How to watch the Olympics

If you're one of the many cynics then the Olympics is a disaster for this country. Wildly poor economic prioritising in a time when we should all be eating park foliage and drinking bowls of silt straight from the Thames.

If you're slightly more fun, you'll be looking forward to it. Authors David Goldblatt and Johnny Acton fall into that category and their book 'How To Watch The Olympics' is a superb accompaniment to The Games. Here, they give you a guide on what every armchair fan should be looking for, and when throughout this stonking event.
