This guide takes the gold! With enthralling coverage that extends from the early competitions in Greece right up until today, it’s a fascinating mix of history and trivia. One by one, it goes through all the games—both winter and summer—of the modern-day Olympics, as well as the Paralympics. Listings highlight the chosen venues, from the 1896 rebirth in Athens to the upcoming events in Beijing in 2008, and there are tables of all the included sports and plenty of amusing, memorable quotes. The controversies are here, too, including 2002’s big scandal over IOC members accepting bribes for votes.
