Mike Tyson briefly relates his recent reading list.
(Excerpt) Read more at online.wsj.com ...
Does he dog-ear the pages so he can bite them off later?
Ask him next time you see him.
Who knew he was well read? Interesting.
I read this, good for him if he can plow through that stuff.
>>Ask him next time you see him.<<
I think I can get a bit part in “The Hangover 12.”
Can Mike even say Kierkegaard in one take? I know he used to have an interest in intellectual polemics, but when I see him these days, Mike looks burnt out and busted. He may just be playing to type.
I think you pulled someone’s chain.
Do not commingle Michael Vick with Michael Tyson, the are entirely separate individuals, flawed but individual! (Dog vs Ear!)
Whether he or his publicist is kidding, if you read the WSJ article listing favorite readings of 2013 by various celebrities and other nobodies, Tyson’s choice is the most and arguably the only interesting book among them, and I read the damn thing twice looking for hidden gems.
He's reading a collection of quotes, the equivalent of the Cliff Notes edition of philosophy.
As a philosophy major, I’d rather go 15 rounds with him in his prime than read Kierkegaard.

Mikeys tyson is a worthless POS. If you watched his disgusting comments gleefully broadcast on some BS show a few month ago about Sarah Palin you know everything you need to know about this guy. If it wasn’t for boxing he would be doing a life sentence by now for murder or something. He is not worth listening to.
I’m not one to make fun of him here....he happens to have a staggeringly vast knowledge of the history of boxing, and can very well be trying to enrich himself though a natural curiousity. I don’t know just how deep he’s able to go, but bully for him. I think that Tyson is being a bit underestimated here. His life was lived as a sideshow for so long with so much unfortunate actions listed against him,...who’s to say that he can’t improve on all of that? I’m giving him the benefit of a doubt here.
He may read Kierkgarrd that doesn’t mean he understands him.
We are all equally "worthless" in the sense that all of us are sinners.
About fifteen years ago, our church's men had a weekend retreat near Big Bear in SoCal and bumped into Mike while hiking. He was very interested that we were committed Christians, and he requested that we pray for him. We still are--committed, and praying for him.

Ya takes your jokes where ya’s can.
“We are all equally “worthless””
Uh no we are not. I am not a worthless POS or anything near it. But Mike Tyson is. You just keep praying for him because he isn’t doing anything I have ever seen to improve his chances with God. I don’t have to do anything to save Mike Tyson thats his problem.
Maybe if he stops going on national TV spewing disgusting sexuale inuendos about women like Sarah Palin he will heal and be forgiven by his creator. I don’t know that he has even asked for forgiveness. Not my job.
Your motive for praying is to improve your chances with God. What are your chances without your prayers?
It is because we are intrinsically worthwhile in His sight, because He created us in His image, and because "God is love" (I John 4:8), that "God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
For what it’s worth, I laughed too.
