From the multi-million selling author of The Book of Lists and The Complete Book of the Olympics comes an entirely new take on the Games. Wallechinsky has a uniquely vast knowledge of the Olympics and an unrivalled head for arcane – now the two are combined in this collection of 150 unexpected Olympic lists, including: • The eight slowest Olympic competitors • The twelve strangest sports ever contested • The six most spectacular collisions and falls • The top ten shaven-headed Olympians Published for the 2012 Games, The Book of Olympic Lists is a quirky compendium of the unusual, the unknown and the downright bizzare. More than simply a book of lists, Wallechinsky elaborates and expands on the reason for an athlete or incident’s inclusion, to create a winning – and highly addictive – alternative history of the Olympics. David Wallechinsky has produced nine editions of The Complete Book of the Olympics, as well as the bestselling Book of Lists, in collaboration with his nephew Jaime Loucky. He is vice-president of the International Society for Olympic Historians and has been dubbed the ‘Human Encyclopedia’. He divides his time between California and Provence.
