For years the world has followed his progress, from teen sensation in Sydney to bona fide phenom in Athens, and now as a living Olympic legend in Beijing with a peerless record of gold medals, more than any Olympic athlete throughout history. In No Limits, Michael Phelps - the greatest competitor we've seen since Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, or Lance Armstrong - will share with listeners the secrets to his remarkable success, from training to execution.

Behind his tally of Olympic gold medals 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. No Limits 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. Phelps's success is imbued with the perspective of overcoming obstacles and doing whatever it takes to realize a dream. As his coach, Bob Bowman, says, Phelps has made a habit out of things other people aren't willing to do. No Limits will show listeners just how he does that, and will inspire anyone to follow their passion straight to the finish line. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sohil Shah | 1/30/2014

    " This book is all about Michael Phelps' preparation to the Beijing Olympics and all of his events in the Olympics. It showed his thoughts of how he visualized the race and what he went through before the race up to him winning the race. The structure is in chapters. 9 chapters one for preparation and the rest for the eight races. I think this is for people from ten years and up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophia | 1/19/2014

    " This is one of my favourite books of all time. I have a real autographed copy signed out to me that I got from his swim camp. He is literally my hero, and as a competitive swimmer, there is no greater joy then seeing the rest of the world get excited about your sport. I'm glad that all non-swimmers out there got to see what swimming really is. It gave me the inspiration to jump back in the pool, knowing that anything is possible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 8/17/2011

    " I don't read many autobiographies, in fear of losing respect for the person in question. In this case, I gained a lot of respect for Phelps. He comes across as very genuine, hard working and kind while at the same time being honest about the few mistakes he has made. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill Campbell | 7/7/2011

    " I actually loved this book, which surprised me. I couldn't put it down, read it in 2 days. I am not sure whether I would have felt the same way if I hadn't been a swimmer in my previous life. Chris and I agree, it is a book we will have our children read when the time is right. "

    " What can I say? Micheal Phelps is phenomenal. I've wanted nothing more than to be in the Olympics and this was all the inspiration I needed. Sometimes it kind of felt like it was a look at what I can do book but it was worth it. Even if you don't love swimming like me, you should definetly read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krystal | 11/14/2009

    " I enjoyed this because I respect Michael Phelps and all he has accomplished. But there wasn't much to it. A nice travelogue, nothing life changing. And I want to know about Bejing. "
