About this title

Synopsis:

Seven unusual, distinctive, sometimes passionate stories appearing unrelated will give you a new perspective of the modern Olympics. From the views of the athletes, the spectators, the reporters, the coaches, or the administrators discover what the Olympics could be in the future. Dare to jump into a new life with novel perspectives and hopes, or lack thereof. Will our lives be so different? Will our goals and ambitions be altered? What will we live for? What will be driving us? Is the Olympics then of any value, protecting us from complacency, boredom? Or does it prevent us from moving to a higher consciousness level and to progress further? These are all questions that we dare not ask ourselves today. But the time might come. Through these short fictional stories, you will be challenging your mind for an answer. Is there a purpose for the Olympics today and in the future? Maybe! But is there also an answer to the purpose of life in the near future when (we hope) current conflicts, social differences will somewhat disappear, and when new technologies will truly help us live better lives.

About the Author:

Former international athlete, Cyreen Audel had a first love for robotics and artificial intelligence. The author moved astray toward other aspects of the business life, from banking to consulting to entrepreneurship and to the corporate world. Sequentially resident of various countries, the author has forged a deep concern and understanding of cultural differences, but kept his love for sciences which can be either the hope or the demise of our societies. The author has observed through the world the cultural application of sciences to better our world and forged a hopeful perspective, especially in the learning and communication applications. The author keeps being involved in competitive sports and witnesses the growth, the failures, and the benefits. The love-hate relationship with modern Olympics was certainly a driving force for the completion of this book.
