Co-founder of Philosophy Football Mark Perryman's new book is neither against sport, nor anti-Olympics. Rather this is a hugely imaginative blueprint for what a better Games, for all, might look like. The book combines a carefully-researched critique of the reasons why the London 2012 promise of regeneration and boosting the numbers who play sport is a fiction with a pioneering vision for a new model Olympics. Five New Olympics Rings are proposed to create an Olympics founded on decentralisation, participation, mostly free-to-watch, accessible sports, the Olympics as a symbol for sport not a logo for the sponsors.

An argumentative sprint rather than a marathon thesis. EXCLUSIVE SIGNED EDITION from Philosophy Football.
