Alot of unneccary details that seemed like a filler. No insight in the great mind of a competitor . It was a dull narration of his races and college days. It never picked up beyond a diary journal. Do not recommend.
What did you love best about Beneath the Surface?
It gives me a good idea on the upbringing of a man I admire as well as the making of a star.
Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Phelps and Brian Cazeneuve ? Why or why not?
Have you listened to any of Marc Cashman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I loved the way he connected with his friends and family despite rising to an iconic status. His moments during and after the races, the way he got pumped up and delivered in the pool are great moments.
Any additional comments?
Utterly disappointed with the promise of the book. The authors bring a sudden end to the story with Phelps' entry in Beijing and leave it at that. I was looking forward to his story in Beijing which really made Phelps an icon. I mean 8 gold medals is no joke and there is not a word on that. Most importantly, the book carries the words 'Includes London 2012' on its cover. What a shame. There is no word on Beijing (2008), let alone London (2012). Disappointed to the core that Audible let this pass without ratifying the content and whatever it promised on its cover.

at first i thought the narrator was boring. but the more I listened to it, the more I liked it.
an incredible story of Michael phelps overcoming his challenges and reaching his goals.
I wish that this book had the Brazil Olympics. I know the book does, they need to update the audio. I was disappointed that this didn't include the 2016 Olympics.
