How to Watch the Olympics

David Goldblatt

Overview

For about two weeks every four years, sports like badminton and water polo gain millions of new fans as people tune into the Olympic games – and then are forgotten just as quickly. But given that Olympic athletes train their whole lives to represent their nation for just a few days, don't we owe their events a bit more consideration?

David Goldblatt is an award-winning sports writer and broadcaster, while Johnny Acton - the 5th Baron Acton - is the author of multiple books on subjects ranging from comedy and popular history to sausages and hot air balloons. In this book, the authors offer an engaging guide to the events, history, and culture of the Olympic Games.

How to Watch the Olympics was written ahead of the 2012 London games. But its witty and comprehensive descriptions of every sport and ceremony should serve us well for many years to come.

"The most watched event in history wasn't the 1969 moon landing, the episode of Dallas which revealed who shot JR, or Charles and Di's wedding. It was the opening ceremony of the Beijing Summer Olympic Games."
