Site Offer The Olympic Games are coming to a close this weekend, and so does our Beijing Bonanza sale at Register Books. However, there is no need to miss out as you still have ample time to get stuck into our knockout discount of 50 per cent off* on over 1,600 books.

It has also been brought to our attention by one of you (in typical Reg reader fashion) that we do indeed have a somewhat on-topic Olympic Games title – so here it is:

Higher, Further, Faster: Is Technology Improving Sport?

In this book Stuart Ross guides us through the impact of technology on modern sporting events. Are referees and umpires becoming redundant? Who is really winning the drug war - the dopers or the testers? Ross gives his opinion on each of these topics and a whole lot more. You’ll also get the chance to explore the developments in equipment, clothing, playing surfaces, diet and illicit performance enhancements throughout the history of sport and be guided through an in-depth analysis of where we are now and where we will be in the future...

...switch 2008 for 2080 and there could be not one but three different Olympic Games. The amazing Megalympics in which drugged-up and genetically modified athletes risk their lives and sanity to perform unimaginable feats. This would include the Original Olympics, which is the same as 2008 but with a body chemistry-analysing chip implanted in athletes to make illegal performance enhancement impossible, and the Real Olympics, based on those of ancient Greece, in which all athletes perform nude but to fantastic viewing figures!

Check out a sample chapter (pdf) for this book and let us know what you think in the comments section. Remember that, like all our Beijing Bonanza titles, Higher, Further, Faster is currently discounted 50 per cent* - to just £6.49.

So make sure you get your orders in now, and don't miss out on the last few days of our Beijing Bonanza. ®
