Summary
The key to Mike Tyson's unprecedented success in the ring and in overcoming the demons that success laid in his path was his relationship with Cus D'Amato. When the well-past-his-prime boxing trainer and 13 year old felon met, D'Amato saw his one last shot at glory and redemption via the young thug. This is the epic story of that five year relationship as well as a guide to the lessons D'Amato imparted that enabled Tyson to become the most devastating heavyweight in boxing history and, later, to achieve sobriety and intimacy with another person
