"While other books on the topic go into more depth on specific sports, athletes, or historical events, none are as enthusiastically broad or as enjoyable to read as this one...Wonderful research notes, an annotated resource list, and an Olympic quiz bring this book across the finish line first."starred review (2004 edition), School Library Journal
