About the Book
Michael Phelps is an American sports hero, perhaps the greatest Olympic athlete the world has ever known. His unprecedented eight gold medals in the 2008 Summer Olympics have made him a superstar. But his journey to Olympic immortality is every bit as compelling as his achievements in the pool. From learning to cope with ADHD to the real story behind the near-disaster months before the Olympics, the story of how Phelps became the greatest swimmer ever is told in full detail here for the first time.

The author, Bob Schaller, has known Michael and his coach for more than eight years and has extensively interviewed Michael, along with his mother, sisters and Phelps' coach and teammates. Filled with revelations, career statistics, photographs and insightful analysis of how Phelps achieved the impossible, this is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn the complete story behind the legend.
