Phelps, Michael, and Brian Cazeneuve. Champaign, IL: Sports, 2008. I can relate to this quote because for my most important meets i always wake up excited for them. The theme of the book is overcoming certain obstacles that stand in your way of greatness. This book is filled with the boring and pointless anecdotes from Michael that literally have no purpose or moral attached to them. For example I really wanted a dog. My mom pointed out it was too much responsibility. I once went to the pool and realised I have forgotten my hat and goggles AND??

Eight Olympic medals, including six gold and two bronze in Athens in 2004, Michael Phelps is the current holder of six world records, and seven gold medals at the 2007 World Aquatics Championships. Phelps is well on his way to his ambitious goal of "changing the sport of swimming." But despite Michael's pre-eminence in the pool, his story is not a swimming diary but a tale of adversities overcome and redemption through persistence. This new softcover edition contains a substantial update, as Phelps reflects on his life since his record-setting performance in Athens. The Olympic star reflects on his November 2004, DUI arrest. He recalls his experiences as a student at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Phelps also takes readers poolside for his record-setting 2007 performance in Australia and shares his thoughts heading into the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China.

Michael Phelps, the Olympic champion whose goal is to bring swimming to the forefront of the sports world-not just during Olympic years-tells his story in a candid, straightforward approach.

With the assistance of Brian Cazeneuve, staff writer for Sports Illustrated, he lays out the events leading up to his triumphs at Sydney, Barcelona, and culminating in his shining victories in Athens.

In between, he talks about his personal accomplishments over such things as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, family difficulties, and his initial stubbornness towards the coaching of Bob Bowman-the man who would "work him" and "work with him" to bring Michael to his full potential.

Swimmers will revel in Michael's persistence, training, and competitions along side such athletes as Aaron Peirsol, Ian Crocker, and the "Thorpedo" Ian Thorpe of Australia, whose superior timings drove Michael's competitive nature to go that extra step in his training.

An enjoyable read which takes some of the mystery off the life of a superstar, and proves that patience, endurance, hard work, and believing in yourself can only bring success.

Age 19 seems too young for an athlete to present his autobiography, yet Michael Phelps and co-author Brian Cazeneuve correctly gauge that Phelps' current fame makes the project viable. The tone of the narrative captures youthful wonder and enthusiasm for swimming; had the book come later, Phelps might become too jaded or overly analytic.

The authors let the chapters read like recorded oral narratives, with tangents, informal diction, corny jokes. The effect is enjoyable, as if we are listening as Phelps gushes over the aspects of his career. The book has almost no surprising revelations, but Phelps' views of races and competitors enhance our understanding of him and his accomplshments. He remains admirably respectful toward rivals who needle him. His comments (embedded in Chapter 21) on why he sought out races against Ian Thorpe reflect the best values of athletic competition and could be part of locker room pep talks in any sport. Even though we know the results, the eager style makes the narrative of the Olympics become exciting reading.

The book is thus more about personal enthusiasm than athletic insight. We do not learn much about the theories behind training methods, nor about race strategies, nor about the special aspects of certain swimming events. (For this sort of depth analysis of Olympic swimming, readers should see "Gold in the Water" by P. H. Mullen [2001] and "Champions" by Daniel Chambliss [1988].) And Phelps downplays subjects that he may see differently when he is older. One is his easy dismissal as inconsequential of periods when he did not see his father. Another concerns his hyperactivity; he admits the problem (as he has in news profiles) but avoids the thorny issue of treatments.

The final page, appended after his November 2004 driving while impaired incident, is a model of crisis communication. For its candor and blunt acceptance of responsibility, it is an example that older and younger athletes should emulate when they get into trouble.

I am a slow reader, but I am enjoying this book a lot.
Its not just about swimming, its a interesting inside view of USA's most beloved Gold Medal Swimmer Athlete!!!

Although this book leaves swim training to the coaches, this book offers the incredible journey of Michael Phelps from childhood swimming to the 2004 Olympics. As a college swimmer, it was a relief to read about his training and see similarities with my own.

He offers lessons for life that are necessary for any young athlete. Phelps had help writing the book, but his words and experiences are still there. This man has been through a great deal and it is incredible to read of his sacrifice in the name of achieving greatness.

It is written simply and easy to read. Inspirational and any athlete can relate. I love this book.

I am a very picky reader. It takes a lot for me to sit down and read a book. This book was very interesting. I really liked reading it, from Michael Phelps point of view. I think that is what really kept me interested in the book. I would truly recommend this to any true athlete.

This was a very interesting book. I did sometimes find myself day dreaming when reading his pr & wr times. I'm sure the times would be more interesting to a swimmer as I am not. But overall I thought this was a really good book.

Excellent book for jr high male athletes. Great easy read that will help any young boy learn about being a champion both in sport and in life. Sometimes too much swimming info, but that too is a learning experience. Read it with them and discuss it to help I promote the need to read.

I bought this for my 13 year old grandson which truly loves it. He has just gotten started reading it when I talked to him but he really liked it as far as he had read.
