Cummings, G. Walking for Road and Track Link House, 1934 (2nd edition, 1947) Largely an exercise in self-advertisement, with descriptions of some of his "record" walks, often over strange routes, such as Hartlepool to Hull; he was an enthusiast for self-massage and devotes a deal of space to the subject. A book that is worth reading, not least because the author was really the last of the professional line.

So kämpfte und siegte die Jugend der Welt
Knorr & Hirth, Munich, Germany, 1936
A memoir of the 1936 Summer Olympic Games. Miller was the starter for the track events. A short chapter deals with the 50k walk, a spectacular misprint giving Whitlock a winning time of 3:30:41·4, an hour short of the actual, although the correct performance is given in the tabulated results. Like Olympia 1936[Anon.(10)], it gives surprising prominence to the achievements of black athletes (and the Japanese) as well as Germany's 8-1 hockey defeat by India.  In German (Fraktur type.)

Tibballs, G.
The Olympics' Strangest Moments
Portico, London, England, 2012
On the 10,000m walk at Helsinki: "To see a male Olympic walker in full cry is to be reminded of Barbara Windsor in a Carry On film, wiggling down the road in a tight skirt hoping to catch Sid James's eye ." On the women's 20k at Sydney: "When a TV reporter....asked Saville what she wanted, she answered simply: 'I'd like a gun, so I can shoot myself.' That's how many people feel at the thought of having to watch an hour and a half of race walking." They may also feel like that after reading such a book.
