In this book review, Iain McRury looks at an account of the "wake-up call" aimed at the International Olympic Committee in the late 20th century to prevent it from becoming ’extinct’, and its subsequent revival as the Olympics became a brand in itself. This is a re-issue of a book first published in 2005, updated with added material from the Beijing Games and some prefatory comments on London. MacRury judges it as timely and a welcome re-issue of a seminal account of the latest phases in Olympic and sports marketing
