The Economics of Staging the Olympics by Holger Preuss Book PDF Summary

'The book is chock full of data and history. . . Preuss's book provides an in-depth, comprehensive look at the economics and finances of the Olympics. The book merits reading in a sequential fashion, but readers interested in particular topics would still benefit from reading only specific sections. It does contain a number of graphs, tables and some equations, but the accompanying text is written in an accessible manner that should not put off non-specialist readers.' - IPKat
