FORMANS GAMES by Lance Forman
Available on the Forman & Field website, Forman’s Games lifts the lid on the acrimonious battle that pitched Forman’s, the country’s finest purveyor of smoked salmon, against the combined might of the UK authorities and the International Olympic Committee in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics.
This is the story of one family business, established in 1905, fighting the might of national and local government, the London Olympic Games Organising Committee (LOCOG) and of course the Olympic Movement, which operates above the laws of the countries who host its activities. It got nasty, and until now the full story has never been told.

Here are some reviews of the book so far:
“An exquisitely score-settling book.”
“Amid what is an undeniably fascinating insider account of skulduggery and double dealing with businesses that had the misfortune to be located on the land earmarked for the Olympic Park, there is a good-news story of success by a little guy against all the odds.”
“Forman’s Games is a fascinating insider account of what happened in the aftermath of London’s successful Olympic bid. Lance’s account lifts the lid on his relentless fight, his sheer chutzpah and how he forced the establishment to sit up and listen.”
