An interesting book looking back to the start of the Olympics and the revival of it through the International Olympics Committee.
The book features the early aspects of the Olympics from its conception in Greece through to the most recent Olympics to be held in London 27 July - 12 Aug 2012.
The involvement of women at such events from women being unable to watch let alone participate in the games to the very fact that women play an considerable part in the games. The book also includes the Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
A well planned book showing not just the history of such an event, but much of the behinds the scenes planning.
