Mike Tyson Bears All in New Memoir

tysonMike Tyson’s new memoir from Penguin’s Blue Rider Press Undisputed Truth comes out next week. In the book, the heavyweight champion dishes out his life story sharing his history of violence, drug addition, sexual exploits and what life was like in prison.

The book is written in Tyson’s voice, though Larry Sloman is credited as the writer.

The Washington Post more:

And though things might be better these days in Tyson’s world, he constantly warns that he’s not far from slipping off the edge, or slipping back into a strip club to party with drugs and women. ‘Sometimes I just fantasize about blowing somebody’s brains out so I can go to prison for the rest of my life,’ he writes. ‘Working on this book makes me think that my whole life has been a joke.’
