It's a winner!,
This review is from: How to Watch the Olympics: Scores and laws, heroes and zeros - an instant initiation to every sport (Paperback)
To be honest I'm not a big fan of sport but it's hard not to get drawn in to the huge whirlwind of the Olympics, so every four years I find I'm watching on TV (often perplexed) some sporting activity in The Greatest Show on Earth and wishing I could make a bit more sense of it.
Fortunately, the best possible book to accompany armchair participation has come to my assistance and is highly recommended to anyone who's in the same condition of ignorance as I am! 'How to Watch the Olympics' not only explains the business end of the sporting action - with helpful diagrams - but provides some excellent context for each game, giving the history, notable moments and top winners, all conveyed with an underlying sense of the authors' passions and wonderfully wry humour.
Get a copy now so you can swot up on fascinating facts in advance and impress your friends as you watch the Games together, or just enjoy giggling with each other at the book's photo captions.
