Peter Heller is the author of Bad Intentions: The Mike Tyson Story. A sports producer for ABC News, he lives in Putnam Valley, New York and Boca Raton, Florida.From Library Journal:
The proliferation of publications focusing on successful boxer Mike Tyson continues with this comprehensive account of his life both in and out of the ring. The author, who is a television sports producer, concentrates on the characters and personalities that helped shape the man; they range from street toughs to tutors, trainers, business associates, and relatives. He particularly dwells on the players left behind (dumped)--the many who assisted in Tyson's transformation from neighborhood bully to world champion. Whereas Phil Berger's Blood Season ( LJ 6/15/89) focused more on the business battles and Jose Torres's Fire and Fear see Prepub Alert, LJ 3/1/89 on Tyson's highly publicized character traits, Heller's book presents the entire package, providing the most definitive account yet of the young fighter's life.
