Ean Great recommendation! I don't read enough biographies and Michael Phelps has always struck me as an interesting character so I am looking forward to this one!

Interesting fact - Michael Phelps' birthday is June 30th.

Ean So I finished, finally! I really struggled with this one. It is just soo full of .... NUMBERS!! (Yep, I really should have expected that, huh) Each time I found myself wading through paragraphs of swim times my attention drifted away like a beach ball. So sad. I really wanted to love this one. I was expecting more deep insights into his will power and ability to dig deep and pull through to the finish line sort of inspiration but it didn't come across that way to me anyhow. How did you feel about this one?


RM(Alwaysdaddygirl) (alwaydaddygirl) | 543 comments Interesting. Almost done. Sorry.
