No wonder they call it "The Dream".

For 16 glorious days in August 2004, Australia's Olympic ambassadors Roy Slaven and H.G. Nelson holed up in their old haunt, The Sparta Club, to unpick the rich tapestry of the Olympic movement from the heart of Athens (described by Roy Slaven as "arguably Greece's most modern city")

The best of their award-winning mix of hard-hitting analysis, interviews with athletes hot off the medal dais, and commentary on fencing, weightlifting, wrestling, gymnastics and other Olympic delights is all here. Plus, from the place where the Olympics began, all you need to understand about doing things Greek-style.

H.G. Nelson explains: "As Brad Pitt said to me in a break in the filming of Troy, 'H.G., the Greeks are cool rocking dudes. From what I have seen so far, they know how to love, how to fight, and they are not afraid to party.' Coming from someone as switched on to the international scene as Brad is, that meant a lot to me."
