Waterstones Says

Love him or loathe him, there is no denying the immense sporting and cultural impact of Tyson Fury. Behind the Mask is the candid, combative memoir of a prodigiously talented but stridently outspoken and troubled individual, all recounted in the author’s inimitably dynamic style.

The extraordinary story of the rise and fall and rise again of Tyson Fury...

THE GYPSY KING.

A Manchester lad from Irish Traveller stock, born three months premature and weighing just a pound at birth, Tyson (named after his father's boxing hero) grew up to become one of the most unlikely heavyweight champions in history. This 'dream come true' soon turned to nightmare, however, as alcohol and cocaine abuse took hold and Tyson was stripped of his titles. What followed was the darkest moment of his life - detailed in this book for the first time - in which he came within seconds of ending everything.

THE PEOPLE'S CHAMPION.

Like all the greatest stories, though, there is redemption and Tyson defies all the odds and literally drags himself to his feet. 10 million people around the globe watched Fury fight Wilder in the biggest fight of the boxing calendar. Speaking candidly about his struggles with mental health, this is Tyson Fury as you have never seen him before.

A BRITISH ICON.

Behind the Mask is an unflinching autobiography from the greatest boxer of our time and a man who has demonstrated strength of a very different kind by conquering his demons.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Whoever wrote Tyson Fury's memoir….has made a competent and thorough job of it. It is an unusual, heartening story, nicely told.' - The Sunday Times

'The People's Champion.' - The Times

'The Amazing Real-Life Champion.' - Sylvester Stallone

'I didn't believe boxers could be role models, but Tyson Fury has changed my mind... This 30-year-old Mancunian has made us all think twice about the possibilities of redemption.' - Simon Kelner, Independent

'Tyson Fury has become Britain's most unlikely inspirational figure... the sight of a broken Fury caught a mood with the public. Never was the epitaph "People's Champion" more apt.' - Ron Lewis, The Times
