FURLONG, John




With help from veteran columnist Gary Mason, Olympics boss John Furlong has recounted his behind-the-scenes version of how he handled the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver and Whistler in an immodestly-titled memoir called Patriot Hearts: Inside the Olympics That Changed a Country (D&M $32.95). His 14-year-long account includes dealing with the death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili and unseasonably warm weather. 978-1-55365-794-1
