Comment: This book has already been loved by someone else. It MIGHT have some wear and tear on the edges, have some markings in it, or be an ex-library book. Over-all it is still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

I very much enjoyed the book. It had many good lists to read through. I would recommend for any serious Olympics fan.

I was looking for some books on the Olympics to beef up our elementary school library's offerings as the Winter Olympics approached. The is not appropriate for an elementary library because of several of the lists included. There was too much discussion of doping, aggression, violence. Our parents would not have approved of this book coming home from the library, so I took it to a used book store. An adult might enjoy it, but it wasn't the slant we wanted for our students.

Interesting book. However, it was much smaller than anticipated. Somewhat disappointing. Will see if the 12 year old Olympic enthusiast who is getting this gift responds.

the person I gave it to loves it. Just enough details to make him happy. It arrived packaged correctly so the pages were safely packed.
