3.0 out of 5 stars Facts about Olympics 2012 14 Aug. 2012
By Elle

Geared towards an American audience with mentions of NBC and prices all in dollars, this short book is interesting but didn't actually tell me that much new information.

I did indeed watch nearly the entire thing and I already knew most of these facts. While it may be more helpful to people who weren't quite as glued to the television as I was, it was too short and choppy to be of much use to me.

Content interesting..............but considering the price, poor value for money. With many, many more books for much, much less money. Never ever felt like asking for my money back before, but apparently you could. Refund will be sought.......

So many factual and spelling errors in this book. The editor should have done a better job. The writing was very amateurish too.
