Oh we knew it would only be a matter of time – and today they finally announced it:

Armed with the new eight gold medals around his neck – Olympic uberstar Michael Phelps is going to write a new book.

“BUILT TO SUCCEED” will be published by Free Press, an imprint of Simon and Schuster this December - just in time for the holidays.

Agents and publicists are promising the book will reveal the secrets of Phelps’ success and go behind the scenes of his approach to training, competition, and winning.

The 23-year old swimmer/author will use his experiences at these Games to include anecdotes about his family, his coach and his passion for the sport. He’ll also include some personal stuff like how he overcame certain obstacles like being diagnosed with ADHD and being raised by a single mom.

This is Michael’s second book – his first, a pre-Beijing autobiography, “Michael Phelps: Beneath the Surface” was written after the Athens Games.
