Also try Beneath the Surface
on 30 December 2013
This is very similar to another Phelps autobiography I have read and i actually prefer Beneath The Surface as it has a lot more personal content and detail about how Phelps trained with his coach and became the Olympian he is today. However what is not to love about reading about an amazing athlete and how he trained to become what he is, so whilst only 3 stars from me others may enjoy if they are reading about Phelps for the first time. Inspiring story. My daughter is a young teen and is reading and it's fine for her to understand, Very simply written. There is a lot about swim times which could bore the average reader but of interest to those who swim. I'm also a Brit and it is a bit American patriotic in places but if he was a Brit I would expect nothing less!
