Review by: howard jones on March 11, 2012 : (no rating)
A very good read. The author hits on a wide range of 2010 related stories and weaves them together in a great narrative.
Whether you were or were not a supporter of the 2010 Olympics you will find plenty of food for thought here. I would liked to have seen footnotes explaining his sources, freedom of info, etc.
