      The book is heavily illustrated with cartoon style illustrations, which add a lightly humorous touch. Topics covered include a chapter on great Olympic heroes and there is an appendix listing all the dates and venues of the summer and winter Olympics.   Tucked away in the vast library of mediocre books about the Olympics are some real gems. Olympic historian David Goldblatt surveys the field and picks the gold.

      Hosting the Olympics is an enormous, high-risk undertaking. Unlike most other megaprojects, Olympic facilities have a rock-solid completion date that must be met. Dams, courthouses, and highways can be completed late; Olympic facilities can’t. Tokyo Olympic Games competition venues.

      The Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games has tried several times to bring the Games back and a new group is vying to be the U.S. candidate for the Olympics and Paralympics.   THE GAMES documents the long, rich history of the Olympics from its inauguration of the modern format in hosted by Greece up until the present day.4/5.
