"Secrets" takes you on a wild ride of Olympic proportions! The book delivers on its promise of "behind-the-scenes revelations" & leaves you wanting more. A perfect companion book for someone who will be glued to the telly for the London Olympics this summer! Or for someone who reads the sports pages only during the Olympic Games.
Only a genuine, crazy fan like Garcia could have written a book such as "Secrets" !

Just finished the eBook version of SECRETS OF THE OLYMPIC CEREMONIES. It’s entertaining and informative all the way. Ever since I saw my first Olympic ceremony in Montreal 1976, I was always fascinated by how they put these unique spectacles together. I may have missed some in-between, but this ebook does a great job of filling me in on the ceremonies that I missed. SECRETS is fun, knowledgeable and full of juicy gossip.
While I may not get to London this year, I have one regret about this eBook version. It has a modicum of pictures which the print version has. There are barely a dozen photos whereas the print version (which I have seen at a friend’s house) is just overloaded with great photos of ceremonies past. Failing that, I am looking forward to the London ceremonies in July even from my home screen, fully armed with a lot of juicy, backstage anecdotes from this volume which is still a great value and keepsake. The 2012 edition (either version) features a good teasing preview of what to expect from London this July. It’s a very comprehensive book, filled with all the strange and fascinating facts that would gladden the hearts of most Olympic fans.
