Great book

WVMLStaffPicks Sep 14, 2014

This official book of the 2010 Games fantastically details a uniquely Canadian event. Containing hundreds of incredible photographs, it is the ultimate visual history of one of Canada’s and Vancouver's greatest moments, chronicling everything from the humble beginnings of the Olympic bid to the fantastic closing ceremonies. An exceptional behind-the-scenes look inside a once-in-a-lifetime event that reflects Canada at it’s best. A worthy coffee table book for all generations!

Book returned at the Coq Library on March 7, 2011.

Afraid this will be late delivery to VPL, so renew the book.
