Overview

'Tyson and I: a journey through life and anger' is part biography of the former undisputed heavyweight champion, part autobiography of the author's own life and an examination of addictions, anger and destructive relationships, interspersed - incredibly - with humour!
The abusive behaviour and anger-management problems of the author are compared with the violent rages and anti-social traits of the iconic heavyweight boxing champ and their conflicting reasons for deviant behaviour are examined and parallel lives contrasted via Tyson's in-and-out of the ring escapades and the author's own journey through legal and illegal means of employment, encompassing debt-collecting, massage parlours and petty crime.
It's also an examination of human frailties and harmful reactions to life's disappointments but told from a perspective of humour which lightens the violence, mayhem and sex-and-alcohol addictions of the protagonists.
The book details events from 1986 to 2007 and covers the highs and lows of Mike Tyson's sensational boxing career and turbulent personal life and the transformation of the author's psyche, via a period of alcohol abuse and violence, through life-changing analyses of their respective actions and their root causes.
The book investigates racism; links between genetics and learned behaviour; the effects of childhood incidents upon the adult mind and the ability to learn to understand and control previously debilitating emotions.
Ultimately, this book can be viewed on many different levels; as an overview of the career of one of the iconic all-time greats of boxing; as a guide to dealing with anger-management issues; as an examination of race in today'ssociety; an honest analysis of destructive addictions or, simply, as an enjoyable and amusing read.
