Michael Phelps circles book deal

Olympian's memoir set for holiday season

Simon & Schuster has announced that Olympian superman Michael Phelps will write a book about his exploits in Beijing to be published in time for the holiday season.

(Already) titled “Built to Succeed,” the memoir will recount the swimmer’s experiences enroute to notching a record-breaking eight gold medals at the XXIX Olympiad, which concluded Sunday night.

Along the way, Phelps will expound on the personal philosophy he brings to his athletic pursuits as well as reminiscences of his childhood and struggle with attention-deficit disorder.
