"Olympic Gold is the first official history of the Olympic
Games on CD-ROM and it's full of details about the last 100 years of the Summer
Olympics. There's no cute mascot or wacky approach, just a plethora of
well-organized information that would stump even the biggest Olympic trivia
"The disc's main flaw is the scope of its coverage - there's
no Winter Olympic Games data. However, if you love the Olympics and are gearing
up for the 1996 Games, Olympic Gold is a great way to learn all you'd ever want
