If you're a real athletics enthusiast, then you'll be thrilled by the release of The University of Technology Jamaica: Road to Olympic Glory, From Dennis Johnson's Diaries.

This colourful, 270-page book is an important addition to the documentation of Jamaica's rich sporting history. In the words of Professor Errol Morrison, president of the University of Technology:

"This is the story of the Calabar star athlete-turned Jamaican Olympian who brushed off the obstacles of physical injuries that cut short his own career and transformed that experience into a national sports culture which has resonated the four corners of the globe. The world will speak for a very long time of our small country and its cadre of athletes and those from other sports disciplines who are mainly descendants of the Coromantees or Ashanti, who were known for their agility."

This book is an important addition to any sporting enthusiast's collection.
