Raised in the Bronx slums, he fought on the streets, got sent to reform school, and served time in prison.
Trusting no one, slugging everyone, he beat his wife, his best friends, even the mobsters who kept the title just out of reach. But the same forces that made him a criminal—fear, rage, jealousy, self-hate, guilt—combined with Meet Jake La Motta: thief, rapist, killer. But the same forces that made him a criminal—fear, rage, jealousy, self-hate, guilt—combined with his drive and intelligence to make him a winner in the ring.
At age twenty-seven, after eight years of fighting, he became Middleweight Champion of the World, a hero to thousands. Then, at the peak of success, he fell apart and began a swift, harrowing descent into nightmare. Raging Bull , the Bronx Bull's brutally candid memoir, tells it all—fights, jails, sex, money—surpassing, in hard-hitting prose, even the movie that immortalized it.

I've heard it said that you wind up rooting for LaMotta by the end of the book. I did not have that reaction. I disliked him the entire time - a thief, murderer, rapist, wife beater is not exactly a sympathetic figure. But the memoir is brutally honest if at times self-pitying and well-written. The story is a compelling look at the self-loathing and masochism that drove LaMotta to become one of the greatest boxers of all-time and one of the f A remarkably good book about a remarkably bad man.
The story is a compelling look at the self-loathing and masochism that drove LaMotta to become one of the greatest boxers of all-time and one of the few men to ever defeat Sugar Ray Robinson.

While I did not root fo LaMotta, I did find myself intrigued by him as a person and remained interested the entire way through the book. Highly recommended! Jun 04, Clint Mccoy rated it it was amazing. Very intense.
This is one of my favorite books. To state the obvious:There is a movie based off of it with the same name and the movie followed this book closely. Anyway this was hard to put down. Glad he didn't hold back too much on the details of what went down in his life and it wasn't one of those "pity me" stories. I'm being vague about the details here. If you like the sport of bo Very intense.
If you like the sport of boxing then this is a must read. Mar 18, david-baptiste rated it really liked it.
The film turns the story into a Catholic allegory which transforms the Raging Bull from the realization that "I'm not an animal" into the Man of the Theater and Language who goes on stage to recite poetry by the greats as well as himself. The book has many strange redemptive moments of its own, especially one that opens and closes the tale. LaMotta--with Peter Maas--has a lighter touch than Scorcese, with a lot of laughter pervading some of the really tawdry and grim episodes.
