Mike Tyson coming out with memoir book

If it wasn’t a good week already with the news of Darryl Strawberry coming out with a new book, apparently Mike Tyson is getting in on the act, too!

Mike TysonFormer boxer MIKE TYSON is to publish a tell-all book about his eventful life.
The ex-heavyweight champ has written an autobiography detailing his time in the ring and the years following his departure from the sport.

The tome is also said to include controversial moments from his private life including his three year jail sentence for rape in the 1990s.

Tyson reportedly began writing the manuscript while he was in prison, asking his fellow inmates for advice, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.

The publication quotes Tyson as saying, “Me and my cellmate would read to each other at night. One night I would read out loud to him, the next night he would read out loud to me. And we would do that back and forth until the book was completed.”

I wish I could take credit for this, but I can’t. Here’s a headline on Fark.com about this story:

A must read: Tyson pens a tell-all. Book starts out powerful and amazing, gets unfocused and boring about halfway through, then scary and weird, ultimately fading into Bolivian

That’s freaking great.
