One paragraph he appears very profound and extremely enlightening whilst the next he relapses into a barrage of blaming everyone but Mike Tyson.
Tyson was one hell of a boxer and he had all the ring skills (he could slip punches as well as throw them with intent) but I'm still not sure what kind of man being he is. Perhaps it depends on what Mike Tyson you meet on the day of what chapter you read.
Although you learn the patten quite quickly (relapse follows relapse), it was an enjoyable book but I'm pleased to finish it.
I hope he finds his peace.
Mike appears to be the product of his childhood and tough adolescence. If his writings here are accepted on face value, he's been as much a victim as a victimiser.
A phenomenally gifted and dedicated athlete (at least dedicated in the early days) Mike's legacy should have been even brighter than it undoubtedly always will be in the world of boxing- if he hadn't lost his mentor Cus so early in his career I can't help but think things may have been different for him.
The book is perhaps the most brutally honest biography I have ever read. For this alone it is worth buying.
To seemingly become a fly on the wall to Iron Mike's personal development as a boxer and to gain insight into his life of crime and harsh upbringing in the early days is another reason to consider purchase.
Mid way through the book I was compelled to rewatch some of his best moments on YouTube (maybe one day we will have e-books intermingled with the authors voice as an option and access to visual clips all in one package when we buy our books in a few years time). Iron Mike was truly formidable and the story that unfolds provides insightful insight into what makes a champion and ironically what contributes to his fall.
I was particularly fascinated by the insight given by the strategies and physchological shenanigans of his mentor Cus D'amato. Without his input and the chain of events that led to Mike Tyson's involvement with him there would have been no champion (which gives us food for thought as to all those out there who never did manage to reach the extraordinary potential to which they were capable).
A fascinating read. A jaw dropping read in places. Funny, at times tragic, but to its credit honest and ultimately entertaining.
Mike Tyson has packed more living into his life than most and whether one ultimately liked the man or not, this book captures a most interesting life and fully justifies the rave reviews.
Did he rape or not rape? User or used? Violent perpretrator and victim of his upbringing? Or monster, rapist, animal?
Mike Tyson appears to lay his soul bare and the reader has enough scope in this honest biography to form or strengthen an opinion.
Five stars if you are a boxing fan or a fan of Iron Mike Tyson. Four stars plus if you are coming into this biography with little knowledge of the famous . If you hate the man I would still give it four stars.
People are complex and Mike Tyson especially so. For me, I came away understanding more about the man. I enjoyed his company and marvelled at his formidable boxing legacy but was left wary of his violent potential and capacity for self loathing.
When Tyson shook up the world by becoming the youngest heavyweight champion my friend called him an ' awesome animal' - such was his ferocity.
On reading this biography I feel compelled to conclude my friend summed it up about right...
