Interested in the Olympics or Sport? Read this book,
This review is from: The Secret Olympian: The Inside Story of the Olympic Experience (Paperback)
I read this book in 3 days - couldn't put it down.
The author has interviewed Olympians who competed in many different games, from 1968 (Mexico City) onwards, in many different sports (Fencing, Rowing, Hockey etc), meaning the book is accessible to anyone interested in sport.
Funny in parts, touching in others and peppered with anecdotes from the authors own and others Olympic experiences the book allows you to see the Olympics from the perspective of those who compete in it, rather than just watch it like most of us mortals.
