In 1984 David Wallechinsky published the first thorough guide to the Olympics, a book written with the same rigor and style that made the bestselling The Book of Lists, co-authored by Wallechinsky, a compelling read and must-purchase volume. Ever since then, David Wallechinsky's books have set the standard for Olympics reference -- the first purchase and the last word for all those who love and follow the Olympic Games.

Do you know...
-- What four-man bobsled team had a member facing the wrong direction?
