From the Publisher:

The must-have guide to the 2012 Summer Olympic Games

Next summer, millions of Americans will tune into the Olympic Games, the largest and most popular sporting event in the world. Yet while it's easy to be fascinated by agile gymnasts, poised equestrians, and perfectly synchronized swimmers, few of us know the real width of a balance beam, the intricate regulations of dressage, or the origin of those crowd-pleasing legs-in-the-air swimming formations. Luckily, David Goldblatt and Johnny Acton have created this utterly thorough and always fun guide to the rules, strategy, and history of each sport. With witty, detailed descriptions and clever illustrations, How to Watch the Olympics will help anyone grasp handball, archery, wrestling, fencing, and every other Olympic event like a true pro.

Praise

"The authors offer information from the ground up about every sport in the Summer Games--they explain why it's worth watching canoeing and field hockey--along with loads of facts about the rules, the scoring, and even the equipment specs." - Louis Menand 08/06/2012
