I absolutely LOVED this book and highly recommend it. Being a Mother, I took alot away from this book...advice, ideas and mostly the fact that the Phelps family is an ordinary family just like you and I. They go through ups and downs and Debbie proves that it's possible to make it through it all. I found this book motivational...again, more from a Mother standpoint. Very enjoyable.

I read a lot of biographies and this is a very good one. It's about so much more than Michael.

I struggled to get through this book, and it was not what I expected. Much of the book is about the author's young life in high school, dating, etc. which was quite boring, and not unlike millions of other young people. There was, in my view, way too much emphasis on that and way too little on Michael's incredible accomplishments. Also, the author mentioned that her one daughter was named after the highest mountain in the United States, Whitney. The highest mountain in the United States is not Mt. Whitney in California, it's Mt. McKinley in Alaska.

Debbie Phelps shows us how she always puts family first and still manages to be a successful person in her own right...She is an inspiration to all of us mothers out there as well as teachers. She reminds us what it is like to be a truly remarkable human being by working hard, caring for everyone, and living life to the fullest while sacrificing her time for her family...I'm glad she chose to share it with all of us...
