Review:

David Wallechinsky is a compulsive listmaker. He first turned his eye to the Olympics in 1984, and has been updating his efforts ever since. This edition of The Complete Book of the Winter Olympics is a perfect companion to watching the games. Packed with results of every event ever contested, it adds just enough history, observation, and insight to assure another gold-medal performance. The Complete Book of the Winter Olympics 1998 is a bravura exercise in both the trivial and the pursuit of excellence.
