I bought this one because it goes far back to the first modern Olympic Games. I was also looking forward to a journalistic perspective of the Games because they are, without a doubt, (perhaps more than anything else) a media event!
Although the approach is that of a serious newspaper (and that is what I wished for, so I was glad about it), the stories don't lack entertainment, emotion, excitement, and, at times, an academic kind of historical, sociological, cultural analysis.
A great book!
