Great book, from the moment I picked it up to the moment I put it down. The author has obviously put a lot of time and effort in to churn out this fantastic read. Looking forward to the next book by John which is already ordered. This book wins the gold medal all day long!!!!

As you will see if you look on the internet or in your local bookstore, there are 100s of books about the Olympics. But there is only one L2012 Olympic Games Miscellany and this is an officially endorsed book that I can highly recommend if you are searching for one all encompassing piece of work from both a historical and an informative nature.

The Olympic motto above means, Swifter, Higher, Stronger. Just one of many informative entries in this book which gives exceptional value for money from amazon

All you know, think you know, have forgotten and wish to know about the Olympic Games is in this quirky little book. A really fascinating read and a great insight into past Olympic Games. However, I did notice a duplication of one entry. So if you intend to watch the Games get yourself a copy of this book and gen-up on what happened at previous Olympic Games.

Did you know that all athletes competed in the nude at the Ancient Olympic Games? Just one of 100s of interesting little snippets from this brilliant book by John White. A real bargain buy of a book for all Olympic Games enthusiasts.

If you are looking for a single book which will teach you all you could possibly ever wish to know about the Olympic Games then buy this brilliant book. It is a superb read from first page to last and will inform you about all of the famous athletes and sportsmen and sportswomen who have graced past Games and went home with the gold medal. Keep it beside you when you watch the London 2012 Games and see how previous athletes compared in the various Olympic finals. I thoroughly recommend this book and modestly priced it is a bargain buy on Amazon.
