Well Worth Reading,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London's Olympic Follies: The Madness and Mayhem of the 1908 London Games: A Cautionary Tale (Kindle Edition)
Obviously this year is one in which the Olympics has loomed large in all our lives. That makes this a particularly interesting read.
It is a comprehensive account of the first London Olympics. As well as a full account of the key moments, it gives loads of good background to the birth of the modern games.
With memories of London 2012 fresh in the mind, the stark contrasts between then and now are absorbing. Some interesting photo's are included as well as good lists of events and results.
If you are interested in sport, it's well worth reading.
