    An unorthodox way of looking at the life and career of Mike Tyson Eric Wilson does great job explaining how Tyson achieved so much fame, fortune, and tragedy He also uses excellent quotes and analogies to get his point across.

    Interesting read which has an organic feel to it Holloway s story has the tone of a person qualified to speak on the infamous life and times of the great Iron Mike Tyson, but I have to question his motives for writing the book Tyson has been very transparent and forthcoming of his pitfalls and bad habits, so I wonder why holloway feels the need to double back and speak on the same things from his point of view Life as mikes manager had to be very trying and he deserves his respect for helping Interesting read which has an organic feel to it Holloway s story has the tone of a person qualified to speak on the infamous life and times of the great Iron Mike Tyson, but I have to question his motives for writing the book Tyson has been very transparent and forthcoming of his pitfalls and bad habits, so I wonder why holloway feels the need to double back and speak on the same things from his point of view Life as mikes manager had to be very trying and he deserves his respect for helping secure the biggest contract in boxing history with showtime at the time but I would ve rather read a story explaining business moves and secrets based on his experience with a couple chapters dedicated to his time with mike as opposed to what the book offered Honestly it comes off as a jaded lover wanting to expose what had already been exposed All though i do enjoy the question and answer style of the book it is obvious through the authors tone he has a negative opinion of Tyson and he let his biasness bleed over into the pages

    A well written book by Eric Wilson that gives a good tale of the life of Mike Tyson and his former manager Rory Holloway I used he word tale because at points I do question if this is jst not a eye witness view point of a situation that he might not had fully understood at the time bieng that he was not using the same drugs as Tyson was.It does give readers an insight into his Tyson s career after he was convicted for rape Definitely a page turner and the best biography I have read this year.

    excellent book I just finished my advanced review copy and I understand some changes will be made to this book final version but I love it the way it is Raw, uncut, and at times very descriptive and figurative according to the story being told by Rory Holloway The author has great writing skills and it shines from the first page to the last The celeb stories were real cool And I like the parts about Rory Coming from the boxing world I always thought Rory was an a hole that cost Tysonexcellent book I just finished my advanced review copy and I understand some changes will be made to this book final version but I love it the way it is Raw, uncut, and at times very descriptive and figurative according to the story being told by Rory Holloway The author has great writing skills and it shines from the first page to the last The celeb stories were real cool And I like the parts about Rory Coming from the boxing world I always thought Rory was an a hole that cost Tysonthan he earned him but man was I wrong EXCELLENT BOOK

    Tyson has always been open about things that he has done in his life and for some reason allow people to pass judgement It was weird to have it done by a 3rd party witness to all the events but it did give it a very interesting perspective It is unique to have someone as crazy as Tyson to have had such a respectful family man as Holloway in his corner Holloway and author Eric Wilson have an intriguing new perspective on the life and times of Iron Mike Tyson rise and tragic fall so pick this 1 Tyson has always been open about things that he has done in his life and for some reason allow people to pass judgement It was weird to have it done by a 3rd party witness to all the events but it did give it a very interesting perspective It is unique to have someone as crazy as Tyson to have had such a respectful family man as Holloway in his corner Holloway and author Eric Wilson have an intriguing new perspective on the life and times of Iron Mike Tyson rise and tragic fall so pick this 1 up, it s worth the time

    Many books on fighters give a very limited and one sided view but after reading this you feel that you knowabout Mike Tyson than what the other books are offering He has been very open about things that he has done in his life and allowed the reader to cast judgement adding Holloway s perspective was genius Aside from concentrating on his fight career that we all know about he gives a fascinating insight into his private life before, during and after Tyson s fame and fortune.

  7. says:

    GOOD read maybe not a great one but definitely a new and interesting direction for author Eric Wilson At times I feel the story becomes a little too confusing between the lives of Tyson and his manager Rory but I also think maybe it was done this way to inspire people to read it a 2nd time I don t know if I will do that but it is a must have for any die hard Tyson fans, boxing fans,or sports book collectors.

    I just finished reading my advance review copy, and I understand that there may be a fewfinal edits so I will be fair with my review Overall excellent book however, I feel some parts can be trimmed down just a bit, coming from a sports fan Not a huge boxing fan but Mike Tyson is top 3 boxers of all time despite the record he ended up having The author did a super job, a very excellent project, a lot better than expected

  9. says:

    Excellent portrayal of the bizarre life on iron Mike Tyson I have met both Tyson and Rory Holloway and I think both have great personalities that make you pay attention to what they say So when they split many people including myself always wanted to know why Eric Wilson did a great job and I saw him in one of the photos up state New York in the 90 s with Team Tyson so its no wonder he was able to pull of such an epic sports chronicle Well done

    Review from my dad who I gave this book to as a gift he just emailed me this so I can send to the author I said I ll try to Pops Wow Rory This is a page turner I knew very little of this information and you present it in a way that works so well for me Half way through I m alternating from laughing out loud, to having my mouth drop open in shock I originally thought calling him a beast was over the top but no longer Enjoying this immensely.
