Book Summary

It takes just under 10 seconds to run, but to the winner of Athletics' men's 100 metres goes the accolade of "The Fastest Man on Earth". The Fastest Men on Earth, first published in 1988 as a tie-in to the Thames Television series of the same name, is reissued in a new, exciting format, fully revised and updated to include the incredible men's 100 metres final at the Beijing 2008 Games. Each chapter discusses not only the race itself, but also the preliminary rounds, dramas and controversies and includes interviews with all the key players, not just the champion. Immaculately researched and written in an entertaining style The Fastest Men on Earth brings to life some of the greatest athletes who ever set foot on a running track.

Author Bio

Neil Duncanson was a trainee news journalist in East London before working for a number of national newspapers. A freelance writer for both the written and visual press, he moved into television as an assistant producer at Thames Sport, where he devised and researched the 1980s book and TV series The Fastest Men on Earth. His other book credits include The Olympics, a book on sporting technology, as well as collaborations with Patrick Collins (on Tales of Gold, celebrating every British Olympic gold medalist) and Norman Giller (on Crown of Thorns, a history of boxing's world heavyweight championship). He joined Chrysalis as a freelance producer in 1990 to head their sports division. The division grew dramatically and Chrysalis Television, now North One Television, was set up in 1997, with him as CEO, a position he continues to hold.
