This book covers around 18 months of Phelps' life running up to and including the 2008 Olympics. I'm sorry to bring that up, but that, along with several stories in the book show that Phelps is a real person who makes mistakes and feels regretful about them.

This book covers around 18 months of Phelps' life running up to and including the 2008 Olympics. It's artfully done, and suspensful, even knowing that Phelps will ultimately win. You will learn a lot more about the world of Olympic swimming than about Phelps himself. Other than his superior swimming performance, he's a typical 20-something. The writing is clear and easy to follow.

Instead, the author takes us race by race throughout the entire 2008 Beijing Olympics, for a total of eight races/chapters. In each chapter it digresses to different parts of Phelps' life. In addition, each chapter has a different title geared towards achieving your goals. Many times this book felt repetitive.

This book was a nice and quick read. It is simply a motivational book by the worlds greatest swimmer: Michael Phelps. I was expecting more of a biography. Instead, the author takes us race by race throughout the entire 2008 Beijing Olympics, for a total of eight races/chapters. In each chapter it digresses to different parts of Phelps' life. In addition, each chapter has a different title geared towards achieving your goals.

Many times this book felt repetitive. It simply reinstates the same messages about setting goals, focusing and working hard to achieve them. Plus, I really didn't understand how many of the chapter titles stress that point in each chapter. It really felt like one repetitive message throughout the book. I also got lost many times throughout the technical points of swimming. You really need to be a hardcore fan to keep up with the different swim strokes, races, times, etc. (I guess Phelps underestimates the audience as most of us are not as familiar with swimming as he would like us to be).

The good part of the book is that it is not dragged out. Despite the points above, it is a brief and quick read. It is very manageable to quickly read through this book and get its overall message very clearly. I am one who loves motivation and inspiration, especially when it is given by someone that is very accomplished in his/her field. Therefore, if you want a quick reinforcing motivational tool, this book is for you. You can probably finish it in a few days or a week at most. Plus you'll get a glimpse at the life of probably the greatest swimmer in history.
Good recording and great inspiration for my age group competitive swimmer. Enjoy listening to it.
I really enjoyed this book. My middle daughter is an age group swimmer and just finished her 4th summer so reading about the experience of the greatest swimmer ever was a great way to pass time at the pool while she practiced or in between her races at meets.
Hey, if your tired, and want to read something nice. This is it.
I am not a swimmer, but I found Michael Phelps' story really inspiring, so I got this book to learn more about his journey. He talks about his races and competition in a lot of technical details (some of which I skipped) but also gives a couple of personal stories - e.g. about his coach and family. While I wanted to learn more about his motivation and how he decided on his goals, this is not really in the book. But overall, it was a great read. Very quick, too!
GREAT READING. MY SON HAS ADHD AND IT IS VERY INSPIRING TO US.
Great book
I really enjoyed this book. Even though I am not a swimmer, reading the details of times and splits..all the swimmer talk was very well written and something I enjoyed learning about. The little personal notes and things on Michael Phelps were nice and shows that his head still seems to be on straight.
