The heartfelt memoir of a single mom and an educator who raised three exceptional children, including the greatest Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps During the 2008 Olympic Games, when Michael achieved the impossible with his record-shattering eight gold medal wins, Debbie Phelps nearly stole the show. Few could forget the homage Michael consistently paid to the one person on Team Phelps most responsible for making it all possible: his mom. While those highlights will forever be remembered, few know the behind-the-scenes story. Now in "A Mother for All Seasons," we're given the untold story as lived by the mom on the team. Candid, lively, and charming, it offers timely, common sense wisdom, lessons and insights, and provides a much needed reminder that life doesn't always turn out how you plan it, but can sometimes turn out even better.
