Speed Kings: The 1932 Winter Olympics and the Fastest Men in the World is a Ebook I've just finished the book and I feel like I want to go tell everyone about these interesting, crazy rich, dare devils. I'm glad the book sort of focused on Billy Fiske because even though slight in stature he certainly seems bigger than life. I can't imagine racing down those mountains the way he did but I'm so glad he found his calling to make the Olympic story richer and this telling such a great adventure.I wish the book had a list of characters for reference. If you are just starting out I recommend keeping a list because it is a lot to keep up with as they meet, head in separate directions, and reconvene at other stages of their lives.I think the author, Andy Bull, did a spectacular job of wrangling all these people, places and events into an addictive story of adventure, risk and reward.Thanks to Penguin Random House for the advance copy. In return I offer this unbiased review..

Popular Ebook Speed Kings: The 1932 Winter Olympics and the Fastest Men in the World Just the kind of book I like - history that reads like fiction! Whirlwind action and perspective on the early 20th century across numerous landscapes.
