By A Customer on July 9 2004
This book gives you all the top 8 finishes in Olympic History. Most sources give you the top 3 or some give you the winners only. In Track and Field, they tell you that Bob Hayes won the 100 meters in 10.05 in 1964 in all others they tell you 10.0. Most people don't know that Tokyo used auto-timers for their Track events and you know that Henry Carr won 200m in 20.36, Mike Larrabee 400m in 45.15.

HASH(0x9bbb3588) out of 5 stars THE Olympic book to have. Aug. 18 2004
By Taylor Jernigan - Published on Amazon.com
After a long search for an Olympic record/history book, I am very glad that I found this one. As another reviewer pointed out, one of the jewels of this book is that it list first through eighth place for all events. And it covers ALL events, including the discontinued ones (tug-of-war, croquet, the swimming obstacle race, etc...). There is also a short background history on a vast majority of the entries which is excellent. I have been extremely happy with this book and I'm relying heavily on it now during the Athens Games. I will definitely buy his next Complete Book of the Winter Olympics.
HASH(0x9bb9fd50) out of 5 stars Very Nice Acquisition Oct. 31 2008

It's a very nice acquisition considering the space available. It is true that you can gather much more information on a specific Summer Olympic Games website, but then you would need a volume for each edition of the Games.
