OK. But not quite what I was looking for.

Any additional comments?

Competently executed, and will delight sports nerds. However the things that I was hoping to learn about the Olympic movement - the background, city-selection process, logistics, organization, finance etc, are all glossed over very briefly indeed. The focus of the book is quite tightly on athletes, sports statistics and medal tallies.
