"Michael Phelps the untold story of a champion" was not the book I thought I was getting. I was looking for the story of Michael Phelps road to the Olympics and I found this book. The way the book read was like a newspaper article. I did not enjoy it. The text was very un-fluid and choppy. The story line was there it just seemed as though it was a long newspaper article. I enjoyed the story line, learning what Michael and his family had to overcome to get to where they are today. The Phelps family is very tight and is an inspiration to all and in this book you learn how they got that way. This book was decent, just not the book I thought I was getting.
