Synopsis

In Built to Succeed, Michael Phelps - perhaps the greatest Olympic competitor the world has ever seen - will show us the secrets to his remarkable success, from training to execution. Behind his tally of Olympic gold medals - more than any athlete throughout history - lies a consistent approach to competition, a determination to win, mental preparation, and a straightforward passion for his sport. One of his mottos is 'Performance is Reality', and it typifies his attitude about swimming. Built to Succeed goes behind the scenes to explore the hard work, sacrifice, and dedication that catapulted Phelps into the international spotlight. Phelps will share remarkable anecdotes about family, his coach, his passion for the sport, and the wisdom that he has gained from unexpected challenges and obstacles. Highlighting memorable races and valuable lessons from throughout his career, Phelps offers candid insight into the mind and experiences of a world champion. Built to Succeed will inspire anyone to follow their passion straight to the finish line.

Format: Taschenbuch
Michael Phelps berichtet sehr persönlich und authentisch von vielen Erlebnissen und Begegnungen. Es ist gut zu lesen und spannend geschrieben. Zudem ist es sehr motivierend wenn man selbst Leistungsspotler ist. Aber manchmal ist es auch langwierig wenn er von vielen verschiedenen Schwimmern beichtet und deren ganze Zeiten und Vortschritte nennt... insgesamt sehr lesenswert denn man beginnt zu verstehen was er für ein Mensch ist und wie er tickt! Es ist auf Englisch aber mit Schulenglisch kommt man auf jedenfall auf den Sinn!

Stands on Its Own 26. Dezember 2008
Von I. Makarov - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
First, if you've read Michael's autobiography he published shortly after Athens Olympics, this isn't book's sequel. It doesn't claim to be, but you may think it is if you look through chapters' headings, as they're based on all events Michael swam in Beijing (autobiography as it is published now stops pretty much shortly after Athens). What that means is that some of the stories are repeated, but if you keep that in mind and ignore it, you'll enjoy all the new stories he shares.

As a former college swimmer and now a masters swimmer I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. It's well written, and gives you an idea of what it takes to get to the level that Michael is at. He's obviously gifted with a body well suited for swimming, but it was 99% hard work and effort that got him to the top where no other swimmer have been before. He tells you how he got there while also sharing other stories about his life outside of the pool.

This book also provides a chance for Michael to tell you more about Beijing experience. He was too busy during the Olympics to sit down and give a lengthy interview, and in a way, this is what this book is all about. For example, 12,000 calories a day diet that everyone talked about is actually a myth.

What always impressed me about Phelps was his focus and determination on staying on top of his goals. I have no idea how he was able to remain focused and execute to perfection every single stroke and turn in 17 races he participated in Beijing. In this book he shares how you can overcome distractions and remain motivated to reach your goals.

Finally, if you're into setting any kinds of goals in life, this book is a must read.

Not an autobiography 7. Januar 2009
Von L. Blum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am listening to the audio version of this book narrated by Holter Graham. I am really enjoying it but it did take me a while to get used to the format. Phelps and Abrahamson skip around a lot, but you have to realize this isn't Phelps' autobiography. It isn't "Then when I was 14, I tried out for the Sidney Olympics." There's no "This one time, in band camp..." moment. The chapters are headed with words like "Perseverance" and "Redemption" and the authors use Michael's various races to illustrate their point.

That said, there are a LOT of stats and figures and it is hard to keep them all straight, especially in an audio book. But it's really fun to find a particular race on YouTube and then watch it while listening to Michael (via Graham) narrate what is going on.

To those who say Abrahamson wrote the whole book, I say, "Funny I didn't see him in the pool. How does he know that Phelps was smiling to himself underwater on the final turn of the 200 Free in Melbourne?" It may be Abrahamson's words, but it is Phelps' voice. I gave it four stars because really nothing besides "To Kill a Mockingbird" gets five from me. OK, maybe "Kite Runner."

Great read 14. Januar 2009
Von K. Knight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you're looking for an inside glance at what was going on behind the goggles in Beijing, this is the book for you.

If you're looking for more of an autobiography, you want Phelps' other book (written after the Athens olympics) Beneath the Surface.

If you're a Phelps fan, or a swimmer (or just a fan of good swimming) you want both. There are a few stories that appear in both, but the vast majority of material is different.

This book is a fast read, and I feel that Phelps' voice comes through clearly. Both this and Beneath the Surface were very down to earth and easy to understand. At times the stories are a bit disjointed, and maybe some work could have been done to connect things a bit more clearly, but I don't think this distracts from the book overall. In fact, my only real complaint is that it's too short!

If you watched in awe this summer, are a swimmer, are a fan of the olympics or of athletes at their greatest level, pick up this book. You won't be disappointed.

Interesting, but not much of a personal voice... 3. Januar 2009
Von RonAnnArbor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a fast, interesting read. It does not have a personal voice though. While written in first person, it truly reads like his coauthor did most of the writing, and Michael added an anecdote here and there -- young people just don't "talk" like the language used in the book, which reads more like a scripted inspirational speaker's writing. Good for the library if you have a sports collection. Otherwise, his previous book "Beneath the Surface" covers much of the same territory using a better co-author who gets the "voice" right....I can say from personal experience (I live in Ann Arbor and have met and spoken with Michael on occasion) that the words here are heartfelt and true, but that his co-author did most (if not all) of the writing.

Inspirational-If you understand swimming 15. Februar 2010
Von Alyssa Tennant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am a huge Michael Phelps fan, and fan of swimming in general, but I still managed to get lost in the technical talk in this book. I found the overall message and story highly inspirational and very compelling. I loved reading about how Michael over came all those hard times to reach where he is, but every exact time, split time, and tons of names are mentioned that, yes are important, but get in the way of the message. I loved the book, some parts were work to get through, still love Michael Phelps, and if anything I left the book with a sense of "never give up on your dreams".
