Phelps dives right into book deal

August 23, 2008|From the Associated Press

Olympic superstar Michael Phelps will write a book telling the story behind his historic eight gold-medal swims just in time for the holiday season, Free Press, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced Friday.

In "Built to Succeed," Phelps, 23, will also cover his philosophy on training and competition, as well as his life being raised by a single mother and coping with an attention-deficit disorder, the publisher said.

The book is scheduled to be released in December.

Phelps became the winningest Olympian ever at the Beijing Games, winning eight golds to add to six previous Olympic first-place victories. He holds seven world records.
