He gives an intimate portraitMoreFew stories in the real world are as dramatic as the rise and fall and rise of Mike Tyson. As former boxing correspondent for the N. Y. Times, Phil Berger had access to Tyson and his handlers as has no other journalist. He gives an intimate portrait of this superstar, someone he regards as a dangerously violent man who has as many people trying to get their hooks into him as he has millions. Berger chronicles the writers, sharpies and showmen who are the best and worst of boxing. He writes about the leading heavyweights of the years since Muhammad Ali, and of course the powers behind the sport - businessmen like Donald Trump and Don King, who are in their way as bloodthirsty and money-hungry as the fighters they manipulate. Including an update on Tysons conviction for rape and an assessment of his postprison career.
