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?
-- Which couple scored the highest point total in ice dancing history?
-- Who was the first-ever Olympic gold medalist from the tiny nation of Lichtenstein?

All the statistics for each winter sport throughout Olympic history are here, as is complete information about the 1998 athletes and teams. Fully revised and meticulously researched, and compiled with classic photographs, this is the ultimate source for sports fans and Olympic enthusiasts alike.
