This book is about the history of the 1972 Munich Olympics. These games most remembered for the terrorist attack on the Israeli athletes, is not the main topic of the book This is a complete history of Munich games from the very beginning stages the the final ending ceremonies.
This audiobook is broken into two parts. FEEL FREE TO FAST FORWARD THROUGH THE FIRST PART, as most of this part is boring. I just couldnt get into the history of german architecture.
The second part is the main gusto of the book. It is here where all of the action takes place. From Marck Spitz to Olga Korbut, the full flavor of the games come to life. As if that wasnt enough, the mens finals in basketball between the US and USSR is detailed
There was a lot more to the Munich games besides terrorism. This book succeeds in telling us.

If multiple typos are unacceptable in a written book, then this audio book was ruined by a complete lack of audio editing. The worst offense was reading the winning time in the US 4 x 100 meter relay as 38 minutes and 19 seconds, instead of 38.19 seconds. C'mon, doesn't anyone proof these things?!
