the introspection and self-awareness displayed … it’s raw and profane but also smart and witty … A fascinating and frequently surprising autobiography.”—Booklist
 
Undisputed Truth, is the American dream writ large in raw detail: think Citizen Kane scripted by the writing team of The Wire…. [it] has a great American novel feel to it… Tyson could easily be a Tom Wolfe or Norman Mailer creation.” –Austin Collings, New Statesman

“[A] lively mixture of a memoir.” –Joyce Carol Oates, New York Review of Books

“Tyson was ever practised at delivering the early killer blow; and so it is with this gripping and indecently enthralling autobiography….Tyson always had a way with words – although much of the credit for this book must go to his ghostwriter Larry “Ratso” Sloman, who not only makes Tyson’s life read like an Elmore Leonard thriller, but gifts him with considerable self-awareness and a memorably pithy turn of phrase….recounted in gripping, punch-by-punch detail in prose pungent with the reek of blood, sweat and petroleum jelly.” –Mick Brown, The Telegraph (UK)

“Thrilling…addictive…Sloman brings Tyson's voice springing off the page with its often hilarious combo of street and shrink, pimp profanity and the ‘prisony pseudo-intellectual modern mack rap’ of the autodidact.” –Geoff Dyer, The Guardian (UK) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Touching and revealing 15 novembre 2013
Par John T C
Format:Relié
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 étoiles sur 5 Not for the faint of heart... 13 novembre 2013
Par B. Billerbeck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a tough read. Mike's had a tough life, but there is a lot of wisdom in his words. I honestly wondered if people who grow up like him, on the streets, practically feral, might prefer the jails because there is finally structure. It's a brutally honest look into a life so different from mine. Interestingly, we were born the same year, so all things considered, he just got the short straw when it came to parents. I am so glad to see how far he's come. His awakenings are hard-won. He can look back on such a harsh history (I think worse than "The Glass Castle" for upbringings) and see the light. Really interesting read and I've never watched a boxing match in my life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Baddest man on the planet writes the best book of the year 25 novembre 2013
Par J. Garner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
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 étoiles sur 5 60 yr old, white, mother of 5 (who used to hate him) LIKES MIKE!!! 13 novembre 2013
Par joy52 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I confess I am only on chapter 2. It was very hard to put this book down after starting it yesterday. I found myself thinking about what I would say in a review. So far, it is a great read. It is well-written in a style that lets Mike Tyson's own personality and the unique flavor of his experiences tell his story. This is coming from a 60 year old, conservative, white mother of five, who thought Mike Tyson a bad role model for the same reasons he did. I was the last person who would have wanted to read something by Mike Tyson. A few years ago after one of his well-publicized scrapes, I saw him do a couple of interviews and realized he was developing insight. Suddenly, I liked him. I was rooting for him. I still am. I wonder if he even knows how important his story is.
I will update this after I finish.

Finished it and still give 5 stars. Got reminded of why I did not like him and then reminded of why I like him now. What Cus taught about becoming a champ now is being applied to the next phase of Mike's life. I believe he can do it. This is absolutely a story of one man's very tough journey.

A great read. Now wondering who will play the young Mike Tyson in the movie. There is so much to tell, maybe it should be a series (on cable, for the language and subject matter ).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What a Life! 13 novembre 2013
Par LateNightShopaholic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This book was well written. Very touching and macho -- simultaneously. It was real. Tragic. Explosive. Significant. It made me appreciate Mike and see him as a human being. What guts it must have taken to expose so much. And what a relief it must be to say the things that you want everyone to hear. I loved this book. The writer did a great job. It sounded like Mike Tyson. A lot of people aren't aware that Mike doesn't speak like a hoodlum, despite his background from the streets. He's fairly well-spoken. The Howard Stern interview this morning 11/13/2013 on Sirius was incredible. I had to come and review but I dont want to give away what's in the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 you gotta admire Mike Tyson 13 novembre 2013
Par mistermaxxx08 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
one of the most honest human beings period. the most compelling Athlete over the past 30 years easily. Mike Tyson was the people's Champ and he has a realness about him which is so raw that it just moves you. this book pulls no punches and knocks you on your back. you will laugh, feel the emotion,hurt, pain and bitterness. the man had to deal with battling in and out of the ring. his money, his freedom and his personal life were all front row seat. before a internet and the various social media, you knew about Iron Mike and what he was going through and dealing with. so many stories and so much going on. what a life and what a story and the man is still so young and you would think he had lived an additional 40 years to his life.

he keeps it real and you gotta admire that about the man.
