The Book of Tyson (タイソン()(きょう)(てん)()()()()()()(), Taison Kyōten) is a book written by Tyson Hui Guo Rou.[1]


It contains non-violent[2] preachings that, according to her, will bring about world peace once everyone becomes her disciple.[1] Its contents are supposedly able to awaken a special power within the reader.[3] It is a very derivative work entirely, or almost so, made up of song lyrics. After reading it, however, Giuliano began to think that the evocative power of song lyrics makes it very effective and gripping.[2]


Succession Contest arc

In an exuberant mood, Tyson gives two copies of the bible to Izunavi and Giuliano. She suggests they read the book. According to her, when the entire world reads it, world peace would be achieved.[1]

Izunavi reads the first chapter in the book entitled, "Love will always triumph in the end ♥". Instantly disgusted by the first chapter, Izunavi stops reading the book, while Giuliano offers to teach him how to praise a book he hasn't read yet.[1] The following day Tyson asks them if they have read it, to which Giuliano responds by singing its praise while admitting that he, in fact, has not. Izunavi honestly admits he has yet to have the time to read it and the prince forgives him and promises that it will awaken a special power inside of them, so Giuliano salutes her and declares that his feelings are already evolving.[3] By the 10th day of the voyage, however, Giuliano has finished reading it and has been won over by it despite acknowledging it is a propaganda tool.[2]
