IT tells you something when Mike Tyson — the 'baddest man on the planet' — pays Dorian Yates what can only be described as a glowing compliment. They crossed paths during one of Yates' many trips to the mecca of bodybuilding, Gold's Gym, in Las Vegas during the s. That was pretty cool coming from Tyson. Such was the regard in which Dorian Yates is still held by anyone with a remote interest in lifting weights or constructing their physique. Indeed, the actor Jason Statham sought out Yates during the after party of Mickey Rourke's premiere of 'The Wrestler' in to tell him what a big influence he had had on his own training. The revelations within this book run deeper than gushing praise, however, including a brief mention that the late Michael Jackson used to come over to the house of Lou Ferrigno — who rose to fame as the Incredible Hulk in the s TV series — in the early mornings to train in his garage. Much of Yates' story is told from the voice of its co-author, Kaspa Hazlewood, with sections of it in first person by the man himself.
