Bill Shankly is the man who shaped Liverpool Football Club. His legendary status on Merseyside and within the history of the game cannot be overestimated. Renowned for his commitment, restless energy and laconic aphorisms, he followed a respectable career as a player with an incredible one as a manager. Having been in charge at Carlisle, Grimsby, Workington and Huddersfield, he arrived at a struggling Liverpool in 1959 and transformed the club. With amazing pace, Liverpool became one of the most successful clubs in British football.This, together with the force of his incredible personality, ensured Bill Shankly would be remembered forever as one of the all-time great figures in football. With superb photography from professional sports photographer Steve Hale and text from prolific Merseyside writer Phil Thompson, this delightful biography records his life - from his birth in Glenbuck to the glory days when Shankly laid the foundations for Liverpool's rise to domination of the domestic and European football scene.
