I understood this book to include the London 2012 Games which it did not. I thought it would be a book incorporating previous Games and the London Games. It was published before the 2012 Games. The title is very misleading. I was disappointed. It is Ok if you want the history of the Games up to and including Bejing 2008. I was looking for a book that included previous Games and the 2012 Games which it did not. So I would not recommend this book unless you want all Games excluding 2012 which I presume most Brits would not.

The book arrived three days after being ordered from Amazon and is magnificent. It is easy to use as a reference tool and easy to browse and enjoy whatever period suits. Well worth the money and gold medal should be given to all involved in the compilation.
