As befits a book of "moments", this book consists of a multitude of short, descriptive chapters, most illustrated with a single full-page photograph. Most, too, are titled with a single athlete's name; some, like "Brian Boitano and Brian Orser" celebrate a particularly intense battle. Greenspan's U.S. background shows to some degree, but he is also a genuine Olympics-aholic, so this gives him a reasonable internationalism. He does not limit himself either to the American athletes or to the American-preferred sports. His approach is deliberately achronological, so that Dorothy Hamill's 1976 victory is described between Bill Johnson's 1984 downhill skiing victory and Tomas Gustafson's 1988 speed skating.
